“Great cafe and they even have gluten free options!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 April 2014

The owner is so kind and her service was outstanding! She did everything possible to make sure my friend and I had a great experience. The gluten free food was delicious! There is also an advertisement for vegan food, but I didn't check out those options! All around a great place to eat!

“First class ingredients and service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 April 2014 via mobile

A fantastic coffee and italian snack with beautiful, authentic ingredients all set in the shadow of the castle. Friendly, helpful staff who even suggested and booked an evening restaurant for us. Ten out of ten for all elements!

“Ideal for lunch with family”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 April 2014

We popped in here after a visit to the Castle. We have 2 young children - 6 and 8 and the owner, menu, cost, service and quality of food was perfect for us. There is a stack of books, games and bits n bobs for the kids and overall we were made to feel very welcome, with nothing to much bother. Fab coffee and view of the castle. Not too busy and a welcome retreat from the hordes of tourists up at the castle!
