Description: The Dunalley Waterfront Cafe offers something for everyone. Morning or afternoon tea, breakfast, lunch, cheese board and wine... Pretty much everything is local and prepared from scratch on the premises. The kids are well looked after, the view makes you say "wow" and the cafe acts as a gallery and cellar door for Bream Creek Vineyard as well. Oh yeah...great coffee too

This is one of the most majestic coffee spots you would find in the world. If you don't stop here you are missing a real treat. JRR April 13

Dun alley has suffered terribly in the recent bush fires. The dark wooden barn-like building at the waters edge is surrounded on the landward side by wrecked homes. How it survived must be quite a story. Don't be deceived by the exterior. Through the door is delightful modern cafe with good coffee and excellent food, looking out over the waters sailed by Abel Tasman nearly 400 years ago. There are also the works of a local artist with some original, if highly colourful, ideas. This is a great place to chill out for an hour or two, and it apparently does dinner too.

This a wonderful cafe. We only stopped for coffee and some almond shortbread which was still on the baking tray, cooling. The cafe is spacious with a view of the water, the staff were friendly, the coffee was excellent and there is a gallery of locally made items for sale.
We will stop for lunch next time.

At the Waterfront Cafe and Gallery, Dunalley, the view was stupendous, the coffee was good and the big breakfast was magnificent! The owner also gave us directions to some of her favourite spots on the Tasman Peninsula.
It's good to hear that this cafe survived the terrible bushfire. So when you are in Tasmania, please eat here and help to support Dunalley's regeneration.
Just down the road is the Tasman Monument, describing how Abel Tasman discovered Tasmania and managed not to find Australia.

Very good quick visit for a coffee, we were made very welcome. Service and product were very good, shame their business has been affected by the forest fires.
