Good pancakes

called here for pancakes and milk shakes, when we needed a sugar shot! It was an extremely hot day and sitting on the veranda in the shade was very welcome. Food good, service good, in our experience.

Comfy seats. Ice cream was ok, but have had a lot better. Difficult to tell which flavour was which? I managed to find only one raisin in my rum and raisin ice cream. Beer was ice cold.

We ate here before going to the night market which is just around the corner we ate burgers and fish and chips. Both meals were good basic food.
