You can queue for an ice cream and than find you have to eat it outside with no shelter. I saw this on a bus trip and refused to give one cent in business to this place

We have been sampling curried scallop pies all over Tassie, but none come close to theses home made pies here at the Nut Cafe. Beautiful pastry, and great curry with LOTS of scallops. Highly recommended

Stopped in after taking chairlift up and down. We're looking for a bite to eat, and chose the scallop pie. They were delicious. The service was friendly and the staff efficient.

Stanley is a beautiful spot and Nut Rock Cafe is conveniently located right at the foot of the famous The Nut rock formation. There is a nice selection of house made cakes and the coffee is fine. I was very annoyed though when I asked for a glass of water and was asked to pay for a bottle. Apart from... More

Friendly service. Excellent home made soup, toasted sandwiches, coffee (best we've had so far in Tassie) and ice cream . Great place to go after walking around the Nut.

Stopped in for a pit stop after going up to the nut. Easy and quick service in the style you would imagine from a cafe/come tourist outlet. Probably not for large scale food but it is okay for scones and tea or something small.

We already had our eye on having lunch here after walking the Nut and we weren't disappointed. We had to wait a while for our order but it was understandable as the cafe was extremely busy. The staff were very apologetic even though they had no need to be. It's a very pleasant place to sit and enjoy the view.... More

To entice hubby to walk up the Nut I promised him morning tea at the cafe afterwards. So glad we did. He loves his scones and said these were the best he has ever had. Lovely and so fresh and cream and jam were all local produce. Coffee was really nice too. The lunch menu looked great and reasonably priced.

Thank you for your review. We encourage scone bribery to get your loved ones up and down The Nut! Many people say that our scones look like The Nut and are almost as big and we pick and make our own raspberry jam to top them off! Enjoy your holiday, see you next time! Sally :-) More
