6. Tupiniquim

  • Where: The top of Middle Meadow Walk (Old Town)
  • Old Town is wonderfully charming and a great place to stay when visiting: 54 (8) St Mary’s Street

Lastly, we felt we had to include Tupiniquim (even though technically they serve crepes) as their food is delicious!

So why not pop by on a sunny day and enjoy a crepe then a wander through the Meadows!
