We got some rather decent cheese. At the first visit the service was good, but at the second visit, the service was really bad. The food is a bit overpriced, as one might expect. The cheese is OK, but not the best in Tasmania.

Visited to get a coffee and taste some cheese. We purchased a $5 tasting board which had four very small pieces of cheese on it. Would have expected a bit more for $5! Even though it was busy we ordered some coffees but I can't tell you what they were like as they took so long we asked and got... More

This is a great first stop on the island. Always friendly staff. Have had the ploughmans lunch and home made pizzas each visit. Never disappointed. Great setting in the bushland. Good undercover seating as well as outdoor seating. Seem to always buy lots of things to take away such as the homemade sourdough bread and cheeses.

Best coffee on the island! However, there was a very limited choice for cheese tasting. The one day old (ODO) was available for tasting but not the soft cheese Saint. When one has to spend $19 for 190 gms, it would be nice to taste before buying. Secondly there was not a price list for the available cheese. Even a... More

Stopped in here after our Bruny Island adventure boat ride (which was amazing) feeling cold, hungry and slightly sick!!

Nice place to try cheeses but on the day it was freezing cold and seating outside only. A tour bus took pride of place outside and was not a pleasant experience to sit in the cold so left disappointed about this venue

Visited Bruny island as part of a holiday, the Bruny island cheese company is just off the main road so it can't be missed. The bartender was incredibly knowledgable and very friendly. The cheese was delicious and was served with home made condiments and sourdough bread, absolutely delishious! We went back the next day and had a tasting paddle of... More

This place is a must taste and see. We tried a number of their delicious cheeses with beautiful warm bread straight from the oven. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and you have the opportunity to buy not only cheeses but other local produce like the Bruny Island beer, jams, etc.

The Bruny Island Cheese Co offers cheese tasting for four cheeses for $5. Good value but you will be hard pressed to decide which ones you want to buy. They all taste good! You can eat meals here however we didn't have anything. It looked good though. A good place to stock up on local cheeses.

Thank SuzW66
