The title sums it up but I'll emphasise. .. Go to the cafe, it's excellent value. The ice cream is superb esp the lemon. The staff are very friendly. The antique stuff is quite good but it depends on your personal taste.

It was nice to find such a place at a tourist location, rather than the run of the mill gift shops. Inside is an ecclectic mix of craft, vintage and antique units plus a cafe! Large carpark too!
