Not sure how visitors would cope if this place wasn’t there! Great for a coffee, wine, frappé, breakfast, lunch or dinner! They make great bread and the best muffins I’ve ever eaten. You can also grab fruit or an ice cream.

Lovely relaxed atmosphere, good variety, friendly staff. Enjoyed some casual lunches during our stay. Lovely Salads, fish and perhaps one of the best slices of carrot cake ever. Helps when you have worked up an appetite snorkelling.
