Has been going for quite a few years and has had three or four different proprietors, but has always had an interesting menu. The present owner and chef, Isobel Sykes, is a young woman who has a good training and some experience under her belt. Her menus are inspired; although a good mixture of vegan, vegetarian and gluten free they... More

There has been a welcome change in the RVL. It feels welcoming even on the most busy days. If I want to chat to friends over good coffee & truly mouth watering cakes, this is where I come.

Visited for lunch with friends and would recommend returning. Delicious vegetarian options on the menu, with a great selection of local ciders, beers and wines. Also, the decor is vintage with an eclectic elegance and there are some actual velvet lounges! Tip: if you're into something sweet at the end of the meal-share the apple crumble-decadent layers of crumble and... More

Such a beautiful cafe, a very relaxing atmosphere... waitresses are friendly and efficient. Large fireplace with comfy sofas. I would love to see a roaring blaze in winter. We had a bowl of vegetarian nachos and pot of tea for two.. We got 4 cups out of the teapot and the tea was the nicest I've had in a long... More

Stopped in for breakfast before a big drive. Greeted promptly by friendly staff and sat outside in the sunny garden bit. My veggie breakfast was big and delicious (homemade baked beans and the mushrooms were particular highlights) and we didn't have to wait too long either, my partner had vegan Nutella on toast which was really good too. Friendly staff,... More

We visited the restaurant for lunch. Greeted promptly and seated by friendly waitress. We were shown a piece of paper with a few breakfast and lunch options. I couldn't believe that the list was all that was served - extremely limited. I did check at the counter and it seemed that there were no sandwich options, no quiches and no... More

Went to the friday night pizza and music. The four of us ordered a pizza each and none of us could eat half of it even though we waited an hour and a half for our order. We went home and cooked scrambled eggs. It wasn't pizza as we know it. The base was more like cake and not cooked.... More

We had last eaten here in 2013 and had really enjoyed the food. We were passing through on our way back to Hobart and decided to pop in for breakfast. We had the brown rice porridge, it was great with soft creamy rice, sweet strawberries, rhubarb, raspberries and yoghurt. Then some sourdough toast with homemade marmalade - all excellent. Good...
