Dropped in when we had to wait for our room to be ready at the B & B we were staying at around the corner. Ordered coffee and also had some raw cake. Wonderful and very friendly service.

I caught up with family here recently for lunch and have eaten here in the past... I was excited to eat here again as my first visit was absolutely delicious (I had Chermoula Chicken) and I loved it so much I started making it at home.
