Quite the Café with a great selection of healthy, organic and typical food to choose from. All cold drinks are healthy not a fizzy drink in sight! Coffee was worth every cent. A main street location makes it very accessible and is proof of its popularity.

Great coffee, food and service in a beautiful village. Inside or outside seating, as well as a cosy 'nest' for a more private setting.

Great selection of freshly prepared food. Cheese rolls were delicious and lemon yogurt cake was a real treat. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere. One of the best cafes we have found on our trip down south over the last few days.
