Wide choice of traditional ice creams and fruit sorbets. Very pleasant service. We always took advantage of the take away for convenience but nice clean seating is also available.

We had some great savoury cheese and ham crepes here for dinner at a very reasonable price. You can buy them and eat them on the beach across the road. A good alternative if you are having a budget dinner night.
