A little out of town, but worth the visit! Food is brilliant, prices good and the traybakes and buns are to die for! The decor is very cool and everything is very chic. Make sure you visit the toilets too!

It's hard to recommend one choice of food here - all we had was excellent! One particular recommendation is - try the tea! I'm not a great fan of small china cups but when you have piping hot tea served from a good teapot with a tea cosy it's a different matter. Each day we were here it was solid... More

Olive Bizarre is a delicious little spot in the harbour area of the town. You can enjoy exquisite teas/coffees with goodies galore and a view to die for. Our afternoon tea is highly recommended and our traybakes and scones will not fail to please. We have a vast range of savoury dishes and provide an array of gluten free and vegetarian foods. Our child friendly policy is also popular and to top it all our friendly team will make you feel very welcome. See you soon. John and Ciaraxox
