Great views looking out to sea. Staff not very friendly but good coffee. Looked to have a good choice of homemade cakes. Interesting shop to look round.

You might want to stop here for a spot of lunch, a cup of something or a refreshing drink when visiting any of the attractions up in Monte. Good food, good service. Nice view.
