A smallish place for good, inexpensive food and a place to meet for some youth as well. We had soup and chips and could well warm up again, enjoyed the simple style and the friendliness of the staff.

A little home-spun place with almost no food when we visited for a late lunch. Many better places on the island for very good food!
