If you want to come at lunch get a reservation. We came at 11 am and almost didn't get a table. The quiche was great, as was the soup and salad that came with it. A great experience all around.

We really enjoyed sitting on the porch and watching the harbour, while having coffee and cakes. The staff were friendly and helpful, and were able to cater to our "non-dairy" needs without any fuss.

We were two adults that dined here for lunch on August 23, 2018. This is a small but cute café (about 15 tables) that employs individuals facing developmental challenges. We both chose the soup of the day (Moroccan lentil and chick pea) followed by frittata...More
