We wanted some lunch of local crab sandwiches and stopped here. It is a mix of gifts, food and drink and has lots to offer. The crab sandwiches we had were lovely, tasty and great to sit outside and watch the world go by.

Looking for somewhere for afternoon tea in mid October. Found this place with a sign outside for crab meat sandwiches. Problem solved, choice of white or Brown bread filled with white crab meat. Excellent. Toasted tea cakes were disappointing, lacked spice and were doughy. Also...More
