Only had drinks sitting in the shade in this charming cafe but they came with lovely nibbles included in the price. A lovely place to while away some time people watching. They also have an extensive snack menu. Good service and friendly staff

Sweet, little cafe. Lovely view and very reasonable food and drink. It is very nice to have a quick relax whilst looking round the town. The cafe has its own little history too!

Loved our aperol spritzs which we enjoyed most days! A great people watching location. Drinks came with a variety of little snacks, olives, ridge crisps, focaccia squares, pickled chillis. Helpful staff and reasonable prices for such a well located cafe.
