Visited for Sunday brunch. Food was ok but service was very poor. Was not greeted when arrived and staff member at counter did not say a word when we went to place our order. Not friendly atmosphere at all. Probably wouldn't bothering stopping here again

Stopped in for a coffee and a bite too each. The food was fresh and good quality. Coffee was excellent as well. There's a nice fire that you can sit by... If you're quick. Small gift shop, selling some local items. This place surpassed expectation!
