Popped in for some lunch and we had fantastic crepes and what my partner said was the nicest panini he’s ever had. Lovely friendly staff, will definitely make a beeline for this place when we are next over.

We stopped here for a quick breakfast in November 2017 - sausage and bacon sandwiches followed by crepes! Food plentiful and freshly cooked. Very tasty. Superb coffee. Hope to visit again soon - a small cafe so hope we get a seat ok!
