We have stopped at Poatina many times and never knew that there was a cafe here. It’s sort of hidden away but easy to find once you know. Poatina has a population of only 110 people and it’s obvious that everyone know everyone! The cafe...makes a fantastic coffee and has a really warm and welcoming feel about it. Although we didn’t eat, the selection of cakes looked impressive. We will definitely visit next time as we always ride the Esses when we’re in Tassie.More

We called into The Tiers Tea Lounge at Poatina on our way up the mountain. The staff were very friendly and chatty, and the cafe decor was very cute. The homemade sausage rolls were delicious, and the coffee was good too. Would highly recommend turning...into the Poatina Village and dining at The Tea Lounge.More

Friendly hosts, serving great coffee, a large variety of teas, hot chocolate and more. They also have a very good selection of savoury foods, sausage rolls, toastie, etc. It's a place we recommend stopping at.

This is the best kept secret in Tasmania, and now it's time to let the cat out of the bag. Sensational coffee (I only drink short blacks) and this was the best I've had in a long, long time. The "boss" had the Turkish Hot...Chocolate and reported this to be exceptional. The minted lamb sausage roll and the scones (both made in-house) were excellent. But the real treat we're the owners - there were so engaging and friendly. Oh . . . and did I mention, the prices were straight out of the 90's. What a fabulous place. We will return. Thank you so much.More

We are staying with dear friends in ex-Hydro village Poatina, central Tasmania, often above the cloud line. Clean air, cosy coffee, scrumptious food greeted us at the heart of the village along with a wonderfully warm welcome. Belightful.

We stopped in Poatina just by chance - mostly out of curiosity and because we had some time. We were immediately impressed with the stocking and cleanliness of the public washrooms. Then we walked down to the few shops around the town "square". The Tiers...Tea Lounge looks plain from the outside, but inside the small tea room, the seating is casual and comfortable. The staff were friendly and solicitous, frequently joking with their customers. The regulars obviously love the place. Great selection of teas, coffees, substantial snacks of various types, and "healthy" and not so healthy desserts. What a hidden gem!More

Great quality coffee (Rituelle) and extensive tea selection (TasTea). Home made sweet and savoury foods - thank you very much - including vegan and sugar free options. Nice little gallery within the lounge.

A very relaxed and intimate setting with very friendly hosts. A great place to relax over great coffee and a range of delicious treats. Lots of lovely merchandise for sale by local artists that really enhance the setting.
