A lovely friendly little coffee shop that does a mean cheese & caramelised onion panini. The locals were very friendly & had a coffee shop chat with them.

Returned to this cafe after 2 years when we were staying in the area before. It was just as good as before, very friendly and excellent service but could only manage coffee and lovely homemade scones so one day we will return to consume more of their products.

I have not been there in some months, but when I was last there, I found the staff friendly and helpful. The sandwich I had was very nice, and the place is clean, even the loo is clean.

For a small café this place is an excellent example of its type. The kitchen area is tiny, so the menu is small; however what is cooked is fresh and made to order. They have a good coffee machine so that's a plus too. A small number of tables but there is a take-away option.

This is a great little coffee shop where staff and patrons are very friendly and welcoming. Great choice of food and the sandwiches and salads are well prepared with plenty of filling. Reasonably priced too.

Visited here at the weekend as an alternative to the queues and packed nearby larger cliff top restaurant. Very pleasantly surprised, good coffee, scrambled eggs and smoked salmon excellent, couldn't fault it. Friendly staff and efficient service.
