A very nice cafe with good food, easy going atmosphere and good service in the city center. Duck pate was just great. Nice shop downstairs as well.

We dined at a restaurant beside Avoca but could not resist calling here to take home some of their scones. Definitely the best for miles and a great range-they are huge. Give them a try and you will not be disappointed.
