Great hospitality. My 9 year old son told the waitress that their waffles were his best ever. She provided him with their recipe. Cafe is in local tourist office with small display of waterman history of the village.

Great place with delicious soup and a seriously friendly staff. We decided to split a soup and they even put it two bowls for us! The fish soup was one of the most delicious things we have had on this trip so far.
