Been here today after the dawn service. We had vegetarian savoury pancake and egg benedict with spinach. They were tasty and big portion. I also had the bounty bar slice for dessert. It was yummy.

What a great spot and I'm always partial to coffee being served with a chocolate fish even without having to order a mocha! Friendly, nice outdoor area and a good place to meet
