This is a busy and thriving cafe. Busy but there are lots of tables so no problem getting a seat. There is a reasonable selection on the menu and the views over the lakes are stunning. Well worth a visit.

The food is a basic range of snacks, cakes, drinks. A lovely environment to enjoy your food as you look out on the lakes.

In a beautiful position on the lake, with seats both inside and out, this is an ideal spot on a summer day. Service needs to be a bit swifter to keep queues down. Sandwiches were a bit expensive , but were very good. Great selection...More
