Lovely little place, run by local people. Visited it several times. Always welcomed with a friendly smile. Prompt service every time. The Rose Geranium ice cream is highly recommended .......

Lovely setting on the high street, the cafe/bistro allowed dogs. We had coffee and Sandwiches, which were very delicious, would happily eat here again.

Family and I ate here on out last day on the islands. Full breakfasts all round with tea, coffee, toast and Juice. All cooked fresh to order using simple local ingredients what's not to like. The café itself is much larger than it appears from...More

I’ve eaten here a few times, especially on the days when it’s a bit wet outside, so their soup is always lovely then! Good value, and decent portions of food.

This place has gone through many owners and is always very convenient but rarely memorable. Very convenient for take away lunches or a quick snack but one always feels that it could offer more, not least in its opening hours.

We had a great lunch today. As always there are a good selection of toys for the kids. A good kids menu and great food for the adults.

Called in for tea and scones and were surprised to be told that they were closing after a few minutes. Tea was OK, scones a bit disappointing. Would like to return here with more time available.
