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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Decent food but sow, slow service - don’t go if you are in a hurry. Not very efficient in other ways - didn’t ask if we wanted something hot or cold, assumed hot (not what we wanted!)

We dropped in for a lunch snack as we headed north. Good menu selection and I picked the cheese corn and vegetable soup from the specials board. Nice coffee. The soup looked good and there were plenty of ingredients but the stock was a bit...bland. The bread sticks were a good accompaniment. There are art pieces and bags etc to buy too.More

Artifakt is a place of community, with caring owners and staff, serving well priced, high quality food. The seating arrangement provides privacy for business meetings, as well as a large share table and some soft armchairs. The gallery exhibits works of an extremely high standard,...chosen with Nancy’s well educated discernment, at a range of prices Janelle makes excellent coffee and she is quick and efficient.More

A regular lunch spot for us - cheerful, fresh and prompt. Hubby love the lasagne, I'm a fan of the chicken salad.

We had a long drive from Hobart and were looking for somewhere to eat in Swansea, there are more than a few choices but I won the day and we ate here Nice service, food comes out quick, drinks were lovely. I had the Nachos...which was interesting, it was deconstructed but it worked really well to the point I am wondering why I always put everything on in the first place, every chip was crispy to the end, I tip my hat. If I lived in Swansea, I'd have lunch here once a week, good prices, good valueMore

Nice café and gallery. Gallery fairly expensive and sells a range of feminine orientated products. Long Black cost $5.50 but it was super strong (3 shot) and served in a large mug.

We had a little lunch here - burgers, coffees and banana bread. The staff were friendly and the food was yum. We enjoyed the little gallery situated right next door.

Very rude customer service. They got our orders mixed up and when I asked for it to be fixed, I received eye rolls and passive aggressive comments. Will not be back.

Went for the curry night and was terribly disappointed. Server knew nothing about the various curries on offer apart from whether they were hot and spicy. Food arrived and the flavours were bland and uni threshing. The Mali chicken was devoid of anything interesting. Akin...to a chicken soup. The beef vindaloo was thin, devoid of any spicy heat and reminded me of a beef stew with tomato sauce. The pickles were simply raw sliced vegetables with a pot of uninteresting raita. Overall disappointed as this cafe is normally serving great food.More

Enjoyed coffee and a fresh muffin, the staff were friendly. Nice little cafe that looked popular with the locals, always a good sign. Would recommend this cafe.
