Dishes are creative with everything made from scratch. The cafe is in a beautiful garden. All dishes are vegetarian.

Went with husband and 2 children on route to the volcano. After some pretty mediocre food in recent days this was a welcome find. Fresh food served by friendly staff and owner. Nice to look around the gallery too. Gardens make a nice relaxed setting.

Even though it was raining and somewhat cool, my husband and I enjoyed a late lunch of pizza and drinks. For a casual yet above the ordinary, this place should be visited.

I am sorry, I must have clicked on the wrong review. I get so confused with Tripadvisor sometimes I don't know where to click. It must have been for the one above yours. Thank you for visiting us and hope you come again soon.
