It's an example of an excellent cafe. Definitely a hidden gem. Quite and quaint cafe tucked away for the town. Make sure you call for a reservation.

Great food coming off an interesting menu. Cosy interiors and with good service.The location of the restaurant is nice. One aspect to note is that private conversations are not possible, so go there to keep it light and social !
