“Faultless!”
Reviewed March 17, 2013 via mobile

A cute little cafe 20 minutes out of launceston. The view is stunning and directly facing the water, the staff were extremely accommodating and were happy to tell us about places to visit. I had the apricot and pear muffin which was to die for and my wife had the bacon and egg sandwich which came with tomato relish and was an absolute winner. At first glance the menu doesn't look extensive, but it doesn't need to be as everything on it is done to perfection.

“An absolute delight from start to finish and quite possibly the best breakfast i have ever had!!!”
Reviewed March 16, 2013 via mobile

After ready the glowing reviews for Ilk Cafe we decided to give it a go for breakfast and it really lived up to our expectations!!!

The food was faultless- we had the bacon and egg sandwich & the muffin of the day. I had the dark hot chocolate which was outstanding & my husband's coffee hit the mark as well. Our food came packed with flavour and was absolutely delicious!!! And the best part was getting to it eat our meal with a dazzling view of the lake.

The staff were friendly & the service speedy. I could not say enough good things about this place. A must visit!!!

“Great refresments”
Reviewed February 17, 2013

Have visited Ilk on four separate occasions while out for drives. Usually just have a drink and cake or a muffin. Muffins/cakes are always delicious. Coffee is good.

Owner is helpful and friendly as is the staff.

“Great food and friendly service - well worth a return isit”
Reviewed February 2, 2013

Our third time here - and again we haven't been disappointed. The coffee and muffins we were planning to have became coffee and lunch once we checked out the menu: smoked chicken parcel with quinoa salad and toasted pita with ham, tomato, cheese and same salad. Both excellent. If you don't want to be bothered heading into Launceston then this is the place to go. But be warned, it's very busy on the weekends so book in advance.

“Top spot on the Tamar”
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.
