This wee place makes great coffee and pastries as well as the most delicious creamy scrambled eggs I've tasted (after my Mum's). In the humble diverse Beach Haven village it's worth stopping in.

Good coffee, excellent croissants. I love the personal touch: the owners know everybody and remember how their customers like their coffee.
