Great place to go for a coffee or even better for food as we had a lovely meal. The ladies who work there were all very friendly. Loved how all the locals were so friendly and all went in there. Will be returning..

Lovely food during the day, not open in the evening. Sunday lunch is excellent you have to book to get a seat, not a large cafe. Great friendly service.
