“If you want brownies....”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2013

It's hard to beat Pat, Marie and Island Plates. If you want healthy, homemade, fresh food this is the place. The smoothies are great, the chicken curry, pita pizzas and salad, lemon squares are excellent but must take second place to Pat's brownies! Totally amazing... chocolatey, fudgey, moist and FRESH but if you want to step it up a notch ask Pat when she will be making her RUM brownies and then make sure you are there when the come out of the oven.... I have never tasted a brownie so good! Pat even made us up a lunch for the plane rather than eat airport/airplane food. Thank you Pat and Marie. We always looked forward to visiting you guys over the two months we were there and are already booking our return for next winter and your place will be one of our first stops... Thanks again!

Hello Carrot Cupcake Lady and Brownie Guy,

Great to hear from you and thank you for taking the time to write us a review. We enjoyed having you as our guests and I'm already thinking of an additional brownie recipe for your next return. We really appreciate you both and look forward to swapping stories in the not too distant future.

Until then, do take care

Marie, Pat and the rest of the Island Plates Team.

“Freshly Prepared Food, Friendly Service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 1, 2013

Breakfast at Island Plates is a simple affair. Everything is freshly prepared so plan a leisurely visit. The smoothies are especially good.

Service is excellent and very friendly. We felt that every member of the Island Plates team came to our table to say hello and ensure we were satisfied with our experience - which we were.

The menu includes a number of Gluten-Free options.

“Quality Food, Heavenly Service”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

We came across Island Plates by accident and kept coming back for the food, the smoothies, and the warm, friendly service. Breakfast, lunch, and coffee breaks were terrific. We regretted that they were only open one night (Thurs?) for dinner because we would have been there for dinners too. Pat and Marie were simply the best; nothing was too much trouble for them. Many other restaurant owners could learn from them. This will be our first stop on our next visit!

Ideal for a cool drink and a light lunch. The staff will accomodate all your needs and make sure you have a pleasant lunch. Sit out in the shade, have the cockerals crowing around the garden, enjoy the warm
