The most amazing coffee - we went twice in one day just to have some more, and the biggest cakes! Cinnamon Swirls (lush), Flapjacks (sticky), Brownies (gorgeous), and did I mention the coffee??

But it was delicious. Great service from very friendly and attentive staff. Good location, just up from the beach with a great view of the tall ships in the harbour.
