What a pie. Beautiful pastry and quality ingredients made for a special meal. The store itself was underwhelming and expected much more given the reviews on here. Portable toilets available in car park but we’re pretty horrible.More

Mrs Woolly basically sells everything! They sell souvenirs, dried food products , local products, skincare, clothes and food! Homemade cookies were excellent! Pork belly pie was decent too. We had coffee and hot chocolate to go with the food. The best was the Affogato with...More

Really good coffee and good pies. And benches outside to sit and eat. Absolutely beautiful items, and some stock we saw no-one else; but quite pricey. Still good stop for re-fueling and spending an enjoyable quarter of an hour or so.

This is by far the best shop in Glenorchy. Probably better than half the shops in QT. Beautiful gifts, toys, books, food to go, yummy biscuits. I could go on and on. Definitely worth a visit. We were there in winter. We missed the famous...More

Great spot to stop for a winter warmer coffee or home made Pie. We pulled in for coffee and found a great little shop to meander in out of the rain with all sorts of treats, both local hand made and commercial comforts.

Thanks Kristen! Glad we were able to offer a cosy port in yesterday's rainstorm and hope you found some treats and treasures to enjoy. See you again, we hope :0)

They serve really good pies and hot food over the counter. Good to check it out if you need anything from this small town.
