We just love this cafe and that it' s part of our cycle around the gorgeous Silver leaves with our kids. The scones are just perfect, coffee and savoury food equally good. Sit inside in this pretty cafe, in the sun out the front, or in the pretty shady rear garden. It's a gem we love it and staff always lovely and warm

We have enjoyed fish and chips on a Friday night complete with great music. Esp enjoy Alan on the guitar. We have eaten on a Saturday night when there is a more extensive menu.....yum!!
Morning tea in the courtyard is delightful.

We stumbled across this one on a long beach walk and enjoyed a great brunch with good coffee and wonderful friendly service. Menu had so many favourites and surprises it was hard to chose which only means we'll have to come back for more.

The evenings they do here sound great too. We will definitely try and get to one of those next time we're on the island.

We checked TripAdvisor which told us the Silverleaves general Store was closed Friday night but we went anyway not believing it for Friday. We ended up having very nice meal of fish and chips and a superb Shiraz. All that left just enough room for a very tasty desert. Love the atmosphere, got to wear my Sunday trakies (very hole'y) out for dinner and not feel out of place.

Beef pie must be the best I've ever eaten (the puff pastry is stunning)
Ask which cakes the staff recommend before ordering - they will tell you which was baked that morning and it will be delicious regardless of type
Coffee is not melbourne-standard, but better than anywhere else on the island
The food is simple and delicious, with high quality ingredients. If you want to feel important and fancy, stay in Cowes. If, on the other hand, you want a relaxed experience with high quality food in a lovely courtyard, this is the place for you.
