Huge range of yummy bakery goods, great bread and interesting museum. Staff all friendly and my only dislike was the claw machine thingy… I wish that wasn't there to get my kids nagging for money for more rubbish.

Had dinner here with the family as we travelled around Tasmania. Service was great, food was wholesome, and we even came back for breakfast the next morning at the bakery.

Went for dinner during an overnight stay after a local recommendation. An intetesting building whos size seems to have been built to accommodate a flucuating seasonal holiday town. The dining area is basic bistro but the menu comprehensive. My husbands choice of oyster Kilpatrick was sensational but my oversize steak was flavourless though cooked perfectly. In hindsight I should have... More

Dined here for lunch when recently visiting Tasmania and had excellent meals. My husband had a marinated char grilled steak which he said was one of the best he had ever eaten, absolutely melt in the mouth. I had lamb shanks where the meat just fell off the bone. Loved every mouthful, wished we were staying longer to eat our... More

Lovely coffee and we finally found the infamous scallop pie at this venue. Delicious!!! Would recommend this place for breakfast and dinner. Lovely Tasmanian produce on offer and reasonably priced.

We bought a variety of slices, breads and pastries. They were excellent. This is a very busy place with friendly staff.

Fair choice on menu. Would have liked thicker slices of toast, butter not available, only margarine. Jam from a packet. Would have liked better quality. Coffee good. Asked for extra hot and this was done. Staff friendly.

We left our accommodation in search of some breakfast, we notice the Bakery on our way into the town the night before. On entering the Bakery, we were punctually greeted, and with a Smile Too. The array of food available including a GREAT breakfast MENU- was amazing, so many choices on what we could have had, The Croissant with Tomato... More

The food and coffee are always good here - though it is often busy and a bit noisy. A great pit-stop and nice, clean toilets.
