Sign on the street stating dinner from 18:00. I walk in with my family at 16:00 for a bite as an afternoon snack. I peruse the dinner menu while I am there and was greeted with a stern " You can't have that now, that's for dinner" .... No crap ! ... that's why it's the dinner menu !!! Proceed... More

Thank you for your account of your brief experience at Touchwood Cafe. We go to great lengths to make all visitors welcome and when I spoke with your family, I was trying to let you know that, due to it being late in the afternoon, our lunch menu on the blackboard was not available. I wanted to ensure that you... More

We called in for coffee and the range of cakes was so tempting, we succumbed - and were not disappointed. So we went back for dinner and again had a wonderful meal with absolutely no criticisms at all. Staff were lovely and gave us the table we had had at lunchtime because we asked for it again.

What a lovely review! I know I am biased, but I also think our food is exceptional! Michael has decades of experience as a chef and I believe it shines through - especially with the help of delicious, fresh Tassie produce! We hope to see you again and thank you for your comments! :-)) More

The restaurant was the best, great breakfast, great lunches, staff are helpful and very friendly. Very accommodating with special dietary requirements, amazing gluten free cakes all made on the premises, and wonderful views of the ocean. They were very busy every time we went there. It had it all.

Thanks for your lovely comments! We always try to have at least two gluten free cakes on the menu and many of our dishes are gluten free as they are prepared fresh to order by Michael and Meaghan. And we can't claim credit for the bay views, but they are always spectacular and ever-changing! More

We were in Stanley for one night and visited this cafe three times. Once for lunch, once for a coffee and a third time after dinner for dessert. It is a lovely little cafe with good food and the best coffee I had in Stanley. Friendly service and a nice view out the window of Stanley. The food was delicious... More

Again, tried on recommendation and were not disappointed. Coffee made to order and came back in the afternoon to try their array of home baked cakes. Delicious, with gluten free options available. Staff very friendly and views stunning.

Tucked just off the main street behind a craft/gift shop of the same name, Touchwood is a great find. My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our meals (Roast Duck and Chicken Filet). The staff are attentive, friendly and helpful; our waitress even showed us photos on her mobile phone of some desserts she had particularly enjoyed. I reserved a table... More

Set in a picturesque alleyway, this gem lived up to a local recommendation. Try the lamb burger - yum! And the gallery/gift shop next door is interesting.
