Stopped for a coffee on a trip along the east coast and a great opportunity to have a coffee outside in the sunshine. Coffee also was great, not too hot or bitter - just smooth. However, the vanilla slice we had was still frozen in...More

Great Location, good food and coffee. Worth the drive from Hobart. Enjoy a walk on the waterfront as well.

Stopped for lunch and enjoyed a pie with salad and chips, followed by coffee. All pleasing as expected. Walls had interesting pictures and objects to look at. Clean toilets. Good choice for families at a river location.

Driving from Launceston to Hobart we wanted to stop for lunch by the water. Not a lot of choice unless you want fish & chips at a takeaway. The Gateway has a menu to suit most people. Eat in or take away, sandwiches or a...More
