Very small local café on main street. Service can be a little rough at times, but the pizza and bread are very good.

Wonderful bakery. Enjoyed the pizza with thin crispy crust and non greasy pepperoni. Yum. Also got a grilled cheese sandwich on sour dough bread that was quite good. Cookies are excellent!

Great, fresh paninis. Quick, friendly, and efficient service. Tiny location so do not expect much fanfare.

Stopped in for a coffee and a sandwich, opting for the day's special panini - haddock. It was very fresh and tasty and the coffee was fine. It really hit the spot for what we wanted, good value and the place was nice and clean too.

There are... More
