This is a lovely little tea room off the beaten path. Frequented by locals, you know you're not in a tourist trap. Yummy cakes with our afternoon tea.

Lovely place, tucked away but really busy, obviously popular with the locals which is a good sign. Lovely friendly staff and delicious cakes, they also do meals but I only went for a coffee with a friend.
