We stopped here for lunch on the recommendation of our tour guide and based on Lonely Planet information. We needed a lunch stop that could cater for our two young boys (4 and 6), who are still adjusting to the local food. The food was...More

Very good food with exceptional service. This cafe was recommended by friends who visit regularly. Friendly owner, Mr Cu, has his phtos on display on the walls which are nice look at and are conversational pieces. Highly recommended.
