This was a cute spot with nice lunch selections. My husband had the smoked salmon, which is some of the best I've ever tasted.

The lamb shank was excellent. No Knife required to eat this dish. My wife enjoyed the char, as well. Definitely worth the stop if you're in the area.

You can watch cows being milked through a glass wall just off the entrance to the cafe. The food selection is limited and very expensive. Fresh milk and homemade ice cream.
