I'm a sucker for a freshly baked muffin, so this is the place to go. I was having a chat to the barista, who is also the owner. Great to see a motivated young person having a go. They open early for the local fishermen...More

Went here for lunch. Food is mostly homemade and very tasy and healthy. Food was freshly prepared and served quickly even though there was one person running the whole thing. Highly recommend.

We popped in here for coffee on arriving in Strahan. It was a wet day when we arrived and the Coffee Shack was a welcome discovery. The coffee was great and so was the muffin we shared. Absolutely recommend.

Great coffee and a small selection of homemade sweet and savory delights.... always better than a large selection of brought in crap. Worth the trip, you could also do a side trip to the Franklin or take a cruise up the Gordon.

This small coffee shop with snacks and light refreshments is run by the owner in a low key and friendly style. Great place to sit and sip.

Coffee was ok, nothing amazing. But they do some great food. The toasties are nice and perfect on a cold day or even just to have while you check out Strahan.

Great coffee, friendly staff and cozy atmosphere. The variety of muffins looked amazing, but I didn’t partake as I was still full from lunch.

Not kidding - their coffee is outstanding, not to mention the delightful muffins and treats available should you be hungry. Great location in central Strahan right across from the harbour.

From memory, yes. But I don't need gluten free so don't always notice.
