This is a favourite place for coffee or brunch and the menu has just changed. So we had to choose something new and it was delicious!

Absolutely beautiful food. We had the steak and fish. Both were beautifully cooked and the fish was extremely fresh. Gorgeous setting next to horseshoe beach overlooking the ocean. Excellent service, both waiting staff were helpful and always making sure everything was perfect. Would highly recommend.
