This review is from my lunch in May 2016 - yes, more than 6 months later and I am still thinking about it. On our way home from Bruny Island (as tourists from WA) we decided to drive through Cygnet as I had heard that it was a bit of a foodie hotspot. We were hungry, it was around 2pm... More

Stopped here for a late lunch and had the lotus plate and a pizza. The girls could not have been more helpful and professional, even though they seemed to be very busy.

The cafe is a lovely little place tucked further down the main st of Cygnet, it is cosy and offers inside and outside places to sit and eat. The staff are friendly and great for laughs and local knowledge

So look forward to coming back to Tasmania to visit friends and pay a visit to my favourite cafe in the whole world. I have never had food that has so much love put into it. The taste and presentation is superb to say the least. It has a vibrant feeling which adds to the experience. Recommend highly.

Lotus eaters is perfect for locals and by passers, simple, delicious home style food, gorgeous drinks and cakes, and the chai is unmissable. Linger outside in the summer or snuggle in with a book in the winter, enjoy the warm and personal service and let the world pass you by.

They obviously care about the food and coffee here. Deliciously creamy cheesecakes and people who understand what a macchiato should be.
