The museum is a must visit, very professionally set out and a wealth of local information. If you get a chance watch the film show as well.The museum is a credit to the island.

Had the salmon wrap sandwich two days in a row. Lots of choice of homemade baked sweets, too. One should see the Museum and this is its cafe. Locals come here, too.

We ate here three times. Tasty home cooked food. Great coffee. Good prices and friendly atmosphere. A great place on a rainy day as you can read pieces from the museum whilst eating or drinking. Good memories!!
