We were searching for a coffee late afternoon and came across Touchwood cafe. Although it was nearly closing time we were cheerfully directed to a table with a lovely view over Stanley to the beach. The coffee was great and we wished we had been staying on in Stanley to try the dinner menu.

We stopped in here for lunch today as a family of 4. Staff seemed disinterested and lacked any warmth, and the lunch menu was limited and very expensive. The cheapest sandwich was a chicken foccacia for $17.90!! We opted for a savoury muffin ($8.90) but this had run out, as it seemed was anything else on the menu under $15.... More

We kept coming back. For coffee. And for the view and nice feel of the place and the very pleasant people who run it. We also had an enjoyable evening meal but it is more about the coffee. Excellent.

Lovely views and cosy atmosphere and friendly staff - but thought $19.50 for a small serve of not overly flavoured Asian chicken salad was a bit much. Good coffee though 😊

We came twice to this café, once for dinner and once for morning tea. Tucked at the back of a shop that sells quality crafts this smallish café produces excellent standard attractive cuisine with good variety in a cosy and friendly atmosphere.

Yes, they have rice! We loved our seafood options, maybe Pernod scallops were a tiny bit too creamy? Service was lovely.

This is definitely "our sort of place", the kind where we'd hang out if we lived in the area. Friendly service, great food, wonderful views, comfortable atmosphere - all part of the package so lovingly and passionately shared at Touchwood. We took TA advice and booked ahead, thus securing an early sitting, which suited us and avoided the disappointment we... More

small cosy restaurant with surround windows to catch the view and the sunset. Great food, warm and friendly staff, nice ambience. Even if you think it would be overkill to have the dessert as well, just do it!

We watched the sunset as we dined. Our prawn dishes were spectacular with the freshest of prawns. We shared a dessert from the specials board and it was a Wow! Orange sorbet in a chocolate cup topped with a little chocolate cup filled with liqueur! Delightful! It was difficult to choose a dessert from the yummy menu! Definitely want to... More
