Looking for a new spot to enjoy on your travels around Bruny Island? The Jetty Cafe at Dennes Point has been found by some and apparently searched for by others. It is located at the northern tip of beautiful Bruny Island which is not far from Hobart in Tasmania! You can drive there, if you catch the car ferry across the D’entrecasteaux Channel from Kettering. Or you can sail there and moor at the Jetty 3 minutes walk from the cafe. Rod’s Water Taxi will take a group of you (www.hobartwatertaxis.com.au) if those other two options don’t work for you, but call him for a booking. The Cafe has been opened for 18 months now and has already hosted a number of weddings (see special blog page & photo’s), parties, musical concerts, special functions e.g. a lunch following an Opera performance (Chamber Made Opera, Melbourne) for 10 Days on the Island in 2010, in addition to the usual weekend breakfasts, lunches, dinners and much more. In this very modern complex there is a little General Store which sells local produce, Valhalla ice-cream (is there any other), papers etc.. There is a beautiful Art Gallery (www.artatthepoint.com.au)that will amaze you with their classy, interesting & unusual works, all produced by local talented and highly skilled artists who seem to abound here.
If you like, you can sit on the deck and listen to the water lapping on the shore below while you enjoy a glass of your favourite Tasmanian wine or sometimes you can watch the Kyakers make their way across the Channel to have a coffee. There are all sorts of craft as well as the dolphins, seals, birds and other creatures that cruise past from time to time that also make good viewing. This is a place where time cruises as well so don’t visit if you are in a rush!
We have delicious coffee, hot chocolate (the real deal), fresh cakes, lunches, seasonal dinner menu and we feature Tasmanian wines on our wine list.
