Fodor's Review

Wholesome foodie cafe Hislops is a local institution, also a few minutes' walk north of town and worth the trip. In the morning you'll find tasty free range eggs and bacon, plus freshly baked, genuinely stone-ground whole-grain Hislops bread served with marmalade or their own honey. The lunch and dinner menus use organic ingredients wherever possible, and there are wheat- and gluten-free options as well. The menu changes seasonally but choices may include a potato and

feta rosti, seafood chowder, or fresh cabinet-style food. On sunny days, snag a table on the veranda. Evening dining includes seafood, lamb, and some vegetarian and vegan options.
