We only went in for a coffee but the place looked so nice we stayed for lunch!

This is a café and bric-a-brac shop all in one and has a brilliant ambiance. The food was really good. They serve breakfast till 12 noon, overlapping with the lunch menu. The breakfasts we had at noon were great and very generous serves and the lunch plates that we could see were equally generous. The place was full on a Wednesday at the end of winter which indicates a good reputation and we can concur with that.

We stopped in for breakfast and were pleasantly surprised with a great menu that had plenty to choose from and at very reasonable prices. If you're in town for the bay of fires put this place on your list to visit for brekky!

Best coffee I've had since our trip around Tasmania started. We had cheese scone - which was divine. My son also had a caramel slice which was good.
The place also is a shop of curiosities selling everything from old china, fabrics, smoking pipes etc. really enjoyed being here and will be grabbing a takeaway coffee on way out of town in the morning

Amazing food. I had Green Eggs which was delicious. The coffees though were mediocre according to my friends and the chai latte that I had was bland.
