Good food and great coffee in this place, right by the main intersection (front and left when coming from the south). Nice place to sit on the sidewalk.

Tried the mussel platter for lunch. Lovely meal and enough for two. Mussels done in a variety of ways including chowder, marinated, crumbed. Staff were friendly and restaurant was nice with indoor - outdoor options.
