Passed bye this quaint little cafe on my way to my hotel. Has good variety of reasonably priced local take away food. It is popular with locals and tourists alike.

I tried a vegetarian melt sandwich (avocado melt) which was delicious. However, a half sandwich for $9.50 seems a bit pricey to me. My son had a yummy blueberry muffin. The coffee was excellent. I'd go back here again for sure despite the pricey sandwich....More
