Lingering Look at Windows : Happy cafe

Tasmania is a treasure trove of heritage houses, churches, gaols, bridges, even complete streets. Many of these old buildings are now reinvented into craft shops, boutiques, accommodation, restaurants and cafes. We enjoyed sampling many of them as we explored but one of the best was in Oatlands, a village that boasted over 90 heritage buildings, including 3 historic churches and a faithfully restored and fully operating windmill.

More of them in another post because today I want to show you the delightful ” pancake and crêpe shop”

The day was overcast, a typical winter day, but when we opened the door and stepped inside the warmth and happy atmosphere immediately greeted us. I think the owner set the friendly welcoming ambience. He was a bit of an Aussie larrikin with his sense of humour and smiling welcome to every one. Complete strangers were chatting together and the Dutch lady and her partner on the table next to us introduced themselves and soon we were swapping jokes and stories.

It was one of those places that if we were locals it would become a favourite place to share with friends.

Every one was happy

This is a weekly challenge hosted by Dawn of “The day after” to find interesting windows so I will add a gallery of  some other windows I found in Oatlands.
