We stopped in hoping for lunch, knowing we were late. We we’re warmly welcomed and advised the kitchen was closed until dinner time. No problem though, still plenty of food in the cabinet to choose from. Poppa had a pie and made the dangerous comment...More

We stopped here on the way back from Cape Farewell and stopped for a drink. The coffee is fantastic. The food on offer looked great too and we were sorry we had already eaten. Service is friendly and welcoming.

Very friendly and efficient staff. The food was prepared quickly and was of a high standard. The outside seating was very comfortable, just a little bit of competition from seagulls.

Really busy lunchtime - full tables inside and out but we managed to find a table under an umbrella. Told us it would be a 20 minute food wait but actually more like 10 - pie, soup, panini and great coffee - perfect for everyone.
