Neil was great! Very entertaining and we could have spent more time chatting with Neil. Maybe next time. The soup was great and the relaxed atmosphere also. The location is so pretty.

Walking distance from our rental, open all year. Great place for my coffee fix. The owner is great, friendly and very chatty, nice place to relax and look at the harbour. The store also carries white a few locally made goods in case you need a souvenir fix.

We stayed in a local home in teh neighborhood on our trip around NF. Neil's Yard was just up the street so we went one morning when it was cool and foggy and a bit of rain, which created great atmosphere. Neil was running the show, gave us a rundown on his place. There were wonderful pictures of the many... More

As a member of the hospitality industry I was impressed that this restaurant did not have a limited menu/stock before closing. I loved the Thai crepe with a fresh salad/English salad cream. The cappuccino was hot not the lukewarm stuff you get elsewhere.

We only had cappuccinos and espressos - they were delicious. Neil also serves up some interesting snacks but we were expected for dinner at the home of a friend and so refused to be tempted.

A great little place off the main road. It can be a little hard to find as there are not many signs. The place is so quaint and well done. The expresso coffee is excellent. They have mainly crepes, savoury and sweet, which are excellent. The couple running the place are very friendly. The sit down and location will not... More

This place made for a nice but not great lunch. My husband and I had the Thai and Indian crepes, which also came with a salad. We also shared a dessert crepe with rhubarb and strawberries. The crepes were reasonably tasty, but the mix of flavours could have been better. I wouldn't call it delicious. The Thai crepe was a... More

We happened to stop here for a light lunch one day and we are glad we did. Neil was very welcoming. I had a bowl of Morocan lentil soup which was delicious and my wife the quiche. The tea roon/cafe is comparatively small but the food was more than satisfying and the service was excellent. Well done!

Fantastic lattes and lovely selection of local art/crafts/photos. Watching the whales play just down the way was amazing!

I recently stopped by this off the beaten track coffee shop / restaurant for a quick Americano. Although the weather was miserable the owner greeted me with warmth and the coffee was wonderful.
