During whale season you must stop here for lunch. The outside balcony has an excellent view of the bay. The quiche and salad was yummy, with a side order of whale spotting!

Amazing breakfast spot! The staff were very helpful, friendly and nothing was too much trouble. My entire family including myself really enjoyed our breakfasts. The views from the outside balcony are incredible and the coffee was so good! We will definitely be back.

Fab place to stop off and take on the views no whales but suspects it's the time of year and nature is nature of course
