If you feel like a lush, creamy scrambled eggs with sourdough and real red tomatoes and mushrooms, this is your place. The coffee and tea are equally good, and you look out over the roofs of Stanley. Good, friendly service

Had afternoon tea here and have previously had a meal in this cafe. Afternoon coffee was great and the cake even better. View is terrific, service and friendliness of staff was also well above average. Overall a pleasant and enjoyable experience; if in Stanley certainly visit this cafe. The cafe adjoins a shop which has an extensive range of Tasmanian... More

Food is very average. There are better places in town. Overpriced food. Limited menu. Found this place on trip advisor and by the comments and rating thought would be good but very very disappointed.

Thank you for your review. For your first and only review on Trip Advisor, you certainly went for the jugular! With over 30 selections on our menu daily, between 8-10 cakes all made by us using fresh, local produce, we are all bemused by your comment 'limited menu' and we genuinely think you have mistaken us for another venue or...

i gave a review before and rated this establishment well however I would like to upgrade it as I thought I was a little tough on atmosphere. The food is really good and the coffee very decent,which is important to me.I've found coffee in Tasmania is generally unacceptable,this place is good. Good service.

Had scones here for afternoon tea and they were absolutely delicious, so light. Would return here for them. Prompt and very friendly service. Beautiful views over Stanley.

Sally O, Manager at Touchwood Cafe, responded to this review

Thank you for your review. People often ask us how we make the scones so light, but Michael won't reveal his secrets! But teamed with our hand picked and home made berry jam and lovely fresh cream, they are delicious and we must admit we do have to sample one each day ourselves! See you next time! More

As a visitor to Tasmania and Stanley I relied on a local friend for a recommendation. What a lovely place in the quaint little settlement of Stanley. It was a busy Sunday but the service was quick and attentive and the food delicious. Very high quality food at a reasonable price. My local flake with dill sauce was divine. Highly... More

We had a gorgeous mail at this great Cafe on our first night in Stanley. Lovely fresh seafood with pasta. Great sauce. We were so full, although we sighted various appetising desserts on the menu, we could't consume another mouthful. So the next best thing, took a couple of them home for the next night. The owners provided us with... More

We had dinner here a couple of days ago and it was a very pleasant experience. We had a booking for 7.30 but the manager managed to get us a table at 6 o'clock!! The views over the bay are beautiful! The service is very good and professional! My husband loved his meal, flake, but mine was a bit disappointing.... More

Had bacon and eggs here and a good pot of tea. Friendly service. The highlight here was the views looking down and out over the bay. It was expensive. $44 for 2 servings of bacon and eggs, 2 teas and 2 coffees.
