Stopped for a flat white having followed the sign for 'life changing coffee' at long rock car park. Wasn't disappointed. Very friendly and the view over the mount was the icing on the cake.

We hit the Hoxton special for some local kitesurfing advice and for the rest of the family to enjoy a coffee! Super friendly staff, amazing location. We had to borrow a school kiteboard, which is probably the best board i've ever ridden!
