There is a delicious and varied selection menu which includes beef cheeks, crab omelette, and usual breakfast favourites. In addition there is a range freshly baked pastries to select from, all this food is supported by great coffee.

Came in only for a cuppa and a snack. The service was very good and the staff very happy and friendly. May not have a view of ocean being one street away but the people made up for it
