I stopped into this cafe after a long walk and had a lovely lunch. The menu was limited because it was off season but it still had enough variety for me. The locals who come into the cafe are also very friendly and welcoming.

On a wet and windy day it was great to be able to sit and have lunch with the spectacular view of Rhossili Bay beneath us. Friendly staff and tasty food. The Bhudda Bowl was extremely tasty and the open steak sandwich full of flavour...More
