Yelo A cheery little joint with customers spilling out the entrance, and casually perched on the front steps, as though it was their best friends house. For location, Yelo has it all- right on the sunset tourist drive, overlooking Mettams pool and Trigg. Great for a sunny day, grab something deliciously understated from the menu or fridges, and have a stroll, enjoy a shop, and take some Instaworthy pics!
