We called in during a day trip to the west based on the Trip Adviser reviews. We weren't disappointed. Keeping in mind were you are, it isn't large - the tables were full so we ate at the community bench. The food, coffee, tea, and service were all very good.

Had just done a walk along the coast and was in need of refreshment. Great choice of food and although not cheap I must admit you get what you pay for. What we saw and tasted was excellent and easy to see why there was no empty tables!

Ahhh, the Cook Book! I only wish I had used it more often when I lived in the area. It was lovely to revisit and find it just the same, good quality fare and buried in books! The cakes are to die for, the snacks are delicious and the staff helpful and friendly as are the proprietors. They produced a book about the place with recipes but sadly, it won't be reprinted. How lucky am I to acquire one of the last copies!

I always have the cheese scones here because they are so good and really cheesy. The coffee is good and comes in a large mug. There are light bites on the blackboard so you can have something more substantial if hungry.

This lovely little cafe is always welcoming and serves the best coffee for miles around. They make their own cakes and the breakfasts are fantastic. It’s a must when we are in St. Just!
