“It's great - a lovely building, a great cafe and a really useful shop. It's run by and for the community - every pound spent here helps people stay on the island. It is like a city cafe - proper coffee, lovely food, nice atmosphere. It is pronounced 'An Cruv' and is back up on the main road - an easy walk of around 20 minutes. ”
