Just got a takeaway coffee here on te way out of town. Probably the best coffee I had in 6 days in Tasmania. Looked like it would be a good option in Swansea. Nice decor and a good looking menu.

We just happened to stumble across this cafe for breakfast on the way to Coles Bay. What a wonderful find and if we were locals we would certainly make it a favourite haunt. The gallery and local art add to the ambience.We had the paninis- both chicken and bacon/egg and they were delicious and very filling. Also very reasonably priced.... More

A nice place for breakfast served from morning through the afternoon. Closed on Monday. Friendly staff and pleasant seating. Food well prepared and coffee served hot. Charming little corner.

This was a recommendation so we were keen to try it but came away very disappointed. The cafe is part of a gallery and there are some lovely pieces to browse whilst waiting.....waiting...The orders were taken but only 2 of the drinks arrived and nothing else. After telling one of the staff one item of food arrived...this continued until we... More

Only here for coffee. Great range of t2 teas. I had lemongrass ginger. They others thought the long black and skinny latte were very good. The gallery made the place more interesting and the toilets were clean.

Tasty dips, friendly service. Not crowded when I was there and there seemed to be a few happy regulars who were getting a nice welcome from staff members

A very funky cafe. A great little spot for our family, a place to relax and enjoy some very good food. We ordered coffee as well as food, the only drawback was that they forgot the coffee and had to be reminded. Hopefully an innocent mistake.

We were quite happy to stop in here for a late breaky and a view of the art gallery. Breakfast was simple, but lovely. Art was amazing. Great concept and good stop on the way to Hobart.

Good coffee, terrible terrible service. Lady serving did not even look at us when we ordered, and when she took our plates we said thank you and she just huffed. Do not waste your time.

We arrived here after the kitchen had closed but were very pleased to be offered some lunch regardless. We both had soup - mine a moroccan spinach soup and my husbands a sweet potato and coconut soup. Very fresh, obviously home made. We were pleased to fall upon Onyx - it seemed to be one of the only places open... More
