Dec holidays-peaceful coffee

We dropped in for some breakfast and coffees. Great soot with lovely garden area, nice decor and yummy food. We enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere whilst reading the paper and enjoying our coffees. Busy but reasonable table service

Whistling Fish Bookshop closed reopened as Gather Restaurant

Has reopened as a restaurant. We didn't try food but décor and menu looks great. We like coming here for a pre-dinner drink in the garden before going to Sails Restaurant.

Stopped by and had a cold drink on the lawn with cheese and crackers with olives and date paste... Delish! Lucky, the dog there, is very friendly as well, be warned loves pats and ball thrown :)

Not quite as advertised but still good
Jul 2015
We stopped here as we had read in a brochure for Woodsoak wines and a wine trail brochure that they did tapas here as well as wine tasting and boutique beers. They however don't serve tapas at all. They have toasted sandwiches and bruscetta only. Both were quite nice but we had our heart set on tapas! The shiraz was very nice as was the Robetown beer.

Surprisingly good!
Jul 2015 • Couples
I'm usually very skeptic about places that classify themselves as too many things. A cellar door and a cafe and a bookshop, but I was pleasantly surprised. We came in to this place for a quick wine tasting and ended up staying for lunch. The food was delicious and the wine was exceptional! And the atmosphere of the cosy little bookshop was just so comfortable. Would definitely recommend to anyone in the area, wine enthusiasts or not.

Its a very beautiful coffee/bookshop. Not only is the coffee good (its also from a local company,) but the environment and atmosphere is great. The owner is friendly and an interesting man to talk with. We brought a couple of books and had a coffee. Pattered the dog. It was the highlight of a two week trip. Inspirational.

Just coffee
Cosy interior and pleasant garden made this a great alternative to a very busy main street on Monday at the end of the long weekend. Great coffee, want to try Mahalia's too and the caneles took us back to France :-)
When searching for cafes on TripAdvisor beforehand you didn't come up, but listed as a nightspot/bar.

Great coffee but awful service
Great coffee but awful service. Served by the most uninterested and rude man. Grunted at us. No please no thank you. Life is too short to be that unhappy.
