This is a quaint, peaceful little teahouse serving delicious home made dishes. We had an very generous burger & some tasty scones. Take the short walk nearby to see the impressive Kauri pine trees afterwards.

We popped in as I had seen reviews that the Devonshire Tea was worth a try. We popped in to try it and it lived up to the expectation. Lovely scones with beautiful sweet local jam and local tea was amazing. Highly recommend!

Coffee (cappuccino) tasteless like brown warm milk. We arrived 3.15 on sunday so perhaps the barista wasn't trying anymore. Views from balcony lovely which I guess is why you come.

Nice lookout next to lake barrine. Do not miss the amazing scones with local jams and homemade cream! There are also other options for breakfast (benedict eggs, toasts, bacon), as well as lunch and dinner plates. Open at 9 am until late.

Operated by the 3rd and 4th generations of the Curry family, the Tea House at Lake Barrine has been offering delicious breakfasts, lunches, and cafe drinks, boat tours, and a beautiful view of the Crater Lakes National Park tropical rainforest since the 1920s. An excellent stop off on a visit to the Tablelands, or even a destination in itself, we would love it if you stopped by!
