Good food and craic. Been here a few times and always had something a bit different. Had an impromptu lesson on how to drink coffee here too. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Change of ownership hasn't effected its philosophy. Shame it isn't open in 2017 season...More

Went for the sticky buns. Not very sticky. Pretty dry. No nuts, raisins or frosting. Bread ok. No one there. Cute shop but not much morning action.

We were on the way to Neist Point but it was pouring rain so we stopped on the way! It's a great place and we were lucky to get a table. Fabulous home made food, great coffee. Highly recommended if in the area!

If you are in the area of Glendale, you really must visit here. The scones and cakes are all freshly baked and the coffee is made to order. The staff are very friendly and we were lucky enough to chat with the Scone queen herself...More

They serve local, fresh and organic foods at the cafe. It's well presented and tasted great. The cafe overlooks a valley with sheep. The cafe is off a single track road.
