Been before and love the people and the venue; also the food previously. Was very disappointed this visit in a slow cooked lamb dish which bore no resemblance to slow cooked lamb. Everything else was terrific so I hope that was a temporary glitch!

We stopped in for a coffee and got a lot more than that! The cafe is just beautiful. Sitting under the conservatory roof has a lovely ambience and there are other equally gorgeous areas to sit. We were able to order a pot of brewed...soy Chai, the best we’ve had in a long time and the gluten free orange cake was sensational. Friendly efficient service and to top it off, a harpist providing beautiful background music. We wished we’d come for breakfast, the menu looked so enticing. 5 stars!More

We stopped by for coffee and cake, well, a cream bun, actually. The bun took me straight back to my childhood. This was the first cream bun I'd had in about 50 years and it tasted exactly as I remembered. The coffee was excellent and...the garden setting is gorgeous. The place was heaving on a Sunday morning and they were coping very well. Luckily, it was apple season and the excellent orchard out back, with it's printed guide to the many apple varieties was fascinating.More

Delicious food in a delightful setting. Lovely range of menu items - it’s almost too hard to choose! Friendly staff and fabulous atmosphere.

We called in for lunch about six months ago - and both said we had to come back. It would have been a five star rating then. Second visit was also good, but we had to wait an hour for our lunch after ordering -...a bit difficult with kids in toe. The meal was not quite of the same very high standard as previous visit too, but we would return again.More

We had an afternoon to spare and drove round from Tinderbox to Cygnet. What a charming surprise! A lovely cafe called the Old Bank, like a slice of history, with an apple and pear orchard and seating, out the back. Delicious gluten free cakes and...a wide selection of hot beverages. So nice, and so charming. Lovely staff too.More

Stopped in Cygnet for afternoon tea. Almost missed this little place. So glad we didn't because the cakes and coffee were wonderful. Service was friendly, prompt and professional. I will definitely be going back to this one.

On a bit of drive around Huon Valley and coast we stopped in at Cygnet and happened to park opposite the Cygnet Old Bank and with luck got a spot for lunch in the Conservatory cafe. Eggs Benedict of her and Nepalese curry for me....The curry was excellent! Friendly service, nice decor and setting, and very popular with the locals. It was a Monday and filled up for lunch.More
