Had a big breakfast that wasn’t really that big, it tasted OK to be fair but was spoilt by the amount of Flies. Needs more zappers than just the one behind the counter, but staff really nice

Great little place with lots of choice from the butchery, fresh fish and even pyo strawberries. Also went to the cafe a couple of times for coffee/cake . Seemed to be a good choice on the menu and a pleasant way to spend an hour.
