About the BoatHouse

Opened in 2017, the Boathouse has been a true labour of love for owner Paul Puddiphatt, who restored the lower level of his home back to it's long forgotten commercial roots.

The cafe creperie was first managed by Lizzie, who fuelled our success through her passion for nutritious, attractive food and a determination to create and cater excellence to vegans, vegetarians, cake-lovers, crepe-conisseurs and everyone in between!


In 2018, we were priviledged to have Raph join as our Head Chef. Bringing exceptional skills, creativity and a special 'je-ne-sais-quoi' to the Boathouse, he recently created our new evening menu. So, from 6 - 10pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights you can now join us for dinner, when the lights get dimmed and the wine flows just that little bit faster.

Currently, we are developing the future of this wonderful place in the New Normal.


Why it's got to be just so...

All those playing a part in the Boathouse story are united by a dedication to quality. From sourcing the freshest local ingredients to plate presentation, from artwork and flowers to hygiene and service, we appreciate it's often the small details that make the biggest difference.

I don't often write reviews but had to with this little place. Delicious coffee and carrot cake, and I'm fussy about coffee! Cosy, romantic, french cafe feel and ultra relaxed vibe.


"Great find, love the casual atmosphere. We had the cream cheese and salmon crepes with nice glass of wine. Friendly service, my grandchildren love it".


"Yay for vegans!! Beautiful place. Yummy vegan cake!!"
