  • Great views, nice stop for breathtaking scenery and a nice cuppa with scones. Misleading council sign lead us to believe this was a lighthouse.
  • Food was lovely, I ordered the chicken and avocado melt. The view though! You have to come and have breakfast here in the morning it will put a smile on anyone's face.
