We turned up for a walk as a friend recommended visiting area. It didn't look that busy from the outside but was surprised how popular the cafe was. Really nice homemade cakes and we will be back.

Great service and food/drinks. Would recommend if you are ever in the area. Coffee cake was Angela’s choice and I had the scone. Both delicious.

Café besides a lake popular for anglers. Really beautiful and quiet spots. Tables inside and outside with lake views. They have the usual café food with homemade quiches and frittatas but their specialty are the cakes. Absolutely stunning and home made everyday
