There weren't many places serving coffee during our November visit, luckily this treasure was. We had a window seat overlooking the harbour on a wet day. We were lucky as the place was heaving. We only had coffee, but it was so good that we...More

The restaurant has a great menu with many creative options to choose from. Décor is a bit wacky, staff are lovely and friendly and very efficient. Four of us had a range of light bites and all declared the food great.
