Great little cafe. The views are amazing. Only had coffee and a date scone but both were fabulous. Service a bit slow but otherwise fab.

A nice holiday destination, a lovely place to visit the views are fantastic. There's an educational short ride at the top worth doing. Wear comfortable walking shoes. Lunch is very affordable.
