This delightful little cafe surprises with its absolutely exquisite food. The chef is top quality and every dish we have had there has been superb. Today was no exception and I can honestly say the seafood chowder was the best I have ever eaten, it gives the chowder sold at San Fransisco pier a run for its money. So much... More

The Torchwood Cafe is food with a view. We had morning tea and the bluebery muffin was incredible. The cappuccino was great too and the staff were extremely friendly. Will be back again.

Enjoyed a great lunch. Very fresh food & creative with friendly staff. Kindly made a special salad & chicken dish for my daughter in law without any fuss. The Scollop pie was delicious. Thank you.

We had a very nice lunch at the touchwood cafe; the food was fresh and delicious, the soup of the day was really nice and very filling . The the seafood chowder was absolutely a stand out; some of the nicest seafood I've had. 10 out of 10 for lunch with a lovely view in a pretty restaurant

Had coffee and cake here after lunch elsewhere in Stanley. The coffee was fantastic, the chocolate cake was divine, and the service was friendly and fast. There was a small lip to the entrance doorway, but otherwise wheelchair access was good. An accessible toilet is in the outside courtyard.

Browsing the gift shop and making a purchase or two we decided on a coffee and morning tea. It was fabulous. (Check out the photo) friendly staff, great view and the food and coffee were the best. Highly recommended.

Great little cafe; we had several meals here whilst we were visiting and the food, friendly staff and the Genovese coffee were all amazing! For those after a serious caffeine hit like I was after a big effort climbing the nut, the BUCKET sized coffee really hit the spot 👍

Thank Ben A
