If the meals are not up to scratch don't send them out and don't make customers wait a long time. Was told they didn't expect to be so busy- really! Lift the game Gusto!

I chose this cafe for its extensive lunch and brunch menu, felt like pasta lunch so ordered the smoked salmon pasta. It was delicious, generous with the salmon and just the right amount of capers to add piquancy. Will be back to try other items on the menu.

This cafe was right around the corner from our accommodation and looked a good choice, and it was if you are looking for something to fill the gap at standard cafe prices.

We ordered two coffees and a muffin. Sat outside and waited quite a long time, beginning to think they had forgotten. When it did arrive it was very tasty. Staff in not very clean clothes or aprons, one young man dressed more suited to a skate board park. We did wonder what the kitchen would have been like!

cafe of choice for a morning coffee or a full on breakfast, good selection, friendly staff, food always consistent, one of our local favourites and has been for 16 years.

Great food and price. Does take a bit of time to come but well worth the wait. My only negative is seeing babies being carried into kitchen by ?owner / cook. Not a good idea health wise

We had a really good meal there recently and swore that we must go Back for breakfast as the section and prices were good. It's always been popular with the locals and tourists.

Undercooked muffin, poor quality toast and jam. Sad tired decor, not changed for at least 9 years. Good coffee.

I went with family and we all enjoyed our food. Just can take a while for the food even when they aren't that busy. I have been here probably 5 time and each time its been good. I will continue to come here.

So many great gluten free options and the food is seriously amazing! The atmosphere isn't great but its definitely worth it for the great food and reasonable pricing

Thank sazpost123
