We lunched here on a glorious day and had a table overlooking the surrounding area. the lunch we chose was a shared platter of cheeses, dips, meat etc and was excellent. fresh food and local cheeses were served by very friendly staff. good value price wise.

Ate here two mornings in a row. Great service, delicious food, nice atmosphere, generous servings, good location.

My wife and I were following the Blackall Range tourist route when we drove through Montville intending to leave visiting this town for another day. However, the building that houses Poets Café caught our attention so we stopped for afternoon tea. Later we wished that we hadn’t.

We ordered scones (with jam and cream) and a big pot of Earl Grey tea. Our first surprise was when the tea arrived with ceramic coffee cups, not china teacups. They even had the logo of an Italian coffee brand on the side. Does this matter? I think that it does, especially when taking tea in a Victorian style pavilion. Why spoil the experience with poor crockery?

We were more surprised to see that the tea brand had a French name (do the French even drink tea?) and then that the Earl Grey had lost almost all of its characteristic bergamot flavor. The accompanying scones were nothing special and frankly a little on the small size.

All of which is very disappointing. If at some point we do go back to Montville we certainly won’t be visiting the Poets Café.

Wonderful venue and good service but the coffee had a real burnt flavour to it. Perhaps the coffee machines need a bit more love and care

We had a coffee and beer , chips and custard slice. The view was amazing and the staff very attentive. The quality of the food was great. I can't comment on the lunches however. We found it a bit pricey but I did enjoy it.
