It's closed which is sad. I'm not sure why it's closed now. Maybe the rent is too high, but it's sad because it's a great spot by the Huon. No vegan options that we noticed. Good coffee.

About 40 minutes from Hobart located right on the river at the Huonville Bridge this is a great getaway for lunch. Casual dining with great food. Can't beat the local flat head for fish & chips.

Locals know that this is some of the very best ice cream in the area. I was lucky to be introduced to this delightful floating cafe but just such a local. Don't miss it if you're in the area.

Lovely situation and good service - sometimes the opening times are difficult to discern but if you can get in, it is well worth the visit.
