Great place for lunch with a group of 10. Found came out on time and correct. Portion sizes appropriate for lunch. Loved the protein shake and enjoyed the coffee and cake for desert! Will definitely be back as menu varied enough!

We had coffees and cakes and it was great. The cakes were presented nicely and had the best vanilla ice cream on the side! Service was quick and nice and the prices were good. Really happy overall!

Not much to look at from the street, but who cares when the food and coffee is this good! Tried the lunch menu on our first visit, and wife and I came back the next morning for breakfast. Food, coffee and service was consistently great and fairly priced. Best coffee I've had on my trip around Tassie. Served strong and... More

Had the most delicious fluffy and soft scrambled eggs on toast for Brekky recently whilst on the Black Dog Ride around Tasmania. Sited directly opposite Bass Strait, one can savour brekky and a coffee while scanning the seas and horizon from the front of the Cafe. Added bonus of Cabin style accommodation right nehind the Cafe, and a brisk 3k... More

An excellent menu with a good variety of dishes. The food was delightful, reasonably priced, the service was excellent, the staff were very pleasant and accommodating. The desserts were to die for and all this to be enjoyed whilst taking in the view of the ocean.

Hubby and I just had a sensational breakfast at Bruce's! I had the smoked salmon omelette and hubby had the Mexican omelette. Both were delicious - hubby said it was the best omelette he's ever had! Coffee was great, friendly staff, lovely view out to the water. Great find!

The perfectly cooked calamari served with an asian style salad was simply a delicious choice. My companions enjoyed the soup (pumpkin and sweet potato) and a chorizo salad (special). Whilst paying our bill, the cakes and slices on display looked so yummy we ordered lemon slice and carrot cake to takeaway. It was a great decision! Bruce's is warm and... More

My wife and I frequently stop here for lunch and a coffee, or a smoothie, or a sweet, or for breakfast. The cafe is expertly run and the menu has a diverse range of tasty eating options. The coffee is quite good and the food is outstanding, there is always plenty of flavour to the meals and they are served... More
