Just off waterfront, offering a small but tasty menu in very clean, warm 2 storey cafe. Reasonably priced and great service.

Excellent home made soup with chunky bread followed by lemon cake and coffee. Perfect after a busy morning and preparation for a further meeting. Thanks for the welcome break. John
