This is my second visit to Cappadonna and the result was again outstanding. This time I spent time with colleagues for a business meeting and the standard of food was excellent. Highly recommended place in the center of the town's business area.

Great coffee, good service. Pleasant cafe with inside tables, including bar stools at bench in the open bifold window, looking out to pavement. Also tables on the pavement. Can recommend the coconut and lemon Friands, best my daughter and I have tasted.
