“Lunch at The Purple Possum”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

This is a great place for a healthy lunch and where you can stock up on your organic supplies. They have a wonderful supply of health food products. The staff are friendly and welcoming, the service is also great. This is a gem in a small town and should not be missed if you are on the east coast of Tasmania.

Delightful place, full of the healthiest foods. Lunch was delicious and the staff were extremely accommodating to cater for my wife's food allergies.

“Friendly and delightful find”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Gorgeous cafe with wonderful treats, hearty meals, drinks and whole food groceries. The staff are warm and welcoming, and ingredients are picked right from the cafe garden. The salad alone was one of the tastiest things I've eaten in Tasmania. Vegans and vegetarians are very well looked after on the menu.

“Delightful, delicious retreat”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 27, 2013

Very friendly and welcoming cafe with assorted delicious food, gifts etc. Affordable home/locally made food (portions of my salad were picked fresh from the vege patch/courtyard at the rear of the cafe). Vegan friendly. I'd reccommend the organic madras vegan pie and salad. Do stop by!

“Friendly & delicious food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 25, 2013

Friendly service, delicious gluten free options for breakfast & lunch. I would definitely recommend the Purple Possum even if it means a detour. They also have a variety of gifts such as jewellery, books & gourmet foods. SBoyer
