I ordered a smoothie and it came out very late. However the taste was just fine. Staff was kind though.

Had a late breakfast here before starting our walk down to the lake - very good food, toasted sandwiches made fresh and the coffee and hot chocolate was good. Reasonably priced too. Service came with a smile and a pleasant chat - definitely recommended.
