This is a cafe combined with an art gallery, shopfront for local artists and swcond hand book shop. The food is simple but well prepared with a huge range of teas. The art is reasonably priced and good quality second handbooks very cheap. Lovely setting as it is a converted old house so each room is a themed sitting area for the cafe.

good coffee,and coffee training

Really good atmosphere. Reminds me of some hidden away coffee shops in Melbourne that you always go back too. I attended a coffee making course here the course was good and the coffee was as well. Haven't had the chance to dine in yet but will be doing so in future

I visited Tea tree on two occasions and I must say that the experience was somwhat disappointing. First time tried to get some coffee just before 4 pm, the door was open with a large sign indicating it is open . Once we found our way to the counter the guy apologised and mentioned " Sorry we are actually closed".... More

I love the location and always recommend my friends check this place out. The food is always excellent and there is always something new in the building to look at.

A visit to the old manse next to the Uniting church reveals a quirky gallery, bookshop, eating areas and lots of stuff [ you can only call it stuff, but good ]. For lunch we tried one of new Chef, Brandon's pasta dishes. A Tagliatelle Puttanesca with prawns. This flew straight into 5 star territory. Beautiful pasta properly cooked [... More

Went to this cosy little tea room on a Saturday for Lunch. In the past its been a bit hit and miss with the staff- almost reminiscent of Faulty Towers. But on this occasion the service was impeccable. The young guy that served us (Brodie) was friendly and efficient, so much so that when he would walk away from our... More
