The sweet I had was delicious as well , so many dishes I wanted to try but could only... More

We came here in the afternoon for drinks and scones after walking up the Nut. The staff are very friendly, the food is great and very reasonably priced. We were so impressed, we came back for dinner. The menu is simple, but again, very reasonably priced with good food and generous servings. My partner had Moroccan chicken and I had... More

The location is very central on the main street and the view is great. The atmosphere is very cosy and comfortable and the staff were extremely friendly. The food... More

Touchwood café is more than just a café. It sits in the middle of the main street in Stanley, a stunning space overlooking Tatlows beach and the Green Hills. The food served is locally grown and is first class. Soups, snacks, main courses, delicious cakes and scones... all very tempting and served by friendly delightful staff. Dinner is also a... More

Service was friendly and prompt. Food was delicious and priced reasonably. If the chicken pate was absolutely delectable the desserts were even better. If you can only manage 2 courses skip entree the desserts are worth waiting for!

We popped into this delightful little cafe in the main street in Stanley by accident really. We were browsing in the lovely gift shop at the front of the premises and suddenly we were in the cafe. A friendly greeting was all that was needed and we were sitting in the window overlooking the bay ordering before we knew it.... More

The food here was good, pub quality. The beef cheek was divine however the scallops were lacking somewhat. Price was a little excessive given the quality but otherwise an ok meal

After a week of travelling this little place was the star of the show. The people are lovely and the dining area is intimate but airy. The two chicken dishes we had (fillet and Moroccan) we're just delightful and by far the best meal we have had since leaving home. Well done guys. Will be back for morning tea!

Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Tell them your dietary requirements and then relax: They know what they're doing. Easily the best consistent coffee in Circular Head. Famous amongst the locals as the place for breakfast and lunch but the weekend dinners are worth a visit. The duck a specialty. Great range of cakes (GF) and use of seasonal local... More

Small cafe with amazing views of Stanley and surrounds. Friendly service, good strong coffee and one of the best bacon and scrambled eggs I have had. Simple but very well done.
