We had fresh fried cod (not the fish and chips), which was great. Not a fancy place, but good food and decent price.

Staying at Cabot for golf. This cafe is just down the road. Had breakfasts there 3 days. Good food and friendly service well priced. We had pancakes, French toast, omelettes. All quite good. Has full menu but we only sampled breakfasts.
