Really liked the art in the place, as well as the espresso-by-the-sea setting. Nice to chat with the owner for a bit. A shame we we discovered this place on the way out of town.

Had coffee and cakes on the open air terrace overlooking Newberry Beach then admired the amazing art for sale. Ask the owner for the background to the name of this place - it's a fascinating story. Would recommend a visit here.

A lovely little coffee/tea room hidden down by Newberry Beach. This cafe also sells local artists wares and if you get a chance ask the owner how it came into being as it a interesting story.
