This is a lovely little coffee shop and the coffee is great but both times we visited it was about a 10 minute wait for our coffee. This is just luck of the draw I guess as lots of other people came in at the...More

Very handy shop, selling a good variety of wetsuits for all ages. Friendly helpful staff and a good shop to stop at for souvenirs or presents.

We picked up some great local produce from the shop. The locally produced sausages, bacon and eggs went down really well on our breakfast BBQ. The coffee and hot chocolate were good, a nice location to have a coffee and pick up some groceries.
