Description: Ingleside Bakery Cafe is a licensed cafe and bakery situated in a classically designed former Council Chamber built in 1867 in the beautiful Georgian village of Evandale. We produce our own cakes, pies, quiche and bread. The courtyard is a wonderful place to sit beside the famous wall of Pierre de Ronsard roses in spring and summer or beside the roaring log fire during the colder months. We have excellent Australian art for sale and we have a large range of Tasmanian wines, jams, olive oils etc. We provide free wifi and dogs are welcome to sit in the courtyard! The business has been under continuous ownership for the last 27 years. Open every day except public holidays.

We stopped in here for a quick brunch before taking off for home and I'm glad we did. The coffee was good and the food tasty and fresh.We had the usual bacon and eggs which was delicious and filling! We had a wander around the cafe buying some last minute gifts before leaving Tasmania. We adore Evandale as it was where some of our ancestors came from. We visited the cafe/bakery a number of times whilst we were in the area and the food and service was great each time. Love the roses in the garden outside they were beautiful!

We stopped in here for a quick lunch after looking around Evandale and I'm glad we did. The coffee was good and the food tasty and fresh. It was a bit cold and windy to sit outside so we enjoyed the lovely atmosphere of the old council chambers building complete with lovely high ceilings and fire place. But make sure you check out the wonderful wall of roses in the courtyard when they are in bloom - just magnificent and would be a wonderful place to sit when the weather is nice.

ok food - some of it pretty standard bakery grub dressed up as gourmet by putting it on a plate beside some chutney, then multiplying standary cost by 250%. A nice fireplace in a pleasant building, which was great in winter, but the prices and surly staff, plus not very competent service let down the overall effect .

Thank you for your review, sorry for the late response but we have only just become aware that someone had listed our business on Tripadvisor. I am very sad to hear that you felt our staff were surly, as this is most unusual and for this I apologise. We really do not try to dress our food up as "gourmet". It is all made on the premises in our wood fired oven using local ingredients. The pies are made primarily for takeway but sometimes they are chosen to be eaten in the cafe ... therefore we like to plate it up and serve it with relish, for this there are additional costs compared to putting it in a bag.

A stop for a quick lunch...WOW...turned into a not so quick lunch as we relaxed in this great bakery which was once a council office. My BLT with eggs was unbelievable...it was about 6 inches high...& absolutely delicious. Actually I was unable to eat all the bread as the was so much filling. My husband had a pepper pie which he said was full of chunky steak. The best though is the room itself...really high ceilings & little gifts etc to browse amongst while waiting. The young staff were very friendly and keen to help. Unfortunately the 2 older women were a little more abrupt with customers. But it can't be too bad because the place was humming with people...the outside garden area was full but looked a lovely place to sit with a glass or two of wine...yes this bakery is licenced

Thank you very much for your review and your lovely comments. I was concerned to hear that two of the older staff were a little abrupt but that you otherwise really enjoyed your time here. Hopefully you can come back and enjoy sitting in the garden with a good bottle of Tasmanian wine next time!
