While waiting for the ferry we had an excellent breakfast of bacon & eggs which was delivered very quickly with a smile. Great coffee followed while we enjoyed the view of the bay.

Seated by lovely staff with ocean view, tasty food and the children loved their fluffy 'coffees'. Owners are lovely people and also dog friendly! A great spot to bring the family for a nibble!
