What a very pleasant surprise. I am told there are new managers and they are to be congratulated. This is as good as I have had in any Australian tourist region cafe. The food, surroundings and service are all up there. The atmosphere created by the colourful chairs and cosy cottage feel are contemporary by Sydney standards and not a tacky relic from 50 years ago. Loved to the magnificent lamb and mint pie with salad.
Its not in the centre of town but very close and well worth finding. More places of this calibre will add the the appeal of New Norfolk beyond the Agrarian Kitchen.

Great coffee, food and service ... despite some reviewers not liking the surroundings.. yes there is an ecclectic if not erratic gathering of machinery vehicles and junk around the grounds .. but that is the choice of the land holder not the cafe operator.
We were greeted enthusiastically by a young team of staff who promptly asked us to select a table .. outside for us as we had two dogs.. Food was great, reasonably priced and full of flavour.. pictured is s nacos for one ..BIG ,and the beef burger ....Despite it being busy with a large party the service was great .
Even a Smacko each for the dogs ...
Well done guys !!

Called and in for a special occasion with the family and while there is not much real choice in New Norfolk , the experience was pretty good.
It was busy, so glad that we booked and had a little wait but expected that. When the food came it’s was terrific.

The kitchen is a little basic so food looks like prepared off site and finished on site - so limiting the menu - but what they do is just great.

Staff are great and when the sun comes out they have outside seating that really adds to a different experience.

Well worth the visit.

Beautiful sunny day. We sat outside to soak up the sun, air was crisp as there had been a huge snow fall.
Good choice on the menu, some gluten free choice, local ciders
All in all a great experience for local Tasmania food ...
