Came here a couple of times during our stay on the island. Highly recommend the eggs Benedict, comes with hash rather than bread and a generous serving of bacon. Definitely well priced compared to mainland prices too. Coffees were good and a decent selection of...cabinet food. Outdoor dining area is lovely on a nice dayMore

Wonderful food and the friendly service, just down the road from the Claris airport this is a must for any visit to the Island, menu or cabinet choices available. Inside and outside seating available.

I got coffee from here a couple of times during our stay and it was good every time. The kitchen was down due to illness when we stopped to eat but the cabinet food looked good and the roast veg frittata I had was tasty....Like most places on the island the prices are getting up there. Nice outdoor area to sit and its worth a visit.More

Easily the best burgers to ever grace my taste buds. Buns are pillow soft, the patties are flavourful & a generous serving size, all the vegetables are crisp & fresh. Truely Fat Pukus are cat's pyjamas as well as being the cat's burgers.

Lovely spot for a regular coffee, snack or meal, or when waiting for your flight. The breakfasts are filling and we can recommend the date and orange muffins. Yum!
