Not a fan of this place. Ordered a couple of coffees, took almost 30 mins and the. Came out cold and not very nice. Staff weren’t overly friendly either which is never good.

After many enjoyable years at this cafe, regrettably the owner has been forced to close. Sadly missed by many in Portland; the art work, the adventureous food and local wines.

It's a great location to go for a cuppa, or a meal, in the CBD of Portland. The service is always friendly, and welcoming. There are different rooms to choose from, so you can be in a bigger room or a smaller room depending on...More

We were tempted by a sign that promised fresh scones, so we stopped by for lunch, coffee and a scone. The food was great, the coffee and scones warm and delicious. The tea tree gallery is certainly unique - it's in a regular house and...More

We were lured in by the Devonshire tea sign. When you enter it's a bit confusing, there is no clear direction to the counter. You wander in and look in each room at people seated at tables. As we did this a young man saw...More

This was a delicious little getaway while I was in Portland for a week or two doing some work. The staff were so friendly and everything I ordered was just divine! Can't wait to pop in next time I'm down that way!

This is a cafe combined with an art gallery, shopfront for local artists and swcond hand book shop. The food is simple but well prepared with a huge range of teas. The art is reasonably priced and good quality second handbooks very cheap. Lovely setting as it is a converted old house so each room is a themed sitting area for the cafe.
