Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The savoury crepes are really good, make sure you take cash, when we went there they had no electronic payment systems. Very sad about the coffee, it was disgusting so suggest you go to the Purple Possum in St Mary’s if you want a coffee...or stick to a pot of tea.More

We love fudge, and we love elephants, so this was an obvious place for us to stop in and visit! We'd bought Mt Elephant Fudge elsewhere on our travels, since quite a few outlets sell it, so when we saw that this was where they...make it, we had to check it out. The owner was very friendly an we had a lovely chat. Fudge here is cheaper ($4) than other outlets ($4.50-$5), and they also sell packages with ends ($1) which is a great way to sample several flavors. We could also taste three fudges. Nothing was being made (it was a Saturday) while we were there. There's also a cafe with coffee, cake and more. We also loved the various elephants throughout the place, and the decor. Nice place to visit!More

Had tried a piece of this fudge in Hobart and when we saw the shop we had to stop. Went in an we were meet by a lovely lady who immediately offered some tasting samples. The coconut ice was brilliant as was the white fudge....Stop in here even if you are not a fan of fresh homemade fudge, this place will convert you!More

Loved the atmosphere here. Warm and inviting with much to peruse. Delicious ice cream, coffee, fudge and local arts and crafts. Found Liz to be very friendly and accommodating. Hidden gem in this quaint little town in the mountains of Eastern Tassie.

We've visited for lunch a number of times lately and enjoyed home made soup, based on produce from Lis's garden and toasted home made bread. Yum! There is a great community atmosphere and the host is fantastic. Highlights also include delicious cakes, banana smoothies, home...made freckles and all Lis's famous Mt Elephant Fudge range.More

Passing through the township of St Marys on our drive to the coast, we found this delightful cafe and were not sorry we stopped. Pleasant service and a chat whilst the food arrived. For lunch we enjoyed good coffee, quiche and brownies. As we were...leaving somone decided she need to sustain her energy levels with some extra fudge. Yum!More

A perfect place to take a break and sample delicious fudge, cakes, cheesecakes, ice cream, quiche or a full flavoured toastie. Coffee is spot on too. The owner makes you feel welcome and can give you great advice on the local area. #crazycarrsgapyear #jandaljournals

We were passing through St Mary's after negotiating Elephant Pass and just fancied an ice cream. Mount Elephant Fudge shop looked promising, so we went in. There weren't a huge choice of flavours, which is perhaps a good thing, but the ones we had were...delicious. The lady serving us, probably the owner, was delightful despite dealing with an issue with her assistant! There is plenty of room to sit inside and I suspect there was an outside seating area too. Give it a try, you'll enjoy the experience!More

Sorry it took me so long to review on TA! By far the most comfortable place for a coffee in St Mary's, Mt Elephant Fudge cafe boasts a relaxed and friendly atmosphere, great food (both savoury and sweet), proper coffee and real hot chocolate made...with molten choc. The whimsical, elephant themed decor and homemade willy wonka-esque chocolate creations truly give this unique spot a character you are unlikely to find anywhere else. We spent a week in St Mary's and much of it trying the wide selection of fudge flavours on offer. There's something for everyone. The milkshakes here are the best I've ever had and the fudge is unreal. Must be eaten to be believed! We also had some delicious quiches and toasties during our stay. If you're in St Mary's pop in, treat yourself to something sweet and say hi to Lizzie!More
