“Excellent food but the service was a bit slow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 28, 2014

The food was excellent - smoked salmon omelet and a big (very big) breakfast. It was cosy out of the rain but the wait for our meals was a bit too long.

“Worth visiting this little gem.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

While doing the historic walk in the beautiful village of Stanley, we came upon this lovely little eatery. On entering, we were greeted with a very warm welcome by the assistant. She worked enthusiastically while attending to everyones needs. I had the delicious pumpkin soup in cob loaf and my partner had the curried scallop pie. Both very enjoyable. I then topped the meal off with a very liberal serve of a Tasmanian made ice-cream. My choice of macadamia was amazing, possibly one of the best I've tasted. Absolutely delicious!!!! As we were leaving, we passed other satisfied guests devouring their favourite flavour before departing from this special part of Tasmania.

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2014

Pleasant spot for lunch. The staff were friendly and helpful. Pumpkin soup was really yummy and my son thought their steak burger was great too! Would eat there again when next in Stanley.

“Scones or Rockcakes?”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 26, 2014

Was there last week for afternoon tea, my scones came out as brown as biscuits and as flat as pikelets. No strawberry jam, in its place a strange orange paste which I think was meant to be apricot?.Not even fresh cream to redeem itself, but fake out of the can stuff. My Husband waited 20minutes for a toasted sandwich , which he said was good.2 scones $6, cup of Tea nearly $4- not good when you dont get quality fresh food.Dont bother wasting your money here!
