Bland food and coffee. Disappointing as regards food and beverage. Charming location and service. Would not recommend this cafe. And it is a cafe not a restaurant.

Had a wonderful meal at this quaint family run restaurant with my husband on my birthday following a very windswept visit to the beach! The staff were lovely and friendly and there was a good choice of locally sourced food. We will definitely go back.
