Great place to pick up some inexpensive gifts. Not too expensive & has a little for everyone. A few buses were stopped with tourists, they were in & out. Plenty of parking

We spent a considerable time in this treasure trove and bought all sorts of lovely things Jumpers sheepskin slippers, hats and scarves. The owners were very helpful and spent time telling us about the area and the family business. They even gave us two chocolate bars !We found similar items in other shops to be more expensive

Nice place we came across on our travels, if you get a seat by the window you have added bonus of a nice view down the water. Food was good and tasty.
