Came here to view the whales and had a delightful time. Ordered a tea and was met with poor customer service skills by the employee who was working alone (probably understaffed) tea was ok

After walking around the Lighthouse and talking all the normal tourist type photographs, sit down and have a great coffee at this small but very friendly little cafe. Some inside seats but mostly outdoor seating. Resonably priced.
