Can not fault this café!! Loved the food! Portions were just right too! Service was quick and efficient and staff/owners were very polite. The café ended up being completely packed out with tourists and locals. Would definitely recommend a visit if your visiting the area. Reasonably priced menu.

The owners and staff were very friendly, cheerful and unhurried. My wife and I had an excellent lunch here. The meal was good honest no-messing-about food and the bill was very reasonable. The tables were spotless, cleaned thoroughly after each customer. I noticed that the young lady clearing the tables and filling the dishwasher washed her hands after each action.... More

Teacakes which were as big as a dinner plate and came with lots of butter and jam! There were lots of fresh delicious looking cakes and cookies to tempt one as well. And if you're bored lots of small knitted handicrafts to purchase (tea cosies etc) for a reasonable price.
