  • review rating 5  The cafe has a nice friendly atmosphere, the food looked good as did the cakes in the display. Instead used the facilities and picked up a couple of things for the road. Great shop for local and products for the eco-minded. Select of local farm produce and quality products in the fridges and freezers. The volunteer staff are courteous and provide some nice small talk. Was reasonably busy for mid-afternoon on a Wednesday.
