Have had some great breakfast's here and meals. Any time of day is good. Summer is fantastic and in winter they have some fires going to make it cosy. Good food- My favourite winter dish is the " Deep Blue Chicken"

My wife and I visited the café on a public holiday afternoon. The café was pretty full. We enjoyed the great view and the cafe's atmosphere. We ordered a cake, chocolate mousse, and coffee. The cake and the chocolate mousse arrived quite soon, but the...More
