If your in town it's a must visit as it has the most unique atmosphere and food. Super nice place to have morning tea or coffee as well as the best soup and sandwich for lunch you could imagine.

The food was absolutely delicious. You can tell its home cooked and made with love. The atmosphere is simply adorable and I spent my whole visit basking in the sunshine surrounded by a beautiful garden. Can't wait to go back next summer!
