A lovely cafe and walk - slightly off the beaten track, but beautiful location. The cafe serves ice creams, chilled drinks, hot and cold food and amazing CAKES! The WiFi worked well too.

Saw the cafe overlooks the white water rafting river. Very easy to find. We had a lovely walk along the riverside and enjoyed a tasty lunch watching the action. Would be brilliant for families with young children.

We just saw a chalkboard by side of road. It was time for breakfast so the 3 of us made a decision and ate breakfast here. The food was excellent and very reasonably priced. This is a great place to fuel up.
