Just the perfect place for coffee, cake and relaxing after a day in the mountains. Scrummy breakfasts, just what you need!

Visited today for lunch with a friend. We both had the lamb burger from the specials board, served on a sour dough bun with chunky chips and salad. It was all delicious, moist tasty burger and really lovely bun. Too full to try the cakes, which all looked great. It would have been difficult to choose between them anyway. Will... More

It seems the prices are going up (£1.35 for a sausage!) and the quality and service are going down. I had more bread than bacon on my swich!

6 of us .....age 17 to 80+ ,had a fabulous lunch at this lovely cafe in it's beautiful setting. I really enjoyed the tapas (delicious, plentiful & good variety), & each family member loved their meal too. it was very busy for a weekday lunchtime - so probably best to book ahead. Will definitely return when next in the area.

Thank Huddies
