Cafes

Coffee Shop
“Although it is only open in the week (Mon - Fri), you will be hard-pressed to find a better breakfast anywhere. They roast their own coffee and is the perfect pick-me-up. The staff are vibey and friendly. And if you go more than once, you will recognise faces as all the locals return here daily. In the winter, their wood burner makes them a safe haven from the cold. You won't regret going there!”
