The Villa Coffee House has excellent coffee, and really nice cabinet food - home cooked muffins, slices, etc. The quirky furnishing are a point of difference, and there is a little porch to sit outside if the weather allows.

A great little cafe in an old villa that is warm and comfortable and inviting. It's not huge and therefore you don't feel rushed or packed in. Hot chocolate is good and food is all freshly prepared - mainly scones, muffins and cakes with a...More
