Lovely food, freshly made and really good. Only negative is that you can't buy wine by the glass. Big positive is that you can buy homemade, frozen meals to take home.

Hi, thank you for the great review. Will definitely see what we can do about that wine, sometimes all you need is a glass to get you through the day 😉

What a surprise to happen upon this beautiful café, completely packed for a Monday lunch. We got the last table in the leafy outside area. The service was great. We only had drinks, wished we could stay longer... See you next time.

A good example of how passion and high personal standards combine to create something worth experiencing. A daytime eatery which is relaxed (perhaps even laid-back), unpretentious and representative of the best this little town has on offer. We both had chicken burgers, which is served...More
