Having now invested 25 minutes in... More

Side trip during a reunion. French influence and great menu and service. Stumbled across it and have since found it is very popular with locals who travel up to 50km to visit.

Lovely restaurant with beautiful views. Welcoming staff and prompt service. I had the avocado bagel and a banana smoothie. The bagel was absolutely delicious.

It has a good atmosphere and you could watch the people go by. There are heaps of tourist of tourists walking down the street and enjoying the quaintness... More
