The coffee was one of the best I've ever tasted, anywhere in the world. The sea-view location is perfect, and the staff were friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

The cafe is great if you have young ones. There is a play ground out the back so you can kick back whilst the kids play. The food was good and so was the coffee. I would go back.
