Notwithstanding the great location in front of the beach, we were not fully satisfied with the place. Service is friendly but quite slow and they wronged the order. Food is average since they use too much sauces.... Can be better

We had breakfast there and the food was excellent, coffee good,service good. Although later in the day, the coffee, when it was busier, was cold.

What a find! A bit out of the way on the other side of the Island but definitely worth the trip. Lazy, laid back atmosphere, which was just right for the location. Food was simple but fab. Staff were industrious. Location is unbeatable!

We stopped in en route, and loved the coffee, freshly baked almond croissants and views. It was no trouble in finding an almond milk alternative for our dairy-free daughter. And it was good coffee.
