Lovely, cosy coffee shop in Charlestown with lovely, friendly service. It's very, very small inside but they have maximised the space well and there is an outside toilet.

Lovely rustic meals, good portion sizes and very reasonably priced for what you get. The staff are very friendly and nothing was too much trouble for them. All in all a great place to eat.

Friendly little cafe for both locals and visitors to enjoy coffee and lunch. Just up the road from the harbour. No need to look any further. Highly recommended.
