Beer available no wine. Very comprehensive menu and excellent service We had a babotie which was served with at least 6 different veggies from the nearby farms. Frikadels with a... More

This is a lovely coffeee shop with limited seating and it can become a bit crowded. That being said the coffee on offer is excellent and the cakes are magnificent. We only enjoyed a mid afternoon snack here but seeing others enjoying their meals inside the restaurant bodes well for the fare on offer.

Lunchtime visit - title says it all; really enjoyed our lunch as the food was nice and the staff super friendly, enthusiastic and helpful, unlike some of the pretentious places in the village.

Were given menus and then left again for an extensive period of time. Food was average and very expensive for what... More
