We love to pop in after school for a treat from time to time. Always friendly. Soup is delicious and my kids have yet to find a brownie that can match the Sugar Mountain Brownie.

Dropped in to dry off after a walk round the lough. The home made scones were excellent, good coffee and large hot chocolates with marshmallows. A nice little cafe.
