Doesn't look great, but it is. Food is good, service is excellent, and the staff are friendly and obliging. Go here if you need a snack or something more substantial. Adds a lot to the Glenorchy experience.

The Trading Post was a darling cafe & shop in a darling town. Delicious coffee and carrot cake. You must stop in and check it out. The people were so nice. We’ve been home a few days now and I miss their treats.
