Schwabs Galley was near the water front and tourist information center. Food and coffee was good; service was quick and efficient.

Thoroughly enjoyed a delicious morning tea at Schwabs Gallery Cafe. We ordered the French vanilla slice, fruit pastry and chocolate donut. All were yummy! Very good coffee also.

The window is full of wonderful cakes and I chose the Toblerone Cheese cake. When I asked the lady how many calories it was she replied "Doesn't matter. When you cut it they all fall out." Delicious and coffe, as you expect in this part of the word, was terrific.

We have a couple of regular cafes when in Williamstown and this is one, good quality coffee and great cakes that are always fresh and a large serving. Staff are great for visitors that want some local knowledge when they have a free moment. Look forward to our next coffee !!
