Its the staff that really make this place. Been here several times and always happy with the great big friendly welcome one gets. One feels that you are visiting friends when one comes here. its a small venue with few tables but worth visiting if you can as its also not easy to find, most people seem to just stumble upon the place. Freshly baked cakes and muffins supplement a menu made up mostly of filled pancake dishes. The date and cheese one is interesting and quite tasty. The coffee served is good and correctly brewed and served with little home made bite sized cookies. (of which you can have as many as you like) Ground coffee or coffee beans are also for sale in retail packs along with glass or steel coffee presses. Upstairs they run a guest house although i have not stayed there.

Really good coffee, especially the spiced coffee. The snacks are quite nice, as well. Great atmosphere. A bit pricey but worth the visit.

It was a nice place and the drinks were nice but very pricey compared to other locations. We had wanted to take our drinks on the roof terrace but were not allowed to; I was allowed up there later to take photos of Stone Town.
