Appears to have new owner, and has been renamed. Very basic fare. I'd look elsewhere for breakfast. Surprised there wasn't more on offer on Flinders Island. We were led to believe it was pretty special, but King Island offered more.

The eggs were cooked hard and judging by the sounds from the kitchen that was because they were cooked in the microwave. A little decoration on the plate would be nice. The coffee was acceptable.

Don't waste your time (snooze), we waited 45 minutes for breakfast. The new owner had no idea how to cook, or no experience with customer service. The eggs were hard and everything was over cooked. Just an all round awful experience.

I enjoyed an espresso here and a homemade sausage roll. This is a wonderful Local little shop with a great warm and friendly atmosphere.

Our first stop after flying into Flinders. Great coffee and a variety of sweet and savoury treats. Well worth visiting.

Not your typical bakery in terms of the food fare. Who would have thought wallaby pies but the local wallaby of which there are many thousands, has been eaten by the locals forever....and for good reason too. Friendly people as well

Two meals , one evening and one picnic lunch were prepared for our group of 18 plus locals. An amazing $15 per head was charged for a buffet style meal catering for all food types. Three mains, three salads, bread and rice were on the table. It was an amazing gourmet experience. The lunch was similarly well prepared with a... More

We enjoyed a good coffee at Freckles Cafe in Whitemark. So pleased to see they had de-cafe, which the other brand new, just opened place didn't have. The gluten free chocolate cake was fabulous - moist & rich and satisfying. The interesting (?) thing was that one lot of raisin toast was almost cremated. Why would you serve up burned... More

Went for lunch and after waiting 45 minutes we left. Our order was lost somewhere. no real apology. Went elsewhere. Coffee was average. The dining area is nicely decorated though and sitting area outside is lovely.
