This place is great for coffee and views! Perfect location, and the perfect place to start your day on the island. They have the biggest and best hot chocolates and baby cinos for the little ones!

Cooked breakfasts are very generous in size and use fresh ingredients, coffee's are also generous in size. Staff are friendly. Small range of items available to take away, i.e. pies and cakes.

Went for a snacky lunch and only had sausage rolls, pies or quiches on offer. The food appeared and tasted as if it had been microwaved. While the flavour was nice the texture was yuck. The hot drinks were hot and flavoursome.
