On a quiet road between Grassy and the main town of Currie, the Cafe Brewer sign stands out like, well, you get the picture. There’s nothing but bush and cattle, and then the blue and white sign. The cafe is on the back of a house, and is a semi outdoor affair where walls/windows can be peeled back to let in the breeze in warmer weather and keep it cosy in cooler weather. If you are in the market for a potted plant or two there is a small collection for sale. My scone is impressive, and I could easily eat a couple. The raspberry jam is a nice change from the usual strawberry but it’s nothing extraordinary. The beautiful King Island cream is as clotted as I’ve ever had in Australia, and I wonder why we can’t buy it on the mainland. What a shame!
Tea: A handful of basic Lipton tea bags served in a good-sized teapot.
Overall: A welcoming deck cafe down an unassuming driveway.
Location: 525 Old Grassy Rd, Lynwood, King Island TAS 7256 Ph: 03 6461 12256
