This is a tiny little restaurant with a nice view of the market. The food is good, but the service is on the slow side (20 minutes for drinks). We had a veg burger and a salad. Because the eating area is on the tiny...More

They donate 50% of the profit to charity so I feel a bit bad criticising the food, but my Greek salad was a bit average compared to what's available elsewhere. Needs to be bigger and have a dressing - olive oil and lemon would do...More

We stopped for an ice coffee and some of the fantastic banana bread and homemade peanut butter- it was as good as the reviews say. Great place to people watch and take a step back from the hustle of the Main Street.
