  • Really enjoyed the tour. The restaurant dessert omg. I had the nicest cheesecake I have ever tasted in my whole life. Worth a visit the whole place. Thanks.
  • A very popular spot with visitors, good coffee and a place to rest for a short time. Lovely food available. Also some of the local history available to see.
