Warm and friendly service. Loved the homemade muffins. They do well for a hole in the wall style coffee outlet. The prices are reasonable too. Within easy walk of everywhere in the main stret. Very popular in summer.

Ordered a flat white and really enjoyed the coffee, enough to come back for another round a few hours later! And don't leave without treating yourself to one of the baked goods on offer--we tried the date and ricotta muffin, gluten-free orange cake, and the sourdough bread (available later in the afternoon) and all were fantastic. The cake is homemade... More

This little hole in the wall serves incredible coffee. The barista really knows his stuff as far as coffee making. I Strongly recommend stopping here for a morning or lunchtime pick me up. Closes at 2pm.

And Marika was lovely. I was just a bit disappointed with the lack of milk selection - however I do understand that almond milk is not yet a widely... More

I really wish for a decent coffee on the coast! The best coffee I have had so far is at the Bank Teahouse in St. Mary's . Anyone that knows coffee, knows that it is the skill of the barista more than the coffee itself!

This coffee shop is awesome. The owner is friendly and the service is outstanding. Coffee is expertly prepared and presented beautifully. Daily muffins are awesome and the cakes and biscuits are outstanding. I cannot recommend this establishment more highly.

Excellent coffee (ritual, locally roasted in Tas). With a great temperature and silky latte. A literal hole in the wall on the Main Street. A good experience, will be a definite morning stop when in town.

What a lovely find on our travels. Lovely service and a great latte. Chai could be improved with a better blend. A most stop for those needing a coffee hit!

We actually went to buy coffee from another cafe in town and the state of their machine was discusting so we walked out and accross the road, this is a great little set up buy a coffee and... More
