Lovely place with views of the beach. Popular and airy. Unfortunately the vegan chef is against meat and omitted it from the game terrine dish. Had to send it back. Was returned with tiniest amount of meat added. Shame.

I stopped here on a whim as I fancied a coffee. What a lovely find. Staff super friendly and helpful. Coffee and cake was super value and delicious. The place was buzzing and packed. I think this is a good sign. Definitely I will revisit.
