This wee cafe is away from the main shopping area in Bangor, however there is convenient free parking in the car park by the boat yard, near the pier. The staff are always very friendly and the food is great.

This cafe is a hidden gym in Bangor and consistently provided really high quality food. The veggie breakfast is a must have for brunch and the coffee is really good too. Cool staff and lovely atmosphere and the food in the evenings is good too!
