A quick stop for a delicious carrot cake and a cup of tea. What a wonderful experience and a great way to spend some time in the sunshine.

Your question seems to have been adequately answered by others. But I would recommend you walk there and take a taxi back to your ship. The walk, provided you are up to it, will permit you to stop in at Pelican Craft Village... More
