The season is coming to an end but there is still a nice ambience here. A lovely chilled out place. Friendly, laid back staff and good food and drinks too. A pretty place for coffee...dinner ...evening drinks.

Our company is located in a small seaside village. In our space homemade traditional cuisine with fresh local ingredients leading to the remarkable wine list of local organic producers, and in combination with the user-friendly interface and highly trained staff creates a valuable option for relaxation and enjoyment. Our shop serves traditional breakfast with fresh fruit juices, homemade cakes and pies. You can choose from our menu, appetizers and main dishes cooked with love and respect to raw materials. Do not forget to try the excellent Tarama and homemade pie Mrs. Ritchie. Also a very interesting proposition is the cocktail serve with fresh ingredients. Occasionally we organize musical evenings with local music without microphones and sound installations, so that we become a company.
