“Basic but quirky cafe.”
Reviewed July 13, 2013 via mobile

A quirky colourful cafe. The food is basic but good if not slightly highly priced. However, having set that, the service was friendly and very quick. The pricing is slightly unusual as it appeared that you had to pay extra for any garnish with sandwiches and baguettes etc.
However a friendly place which the kids loved.

Reviewed June 12, 2013 via mobile

As holidaymakers this quickly became our favourite tea room, now we live here and our opinion hasn't changed. Great, friendly service, delicious home made food, plenty of variety, reasonable prices, perfect setting. Highly recommended.
