We had breakfast here with friends. The breakfast food came from the Mermaid Kitchen side of the restaurant and the coffee from Doctor Luke. Interesting setup with two different businesses in one location - but it works. Pleasant spot for conversation.

We stopped mid morning for coffee and a snack. Coffee was excellent - good cream and flavour. Butter tarts were fresh and also great. Good place to visit if you're nearby.
