Good breakfast, good staff - only complaint is that it was a dark place in which to eat breakfast. Need brighter lights for the daytime. The darkness in the day made it feel unwelcoming and gloomy. Otherwise a good place for breakfast - definitely nice food.

This was our first meal on the island which came highly recommended from the locals traveling on that mornings ferry with us. The food was good, not great but good.

Although you may find better breakfasts on the island, the staff here is amazing. Shout out to all of them- it was busy and they were handling it with ease.
