“A Good Choice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2013

The cafe offers a wide choice of food that is tasty and well priced. The balcony seating offers a nice view of the harbor but can be a bit noisy. Seems popular with both locals and tourists.

“perfect coffee and cheese cake!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 1, 2013

After we hadn't had a decent coffee for more than 10 days we walked into the Shell Beans. The latte macchiato and the iced latte were great! The cheese cake and the muffins are delicous, too.
They have very friendly staff and free wifi access which worked really good.

“A lovely cafe by the corner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

Overlooking the sea, you cant go wrong with this little cafeteria, by the corner, opposite the jetties.

We entered for a quick bite, and when the order was served, it looked like we asked for dinner...

Courteous staff, clean place and good food... Highly recommended.
