What a wonderful quirky "little gem" we came across one Sunday morning. The owner/s couldn't do enough for us. The breakfast was fantastic and bought a bottle of the homemade lime and lemonade, delicious. The antiques/curiou's were beautiful. Even the owners odd shoes were captivating!!!...More

What a lovely, quirky and interesting cafe. The food is excellent and I also highly recommend stocking up on some flavoured oils and vinegars (all homemade). Sam and Jane are very friendly and welcoming.

Unique experience in a small cafe that is set inside what can only be called an antique shop. Owners were friendly and food was good value for money. Definitely reccomend the homemade lime and lemonade. Very refreshing on a hot day.

Stoped at the cafe for lunch. It’s a great set up cafe come curiosity shop. Filled with locals, even the table we sat at was for sale. Everyone was friendly. We had sandwiches and lemonade, all extremely fresh and very tasty. Definitely recommended.

IF you can;t stand the identikit cafes which seem to be on every street corner right now, this is the place for you. Quirky does not do this place justice - it really is an interesting place to while away an hour or two. Food...More
