We had a quick breakfast here which was served with freshly cut fruit. It had lovely decor and a very friendly host who treated us like a local even though we weren't :)

Gabi makes fantastic sandwiches and a lovely steaming hot cup of coffee. Her deserts are to die for and all of it for a good price.

We were rained out on our last day camping and treated ourselves at the Fairytale Cafe. It is run by a lovely lady who is a one woman proprietor. She was amazing and the food and coffee was delicious!
