We dropped in after leaving the Marakoopa caves for a quick coffee and ice creams. The owners were super friendly, the cafe large and well presented, and the quality of the ice cream was superb... what a find! We didn’t try the food, but it...looked good. Drop in if you go to the caves and you won’t be disappointed.More

We stopped by here for something to eat after visiting the caves. There was a good variety of items on the menu. My husband had the German hot dog, which he said was very tasty, while the scones were some of the best I have...ever had. The service here is friendly and the food is homemade and tasty. I also picked up a couple of lovely prints of birds from a local artist at a very reasonable price.More

The best lunch plans we made - old school European hot dogs, great home made soup, coffee and Sarah’s apple jam with some cream on scones is a must have! A nice way to break up the three Mole Creek Cave tours not two minutes...drive.More

We booked the cafe for lunch for a group we were hosting on a trip to Tasmania. The food and atmosphere did not disappoint. The food arrived very promptly and was absolutely delicious, everyone enjoyed it. We had a set menu due to the size...of the group, but everyone loved the hot smoked salmon, and the desert - rhubarb and elderflower cheesecake, was amazing. Would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area.More

The staff at this place were lovely and the scones I had were great too. I would recommend going to the toilet at the Mole Creek Cave centre though because this place just has a portaloo.

Hi Amy, thanks for the kind words. As regards the portaloo, we are situated in Karst (limestone, cave and subterranean river systems) and we have the waste taken away to protect the environment. We hope you understand. Thanks so much for your visit :-)

We had made a random stop at this cafe after our trip to the Marakoopa Cave as our kids were hungry. It was one of the best decisions of the trip. The cafe not only served a great fare and excellent coffee but Lars and...his wife were so hospitable and we were fortunate to listen to their journey to Tasmania and how they had set up their home, started their family as well as developed their cafe. The cafe is a quaint one with some lovely gardens. Lars' family home is just next to the cafe and the space of their compound is very picturesque. A great ambience and I would certainly recommend to stop by this cafe before or after your visit to the Marakoopa Cave.More
