Really cute little place. Great food for two vegetarians. Nice seating area outside, which was covered over from the rain. Comfy chairs to chill inside. Also really close to the beach

Very tasty and healthy food at reasonable prices. Breakfast is even cheaper than at local restaurants. Only con is that they already close at 3pm :)
