We had a delicious piece of their apple pie and a cappuccino. We also purchased a few of their various chocolates. All were good.

My second time here in the last 5 years and it really once again smashed expectations. We ordered plate by plate so as to enjoy a long and leisurely Sunday lunch with the window view of the monastery buildings. Service is relaxed so make sure...More
