About Tailrace Cafe

Situated within the Tailrace Centre, Tailrace Cafe is dedicated to fun, food and family dining. Spacious, fresh and contemporary in layout, this cafe is an ideal spot for parents to stop and relax - while the kids play at nearby Kids Paradise and enjoy the panoramic view from the windows while marvelling at sweet delights that tempt from the cake cabinet. Much of what goes into the menu is grown on site and the difference is clear in diverse menu items that are influenced by Asian and Mediterranean flavours. Perhaps start the day on the deck with a coffee and halloumi melt, with smashed avocado, tomato, onion, egg and watercress; while lunchgoers opt for beer battered fish and chips, garden salad, lemon wedge and housemade tartar, with the kids tucking into chicken tenders and chips.

Amazing staff and food!
Such a great place for families to enjoy a meal together fuss-free. Very friendly and amazing staff and love their menu!


Lovely service
Service was amazing. I was hoping for some fresh Tasmanian produce... I'm not sure if it was or not as it didn't specify on the menu. Food was tasty.



Awesome awesome club sandwich! A definite hunger buster for lunch!
