Great breakfast! Good coffe! It is a small walk from the beach and not up any steep hills. Located in shadow and the woman running it is friendly and nice!

Lovely little spot to have breakfast. Mixed reviews on the prices. We thought it a bit expensive $25.00 Canadian dollars, but a couple we met also from Canada thought it was reasonable...and the American couple we met thought it was outrageous..so you need to be the judge.

Here you get a warm welcome and feel at home! Try their breakfast and saltfish and bake. Great location in the heart of the village.

Good value, tasty breakfasts served with good coffee or tea. As other reviewers have noted the iced coffee is particularly worth trying. The coffee shop is near Castara's waterfall so taking your towel and swimming costume and going for a pre-breakfast swim is a particularly nice thing to do.

The Coffee Shop is easy to find and worth a visit. I enjoyed their coffee hot and iced. And breakfast is nice. I must eat gluten free so when I saw the limited menu, I was a little concerned. However, my eggs and bacon were not disappointing. There was more than enough variety and food for even a big appetite.... More

Fab coffee and a really good breakfast choice, all served by the lovely Rachel, far easier and cheaper than self-catering. Coffee refills for free too! Looking forward to being back next year.
