In winter this is a nice place to eat. In summer it has a shady outdoors area with a view. The food is well prepared, from a creative menu. We'll be back. The attached museum is worth a look too.

Beautiful little cafe with nice outlook. Little blankets on the chairs and the staff were lovely. Coffee and cake were both delicious but I recommend sharing the cake as the serving size was huge!

Our cycle group stopped here for morning coffee - smart cafe with nice outdoor area. Service and coffee were good, but only a few had the cakes (probably due to price).

I was really impressed with how polite and kind the staff we’re as well as the service being above average. My salad was absolutely delicious, this is probably one of the best cafés I’ve been to. I would definitely recommend it to friends and family.

My salad was delicious and the other luncher enjoyed his croissant. The shared cake with good coffee was very good. Unadventurous eaters would need to choose from the breakfast menu, or from the croissants. Staff were pleasant and efficient.
