“Frequent visitor”
Reviewed August 25, 2012 via mobile

I love Tansy's Continental Cafe. The coffee is great as is the food and the cakes too die for. The staff are very friendly and I often meet girlfriends here for a catch-up and a small light lunch. You are never hassled to leave your table and always made to feel welcome. I don't bother with any of the other 55 cafes in Ringwood unless Tansy's is full!

“LITTLE HIDE AWAY”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

Perfect for those who watch what they eat with gluten free and slimming world meals and cakes. You are made to feel welcomd by the friendly staff. Only down fall is it's cramped - one table too many - and you feel as if you are sat on top of the next table.

Absolutely brilliant find. Tansy and her staff are wonderful. Such a buzz and the food is excellent. All home cooked and fresh. Go every Saturday for our breakfast.

“Friendly staff, home baked cakes, healthy light lunch options”
Reviewed November 28, 2011

For a cosy tea or lunch with friends or family, this little place is popular with locals. Friends coming into town for the market seem to like this as a regular meeting place because of its ambience, breakfast and light lunch options. Home made soup is to be highly recommended.
