Friendly service, lovely food, great coffee and all in a serene atmosphere hidden away from the bustle of the day. A great place to meet for lunch, relax and catch up.

Perfect location for coffee and a comfortable walk around the garden centre, if you so wish. The cafe is cozy and well patronised; often full, especially in cold, wet weather. There is outside seating for when it's a sunny day. The menu targets Brunch or lunch, with cakes and muffins for coffee time. Amenities are good with plenty of parking... More

Pretty much the only place in Burnie you can get a black coffee that isn't burnt. Thoroughly enjoy the coffee each visit!

I have regularly visited the 'Buddha" for a meal or just coffee or tea over the years and its always lovely. The service is friendly and the food great there's a nice bit of quirkiness in the environment and you can sit inside on a wet day or out on a sunny day.

Visited here often. Always delicious and relaxing. What more could you ask for? Indoor and outdoor dining areas and a lovely selection on menu.
