Neil was great! Very entertaining and we could have spent more time chatting with Neil. Maybe next time. The soup was great and the relaxed atmosphere also. The location is so pretty.

As a member of the hospitality industry I was impressed that this restaurant did not have a limited menu/stock before closing. I loved the Thai crepe with a fresh salad/English salad cream. The cappuccino was hot not the lukewarm stuff you get elsewhere.

We only had cappuccinos and espressos - they were delicious. Neil also serves up some interesting snacks but we were expected for dinner at the home of a friend and so refused to be tempted.

Fantastic lattes and lovely selection of local art/crafts/photos. Watching the whales play just down the way was amazing!

I recently stopped by this off the beaten track coffee shop / restaurant for a quick Americano. Although the weather was miserable the owner greeted me with warmth and the coffee was wonderful.
