Originally a café offering a simple menu, this establishment has developed into a popular restaurant well patronised by local clientele. Not flashy, not enormous, but good meals -- especially lunch -- at very fair prices.

Amazing food, excellent prices and lovely staff. What more could you ask for. Everything was piping hot and huge platefuls. Only down side is the tables are too close together but besides this it was worthwhile going.
