Although the food is fantastic, the service is even better!! Nothing is any trouble and the waitresses are friendly, efficient, and have great attention to detail. Lovely quiet spot away from the main street.

A lovely old house converted to a restaurant, creating a nice dining ambiance. We were greeted on the porch. Every part of our meal was good, with good sized portions - the entrees, the main, and the desert. There is a good selection of wines. Our two waitresses were great and friendly.

Just of the main street, this is one of my favourite places in Hanmer. My husband and I first stumbled across the cafe on a cold afternoon in winter. They had the fire on and we were led to a room upstairs with couches and a view - the fire was on and it was so relaxing! We treated ourselves to an amazing chocolate tart (truly devine) and a lemon meringue pie! Just delicious! Another personal favourite of mine is the steak sandwich - good value for money, you get a huge portion! Lastly the staff are some of the friendliest we have met and are always willing to answer any questions you might have - A wonderful experience!

Amazing food and great service in a gorgeous setting. We ate inside because it was a bit windy, but the garden dining looked lovely too.
