This cafe is on the other side of the island to where we were staying but definitely worth the trip for the morning coffee (although its only 20minutes). Friendly staff, great coffee and lovely atmosphere. I didn't eat but my husband enjoyed his steak breakfast.

Great menu for breakfast or lunch. Fresh food and friendly staff. There were plenty of locals (which is always a good sign) and tourists. Lovely seating arrangement outside but covered over. Well worth a visit.
