“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

We were visiting Bruny Island for mothers day and stopped in for a light meal. What a great surprise amazing food, fantastic atmosphere, great views and (Michael the owner) took the kids up to see and pat the horse. The locals were very friendly and welcoming. Thank you Fiona and Michael for making our day so memorable.

“Surprising little cafe on the way to Adventure Bay”
Reviewed May 8, 2014

We took the early ferry to Bruny and spent some time on the Neck Game Reserve before hitting the Adventure Bay for the cruise. There were still some time so we stopped by the Hothouse cafe for breakfast. Pancakes and Scones were amazing and the portion is LARGE. Me and my hubby couldn't finish even 2/3 of it...

Amazing environment and if you have time, do drop by for brekkie! :)

“Come eat at hothouse”
Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

Don't be alarmed by the high prices. Their servings are massive! If it's a sunny day, go eat at the wooden tables out in lawn. Also check out for wild bunnies hoppin around.

“Pancakes were excellent”
Reviewed April 26, 2014 via mobile

I had the pancake and it so yummy. My friends were jealous. Raspberry sauce sour and balanced perfectly with the icecream. My friends enjoyed the scones the tart jam balanced with sugary crunchy and ample cream. There were heaps of people there and they served us quickly - well done.

“Friendly service, nice fresh food”
Reviewed March 20, 2014 via mobile

I went for a simple lunch but the cake and dev tea menu was mouthwatering. My egg and bacon pie was delicious with tasty chips and a very fresh, basic salad. Just what I needed. Next time I will go back for morning or afternoon tea. Dress warm if the day is cool as the cafe is actually a hothouse! Just a frame covered with heavy plastic. They do have outdoor heaters but warm clothes would also help.
