It’s a little cafe specialising in ice cream but also offering savoury snacks and waffles + nice coffee and tea. Also offers a number of events in the evenings. A local gem.

There is a really friendly atmosphere and the menu, though small, is perfect for lunch. Great paninis and really delicious cakes.
