Description: Email: info@widowtwankeys.com.au Telephone + 61 3 5345 3426. Please note that for the first Clunes, Victoria restaurant listing that I recently requested (O'Hara's@Clunes), TA staff incorrectly located it in the Australian state of New South Wales (NSW) when in fact both O'Hara's and the cafe above are in then historic first Victorian town where gold was discovered in about 1854. Many thanks for your ongoing commitment to accuracy.

It is a lovely mixture of lolly shop, coffee/tea stop, simple well done food and a place to smile. It sits in a perfect spot between an interesting photographer and a very appealing wine bar on the main street. Of course, you could try to avoid buying some of those very naughty lollies but naughtiness is us and we pretended... More

We were in Clunes visiting the historical sites and decided on a coffee. The staff were friendly, the coffee was hot and the banana bread was toasted well. My partner had a coffee and a pastie and said he would have liked his pastie a bit hotter. But happily ate it. There is a sweet shop next door which stocks... More

We take our elderly to the Widow's every time we visit Clunes. Although the bakery is also good, finding it open is so hit and miss, whereas we can always rely on Widow Twankey's. The staff are so friendly and helpful (and patient with the folk) and the coffee and food are delicious. Love the home made pastries and cakes.... More

While visiting the sites and history of Clunes, we decided to stop here for afternoon tea. We had a pot of tea, coffee, cake and biscuits. The drinks were great and our side orders were fresh and tasty. They have a range of other pastries, salads and drinks. There is seating indoors, out front and in the back garden also.... More

This place will bring back childhood memories to many. The lolly shop has so many old fashiond sweets for sale you hardly know were to start. The cafe has an extensive choice of snacks and drinks at a very reasonable price and staff were quick and pleasant. A nice place to sit and watch the world go by

With friends and spending an afternoon in Clunes. Went for lunch at Widow twanky's. Such a lovely place to enjoy a meal. Sat outside in the courtyard which was just delightful. Great food and friendly service and one must visit the sweet shop in there...yum Will defiantly return on our next trip to Central Victoria

Widow twankies has great coffee but really it's all about the Lollies that are on offer from every corner if the world. The service is friendly and I always find a new lolly to try.

The coffee is great; food tasty and the service is speedy. But the best part about Widow Twankey's Cafe is sitting out the front and talking to the locals. Eating in the historic main street, Fraser Street is a real experience and made even better with quality coffee and delicious food from Widow Twankey's Cafe.
