Stopped for coffee while browsing the shops in the main street, lovely little place, lots of unusual things to look at, great coffee, didn't try the scones but they looked amazing, next time will try them.

We were lured in by the Devonshire tea sign. When you enter it's a bit confusing, there is no clear direction to the counter. You wander in and look in each room at people seated at tables. As we did this a young man saw us and called us to the counter which is towards the back. The scones are... More

This was a delicious little getaway while I was in Portland for a week or two doing some work. The staff were so friendly and everything I ordered was just divine! Can't wait to pop in next time I'm down that way!

Good location, main street of town, good parking at rear in aldi carpark, laneway through, bit overpriced for coffee and cakes and wraps, had lunch there last year, from ordering to delivery, 34 minutes, just for a wrap and coffee. There were only about 12 people in at the time, I checked and counted, service was not the best on... More

Our group of 38 guests were really impressed with this venue. Seating was arranged in a variety of rooms displaying interesting arts and crafts setting a relaxed and inspiring atmosphere. We had pre ordered scones which were cooked on the spot - yummy!! The coffees and teas were also served promptly. Congratulations

Popped in for a mid morning drink. Very impressed with the quality of coffee and a yummy soy hot chocolate which, believe me, is very hard to find. Quirky place with lots of excellent artwork to admire.

Eclectic place! Tables in different rooms with arts and crafty bits. Decor rather 70s with formica tables and leather look seats. Scone was excellent though a bit pricey at AUD9.00 with pot of tea.

Came here for lunch with a colleague as he wanted to try the scones I was a bit dubious to start but agreed. I checked out the lunch menu which was limited but some of the items sounded quite nice. I opted for the special being the satay chicken pie with fresh garden salad. The place itself is quite quirky... More

Description
This is a cafe combined with an art gallery, shopfront for local artists and swcond hand book shop. The food is simple but well prepared with a huge range of teas. The art is reasonably priced and good quality second handbooks very cheap. Lovely setting as it is a converted old house so each room is a themed sitting area for the cafe.
