Just had a lovely visit to their coffee shop,which has recently changed ownership. Scott and Liz are delightful hosts,and their new decor,menu and presentation of food,are first class! Their plans for their new business are exciting,and they are full of enthusiasm and energy; they deserve to do well. Don't let the mess in Ocean Road put you off!!
