We stayed at the Inn just above the shop. We went down for coffee on Saturday and Sunday morning. We were greeted with smiles and good order taking, but the order turnout was a little slow for the customer numbers. All in all, good coffee...More

Stayed at the hotel above the cafe and they recommended this place. The food was good but a little pricy for what you got.
