Nice place to stop for coffee, breakfast or a light lunch. Great view of the beach, relaxed atmosphere. The service is good, but very slow so don't go if you're in a rush.

Nice area with beach and newly renovated shopping area. The cafes itself is nice and very relaxing in Sunday morning. The breakfast is surprisingly good quality and price just about right. Highly recommend and come again.
