Stopped for a takeaway coffee , stayed for breakfast. You have to love it when people care about what they do. Great scrambled eggs on sourdough and coffee 💕

Stopped in the small town of St Marys for a break. This shop sells all sorts of knick knacks as well as a good coffee. Although we didn't eat the menu looked very inviting.

Very nice cafe with kind, friendly staff and delicious, fresh food. Our collie (dog) was made very welcome, including with a bowl of water. She shared our shady spot in the beautiful herb garden.

Lovely friendly staff, sharing local knowledge about the area. The GF chocolate cake was yummy and my cousin had Turkish delight which he thoroughly enjoyed. In a beautiful part of Tasmania - hope I can come back soon!!!
