People are very happy and can't do enough for you, but poorly skilled in restaurant and expensive for what you get. Long way to go for an alternative!

We had breakfast once and it was comparable to Sydney prices ~15 for mains. Other mornings we had muesli and yoghurt which we bought from the local supermarket. Takeaway coffees are also good from Cafe Vila
