Really good coffee and good pies. And benches outside to sit and eat. Absolutely beautiful items, and some stock we saw no-one else; but quite pricey. Still good stop for re-fueling and spending an enjoyable quarter of an hour or so.

Great spot to stop for a winter warmer coffee or home made Pie. We pulled in for coffee and found a great little shop to meander in out of the rain with all sorts of treats, both local hand made and commercial comforts.

They serve really good pies and hot food over the counter. Good to check it out if you need anything from this small town.
