Friendly service but the environment was very noisey. The coffee was good. The food was presented well, and tasted okay but was nothing extraordinary.

If good food and superb surroundings make you happy then this place is a must to visit. The Lemon meringue pie is spectacular with lashings of whipped cream and the fruit smoothie was excellent. An experience not to miss with very friendly and helpful owners.
