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.

This cafe/art gallery has lots of rooms you can choose to sit in with really interesting artwork. All local I think. I had breakfast perfectly cooked poached eggs bacon sour dough and chili jam - yum.

I went to this cafe for lunch after being pulled in by the music playing. At first I didn't know where to go as we thought we had walked into somebody's house, I then found the counter. The young lady at the counter did not seem welcoming or polite and ruined the environment the art and the music had created.... More

Coffee a well rounded brew, and the scones served with lashings of jam and cream. The building no longer resembles a manse but a well used space for local artists with variety of spots to enjoy your fare. The front resembles a messy space and I have walked on many times previously not finding it terribly inviting, but I will... More

What a great place to warm up with a hot chai latte. There is a great variety of artwork for sale adorning the walls,from paintings to textiles. Also one room of this old cottage contains an old book shop. Worth a visit for lunch or coffees.

My partner and I had an hour to spare. We both enjoyed the surroundings, he more the bookshop and myself the local artwork and the intriguing repeat mermaid motif. Some of the work on display is sensational. The work of two indigenous artists on display was awesome. Loved the huge turtle dot styled painting. Also a surrealist artist had a... More

The Tea Tree Gallery was somewhere I've always wondered about when visiting PORTLAND and finally got to check it out! Will definitely return!! Great selection of drinks, food, cakes and wonderful artwork. Creative and kooky!! European hot chocolate was marvellous!! Coconut one my favourite. Staff were friendly and helpful for information on sightseeing. Husband said coffee was great and we... More

On a Sunday morning, my husband and I ordered coffee and scones, and the waitress suggested sitting anywhere in cafe, there are several rooms which we did. Whilst enjoying the coffee and scones, another waitress approached as a large group of people were entering the cafe, she asked for a 'big favour' that we move to another room so that... More
