Walk in the door and you are made to feel special and very welcome. Amazing scones, jam & cream - Oh the size of the scones!! definitely the best scones I have tasted followed by a Latte and the other choices looked very interesting too. The memorabilia around the walls is fantastic. Plus you can purchase fresh potatoes at a... More

Apart from the Blueberry Barn Cafe at Frankford, there are no shops of any kind along the road from Exeter heading towards Latrobe and Devonport. We stopped for breakfast and were the only customers. The lady behind the counter was very warm and friendly. She made us coffee and then started cooking two large country breakfasts. Everything was freshly cooked... More

We had a great lunch here, considering there was really not much other option for miles around! We stopped in on our return and had ice cream too. Thanks!

Once or twice a year I drive along the Franklin highway and can never resist a stop. This time we sampled their awesome affogato and iced coffee with their magnificent hamburger. The food is great and presentation excellent. Sitting outside with the birds and the Bantam chickens and the birdsus priceless. Service with a smile... If I had to be... More

Located in a farming district and set back from the road up a short driveway is the Blue Berry Barn. We took a gamble hoping to get a pie or pasty for lunch. We expected a cafe offering all things blueberry. We were greeted by a cage on the patio with some pretty blue birds. When we entered the cafe,... More

We have driven past lots of times and finally called in for lunch on Sunday. The food was delicious, service was great. Won't drive past again will definitely stop for a meal.

A well placed cafe on the longest driving day we (mum and I) did in Tasmania, with the added bonus for us in having a placename cooincidentally relevant to some of our family history. It was great that they have a decent 'tea for two' option. A large crockery teapot plus a top-up jug, so there were at least 5... More

On the way from Exeter to Devonport. A welcome oasis. Great coffee and snacks. Pleasant country atmosphere and homestyle service and cooking. A great place to revive!

Being hungry my husband picked the priciest item on the menu: Camelot Farmer Lunch for $17.50. It contained one single slice of ham and one single slice of salami; it had lots of lettuce, tomatoes and cheeses. If you like meat/ being full it is not worth it. On the other hand my Turkish bread with filling and the fresh... More

Very pleasant atmosphere with friendly, helpful staff. Lovely 'homestyle' food with plenty of it on the plate. Moderate prices as well. My coffee was "ok" but the delicious desserts soon made that a distant memory. Well worth the stop on the Frankford Hwy.

Thank The Macs M
