We have visited here twice now and it's easily becoming one of our favorite day/road trip spots. One of the few places you can get a really good drink. Mix of locals and people staying nearby, everyone is incredibly nice and friendly.

It is full of locals who know each other. They were fun and the bartendar was great. Good size shots filled all the way to the top. My husband & I really enjoyed our visit.

Choice of quiches and various salads. All freshly made. Baguettes made to order- nothing is too much trouble. Lovely strong coffee. Well worth a try if passing- either takeaway or sit in/ outside.

We had to make the stop, grab a drink, review the movie but also make a toast to the men who lost their lives. Our bartender made quite the Bloody Mary for us!
