You're not going to get a more delicious and honest approach to cooking and service than ILK Cafe & Gallery. I was truly blown away by the genuine care taken by service staff. You don't get service like that very often. Then the fact that the food was superb in every respect (including locally sourced ingredients) was just a fabulous... More

Being lucky enough to live very close by to Ilk, we have visited many times. Sometimes just for coffee and usually cake... the lemon meringue pie is simply gorgeous! As are the freshly baked muffins! Lunch is always a delight too. I particularly enjoy the toasted lamb wrap or the vegetarian one which is served with a couscous or sometimes... More

Had lunch here on a sunny weekday. It was very busy with overwhelmingly retired folk. Waited quite some time to be given menus & served meals/drinks. Chairs were very uncomfortable which meant that we didn't want to stay - perhaps that's the plan! Have to admit that the homemade quiche & salad was nice but certainly nothing to rave about.... More

Have been here twice with my husband since its opening. A picturesque setting, lovely food prepared, cooked and presented with soul by Sam. Staff great and attentive. We'll make it our "favourite" and will be back again and again. Keep up the good work.

This is a newly opened cafe on the lovely Rosevears Drive about 20 minutes outside Launceston. We enjoyed good coffee and spectacular desserts in this cafe which has a lovely ambience. The food is a labour of love, so don't expect express service. currently closed on Tuesdays and Wednesdays.
