We ate breakfast here two days in a row. The “home-made” muffins were very tasty. The menu includes take away breads and pastries. Most of the customers seemed to be local ex-pats. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly, recommended.

Good spot with good, fresh and healthy food and homely atmosphere in walking distance from the airport. In a town where restaurants are scarce, especially good ones, Hilary's is well known to locals as well as to tourists who have done their homework.
