Quaint Cafe in a beautiful 130 year old building for casual dining. Sit out front on the street, inside in quaint surroundings or outback in a private courtyard - catering for most tastes with breakfast and lunch featuring galettes (many gluten free options) and crepes plus burgers. We have an offering of over twenty Seriously Rich Italian Hot Chocolate flavours and only the best FTO Naked Espresso. Winter time a raging open fireplace keeps you warm!!!
