A bit on the pricey side but a comfortable and good selection for breakfast... Coffee is good and service is very friendly.

More 3.5 than 4 but recommended. Staff are friendly, service is good. Food at breakfast and lunch is good quality with a wide range. Comfortable seating inside and out, great on a warmish day facing west.

This lovely little cafe is situated near the bottom of the town from the sea. We stopped for lunch and a drink and were greeted by friendly and helpful staff. When eying up squid, I always ask if it is fresh - you can tell...More
