Touchwood cafe - super place for lunch

Had a beautiful little lunch for $50!....great value. My wife had garlic prawn fettucine (had over a dozen prawns in it) & I had seafood chowder which was chock full. Great friendly service and with a lovely clear day we had great bay view. Highly recommended if you are ever in Stanley.

Great cakes and all a little different- dishes all cooked on-site. Open all day incl dinner on some nights. Thoughtful, attentive service. Well located next to Touchwood B and B and gift store. Coffee is good also and I am very fussy about coffee.

Went in for coffee but stayed for lunch. The staff are attentive and friendly, the atmosphere wonderful and the food is top quality. It is a great place to linger for a while and enjoy the view of Stanley and the bay.

Thanks for your lovely comments! Touchwood's bay views are very special and also a surprise for many visitors who don't expect such expansive views while enjoying coffee, cake, a glass of wine or a delicious meal. Hope to see you back soon! :-) More

The food is varied with both traditional and more contemporary offerings. The vegetarian range is a bit too limited and unimaginative. However, the desserts and cakes are terrific. The view is good and the prices right. The gallery has some wonderful products of very good quality.

Excellent food, with professional friendly service and very congenial atmosphere. The all round quality in the Touchwood leaves some 'alleged' 5 star restaurants for dead.

On a stormy night this is a lovely warm place to dine. The garlic prawn fettucine is simply excellent. A few more wines by the glass would be good to add to the menu. The staff were very welcoming and efficient.

An excellent breakfast, with poached eggs, bacon, tomatoes and mushrooms, as well as toast. The courtyard garden which the cafe overlooks was a bonus

Had a lovely lunch here. The lamb burger was cooked well as was the delightful fluffy scones with jam and cream. The cafe was full at lunch time. So that's a good sign.

Fantastic food and great service. The duck was spectacular and the steak perfectly cooked. We made room for dessert even though we were very full and we're glad we did - amazing crepes. It's only a small place and was almost full when we were there, so I would think you'd be better to book (they only do dinner on... More

Touchwood had some of the most beautiful and unusual craftwork we had seen in our travels. My friend was from interstate and "bought up big" as she loves our unique Tasmanian crafts. E also ate lunch here and had some excellent soup with prompt and friendly service.
