We were a group of 4 local women walking the Rainbow Falls track and found this fabulous Tea House when it had just opened. Hot, 'glowing' from the walk, they accepted us in our state to sit and experience their garden atmosphere, linen tableclothes, china cups and fantastic choice of teas with scones just out of the oven YUMMY. So much so, we have been back and coming again to celebrate a birthday 'High Tea'! Not a place to expect a quick cuppa. Excellent!

I turned up ready for a tasty morning tea with a friend. I was nicely surprised with the lovely house. There are a huge variety of teas to choose from, however I wanted something a bit decadent. The scone was really delicious, served with strawberry jam and clotted cream.The coffee I had came with the scone for $12, which I thought was reasonable. My friend had fruit toast, which she had tried on another occasion, and also declared it delicious.
Staff were helpful and efficient. I am already checking my diary to see when I can go back.

What a lovely find, lovely cafe in old house next to the Rainbow Falls carpark. Set in beautiful gardens with indoor and outdoor seating. We sat outside on the wide verandah. Very pleasant ambiance. Hosts lovely, good range on menu, lots of teas to choose from as I am a big tea drinker this was welcome. Tea very nice as well as the cappuccino. Devonshire tea beautiful with excellent scone, jam and clotted cream. Delicious. A lovely place to have a cuppa or meal.

lovely setting in an old colonial house with gorgeous gardens and the cat and dog loping about - wonderful menu and choice of teas, whilst we had to wait for food which came one by one with lag time, can't fault the breakfast - delicious vegetarian omelette, will definitely visit again, hostess delightful
