We stopped for lunch and ordered soup and sandwiches followed by lemon meringue pie. One of us took the gluten free options. Both enjoyed an excellent lunch. Friendly service, great local personality.

Staff go out of their way to make sure everything is top notch. They have gluten free options also. Peter loves to meet people and love to joke around.

Delightful establishment that has a friendly family atmosphere, which offers a variety of culinary choices. The English style pancakes (Crepes) are a must when visiting this places. Also, try the wonderful homemade bakery goodies. The staff are friendly and very helpful, and spend time chatting with customers, making this a delightful place to visit.

Good for crepes and breakfast, coffee and home baked goods, and lunch. Gluten free options a specialty. Courtyard for the warmer days otherwise a cosy and welcoming cafe inside. Local artist's paintings displayed on the walls, a favorite with locals.
