Dropped in for coffee and enjoyed it. Coffee was good, place quirky and with a pleasant ambience. Nice place to relax. Food looked great! Better option than some of the mass market bus tour venues elsewhere in this busy tourist town.

stop here for excellent coffee and cakes and sandwiches. We LOVED the apple and berry cake - warmed up with a coffee and took two smoked salmon sandwiches to go for the next day. Fantastic!!! Fresh and delicious.
