Of all the places in the district we called into over the weekend this was the least welcoming. The attached shop was just as bad. Luckily the girl at the store next door showed some hospitality so that's where we spent our money

Take your time and enjoy the food, the drinks. Great for lunch or afternoon snack. The food is great and the view. Nice terraces in the shade and in the sun.

I am unsure why you think I should be paying power for backpackers to charge anything? Maybe they should come prepared and buy a $5 car charger if their phone cant make it through the day without going flat. If you had taken the time...More
