An Apple-Isle Brekkie…

After a long day (I believe we fell into bed at 10:30pm after a 6:15am start) at “the Tassie social event of the year’… We were up and ready for a re-fuel before the flight home. On advice from a Tassie local we walked 1.8km (according to googlemaps) to our destination; Stillwater, located in a super old mill on the banks of the Tamar River. One step in the door and I knew we were going to have a good meal… I was almost disappointed that we were there for brekkie, but I made sure to order a dish that transgressed into lunch… The very intriguing sounding eggs en cocotte: eggs with smoked ham hock, green pea purée, du puy lentils, crispy ham & ciabatta soldiers… totes equals perfect brunch!

 My vegetarian dining buddy asked me a fair question:

“why do you always have to order the weirdest thing on the menu?”

I don’t know the answer, it’s just something in me but since she had ordered the other potential brekkie for me; Going Vegetarian, I was pretty happy. The addition of halloumi to breakfast was a masterpiece…. Even non-vegetarians should consider this dish, just add a side of salmon, bacon or ham and you are set.

Finally the man of the gang, and what a gang we were after sharing a small hotel room between the four of us, ordered the Big Tasmanian Breakfast… The obvious choice for the size of his hangover.

Definitely a place to return for lunch or a weekend dinner on our next visit to Lonnie.

  1. DAMMIT! where are the pictures gone?!

  2. Those eggs look good…! and I’m not surprised as we’ve been there for a few dinners and it’s always fantastic. Stillwater used to be an annual tradition for the first night of our lads fly fishing weekend.
    The local produce (suckling pig and cape grim steak were brilliant) and the staff were always super knowledgeable and friendly, even after we became a bit rowdy (after sampling most of the local Tamar Valley wines and single malts!). The Lark Distillery was a standout.

    1. SO good! Can’t wait to be back in Lonnie and making a visit for dinner… You had me at ‘suckling pig’!!
