A small cafe off the main shopping area. We went in shortly after noon. Not very busy. Several members of staff on. Service a bit slow. Food sourced from local areas. Not impressed

This is the cafe in the Wilson Art Gallery and Museum. You place your order on the ground floor. There is seating on the ground floor and first floor. They will deliver to your table. The coffee and cakes are good.
