Despite the queue, service is so fast and well organised you'd think you were in Switzerland. Coffee is great, muffins special (like, raspberry and cream cheese, or spiced pumpkin with dark chocolate) if not sweet enough for some. Very reasonable prices. No internet. Big table New York style with stools to accomodate single visitors, in addition to the usual table for smaller parties. Outdoor seating on main shopping road for watching people, very nice.

Nice coffee and hot chocolate, delicious cakes and cookies, fresh produce, friendly and efficient staff, and a great cafe vibe. This is a funky little spot off the main road for a tasty lunch or coffee with a twist.

Quick stop of for breakfast. Wasn't disappointed at all. Had eggs on toast and hot cakes with maple syrup and bacon, it was delicious! Massive portions, freshly cooked food, reasonable prices, quick service, that's all you need for breakfast.
