Really did love the frappe. Good Ambience and crowd, the server was really polite as well. Great view of the sea and conveniently located near the Helipad parking, would recommend it to any coffee/tea lover.

Lez has hit the jackpot with this tiny unassuming spot on the cliff. His lovely taste in music and fabulous coffee and banoffee pie made our visits to coffee temple worthwhile (we went there 3 times in two days) His coffees and cake are lovely on a nice rainy evening. We will defeintely go back
