Had a toastie sandwich with cheese onion and pineapple followed by the carrot cake. My usual mocha. A couple of nice schoolboys learning the ropes served us.

The service here is very friendly and there's a generous selection of cakes and treats on offer. Stopping in for morning or afternoon tea plus a browse through the souvenirs makes for a welcome break on arrival in Glenorchy. Recommended.

The coffee was great for warming from the cold, could have done with a stir of the chocolate. Nice warm and welcoming with many delish options to compliment the coffee and atmosphere. A tad pricey on the souvenir side otherwise a great little coffee spot.More
