Firstly dropped by for a coffee after beach walk. Really friendly and welcoming staff. At the end of our day after exhausted walk came back for food. Absolutely delicious. Views fantastic overlooking tolcarne beach and good value. Nicely spaced tables. It was quiet when we went but it was a Thursday in November! Well behaved dogs welcome too.
