“Top spot on the Tamar”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 7, 2013

I recently discovered this great little cafe just outside Launceston. Beautiful location with magnificent views, friendly staff, lovely food, and piping hot coffee. Comfy renovated interior with all sorts of extras like knee rugs and antique books. On a warm afternoon, we enjoyed an outdoor table which offered 180 degree river views, and there was very little traffic to spoil the scenery. Colourful gardens next door. Shade to park in was welcome too. Ilk is my new favourite place to eat.

“What a find”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2013

We stumbled across this delightful spot, welcomed by lovely ladies. The meals, service, location all a big surprise. A little treasure, not fancy on the outside but inside is full of homemade goodies. Perfect for family, friends or just the two of you. With a view too. So lovely. Thank you Ilk.

One of our favourite places for breakfast. Chef/Owner Sam does a great job. We are always well taken care of, the service is caring and professional and the food is wonderful.

“Ilk”

This place is alright, food and drink are OK. There is nothing special except the location which is on the river.

“Good food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 19, 2012

The food here was absolutely delicious and the menu is superb. The waitress was a bit stressed to the points of being a bit rude and unfriendly. But the owner/chef made up for it by being delightful. Lovely spot. The only cafe around there and I will be back for sure.
