We were looking for something cozy and different and by chance we stumbled across Butterfly,s Bistro. Unsuspectingly packed full for a pre-season midweek evening, the bistro was clearly a locals favorite. The setting was quirky and you could have been in a small European mountain...More

Attended the Saturday market 2 weeks ago and had a wonderful time chatting to the interesting locals and browsing at their many creative crafts. Definitely worth popping by for a really good coffee in the garden.
