So glad we stumbled on this place. Had great coffee and quiche. David’s beautiful art is worth a look. The sculpture garden was interesting and I think kids would like to explore it. The married couple were sweet.

My son and I came here to celebrate his first day at school. Our hosts David and Lorraine were very kind, asking questions about school as they whipped up a delicious milkshake and cherry pie with ice cream - super yummy and very good value.

David and Lorraine are friendly and you can enjoy your lunch surrounded by a terrific range of sculpture and paintings. The quiche and spinach pie were both delicious. Even the salad was perfect!David's mosaics and sculptures in the garden are well worth a look.
