Amazing breakfast and deserts along with an awesome company. An apt place to take a book and park yourself... More

We ate here as this one was open on a Sunday. A cute offset joint which provides accommodation as well (cottages!). Shop around in the hustle and bustle of the main market and then head this way for a cool mocha shake with savory cakes and welcoming hosts. Do try the date n walnut cake. Superb!

Went there after breakfast to have a some coffee and cake. The place is downhill from the main square. Its run by a foreigner. The coffee and cake we ordered was not that great though the lady was kind enough to give some extra coffee which was left while preparing coffee for us. The chocolate cake was just ok. The... More

I enjoyed my coffee and orange cake here while reading a book at this cafe. It is a small mom-and-pop setup with homemade cakes and savories. I quite liked the seating area- birds chirping in the background is probably the best ambient music ever. The coffee and cake I ordered was not extraordinary, but it's just what I needed after...

As you walk downhill away from the main market, you come across this quaint little place; I tried the Black Magic cake, which tasted a bit dry and bland. The chocolate shake was better, though. Nothing out of the ordinary, just a good place to sit and read.

5 of us stayed in 2 cottages, and we loved every moment of it. Location is central but still quiet. Rooms are spacious, well appointed and clean. Hospitality is warm, personal and genuine, and our host, Cheryl, loves telling stories. The cakes and apple pie are delicious (with cream of course, don't be shy). Not a single complaint here. In...
