Kettering - A Gateway to Bruny Island

Mermaid Cafe is situated in Kettering, a small fishing village just 30 km south of Hobart. The Cafe is situated right next to the Bruny Island ferry terminal, and offers waterfront dining with spectacular views over South Haven Marina and the calming waters of Little Oyster Cove.

Relax on the balcony or take in the water views from every table in the dining room.

Mermaid Cafe is ideal for breakfast, lunch, snacks and takeaways, and is also a fantastic venue for weddings, parties and other functions, catering for up to 50 people.

We are renowned for our fabulous location, friendly staff, delicious and freshly prepared meals using local produce, and a selection of local wines. Or if you have a ferry to catch, then pick up one of our excellent coffees to take with you.

Open 7 days, 8.30am – 5.00pm Monday – Friday, Friday evenings, or by arrangement for functions on other evenings.

Mermaid Cafe - inside or outside you are always waterside!
