Came here today for the first time. It was very very close to closing time which we didn't realise but the staff allowed us to stay and order our food! (Which was outstanding!) We didn't feel rushed even when we were still sat eating nearly an hour past closing time!

Absolutely amazing small café, its unfortunate that they only open until 14:00! The smells of the food but you as you walk in and subdue you to stay! I would absolutely recommend to anyone to have breakfast or lunch here!

We had lunch here for the first time. Overall we had little to complain about. They provide reasonable food at a reasonable price. Cheese on toast could have more cheese!

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
