This cafe used to have waitress service and served high tea. I do not like the cafeteria type service that is now in place. The cafe I s good for a rest and drink with refreshments, without exiting the house.

After a few hours at the house my family got hungary and we decided to eat at the cafe. Very cute inside with the gift shop on one side and cafe on the other. I got a ham sandwich which was very good.
