“Amazing coffee”
Reviewed 13 April 2014

Called in here for some much-needed coffees on the way to Freycinet. The staff were really friendly and the cafe had excellent ambience. The art on display was fantastic and helped create a great atmosphere showcasing Tasmania's talent. They know their coffee and it tasted great. Staff love a chat as well which meant a return visit on our trip back to Hobart!

“Delightful Surprise!”
Reviewed 2 March 2014

We stopped in Swansea for a light lunch on our travels around Tasmania. We looked at the immediate options including the one with the best view over Freycinet peninsular. However the options were only substantial and expensive meals and no clear gluten free options.
When we popped across the road to Artifakt we were immediately smiled at and when we asked about gluten free they completely understood and explained the options to us. I chose a homemade cauliflower soup with gf toast. It was delicious and exactly what I needed! When I asked about it afterwards the owner was able to tell me she followed the 'sydney rockpool' recipe. It was great value. My husband had a chicken and sundried tomato panini with their own pesto. Also delicious. He is very fussy about his coffee and we were both impressed by the offering, especially when we found out they were just breaking in a new machine, delivered that morning! I also wandered around the gallery which had many lovely local works and tempting ceramics, jewellery and timberwork. We bought a lovely silver and amethyst ring in celebration of our wedding anniversary! Wish this place were closer to home! Toilet facilities were good too.

“Excellent food, art and staff”
Reviewed 26 January 2014

This cafe and gallery in the heart of Swansea is a welcome addition to the East Coast, and should not be missed. With a wonderful contemporary art collection and gorgeous home made food it is very high quality. We really enjoyed it, and it even has baby changing facilities!
