We just had a quick coffee but it was fun to get some fish food and feed the frenzied fish under the jetty. We gave our fish food to some little girls and they absolutely loved it.

Good for a coffee and cake. Feed the fish from the balcony. Very quaint if you get the chance. Also has limited food. Mainly pies from the oven. A nice place to relax by the lake.

Wow. The new managers have brought such a warm friendly vibe to the Boatshed. Good coffee, fantastic views over the river to North Brother mountain and dolphins playing in the river. Everything is sparkling clean and I must book that BBQ boat for a day...More
