The view from this cafe is great but the food is very ordinary and not to be recommended. Worth buying a drink just to sit here. I would take a picnic if I was to visit this area again.

This snack bar is ok but sadly the food isn't very tasty and the staff is not very serviceminded or nice. Almost rude. We felt like they didn't want us there.

A coffee and a really nice cake, friendly service and a great view. It gets busy, so you may need to wait to get a seat. But Def worth it for the views
