Clean and spacious cafe. We enjoyed the substantial big breakfast, which included chunky chips. The lemon cake was huge and delicious. Relaxing in the cool air conditioning was bliss in January as an escape from the humidity. Central spot opposite the duty free shop.

This cafe is set back from the road in the town centre. The staff are polite and efficient and it is clean. They serve a range of European type light meals, cakes etc.

Hard to find, easy to like. Great selection of foods from pizza to steak, fish to burritos. Super place to take friends, family or just for a couple. It's not simple to find as its not right on the roadside. On a warm night outside...More
