Located in the heart of the iconic Cataract Gorge First Basin, with spectacular views. A spacious, glass-fronted space with water and bushland views, serving modern Australian breakfast, lunch, desserts, and cafe treats. A fully licensed venue serving local beer and wine, as well as expertly barista-made coffee. Come in, take a seat, and allow the abundant glazing of our café to captivate you as you enjoy an endless view of the Cataract Gorge over breakfast, morning tea, or lunch. If adventure calls and time is of the essence you can pop past our kiosk for a quick bite instead. This is the perfect pit stop to fill you up in-between gorge swims in the summertime, after a long walk on the zig-zag track, or to warm up with a delicious hot drink. Our team looks forward to welcoming you to relish in a generous casual dining experience in one of the most picturesque locations in Tasmania.
