I guess it was just bad luck. An omelette and a fried egg punished its two consumers that night with no sleep and plenty of running. Clearly this place usually gets good reviews so this was probably a one off eggercise but there won't be an opportunity for redemption as although it seems fair to give a place a second... More

We stopped here after a day out, and initially were a little reluctant because we had the kids with us. It didn't matter, the staff were friendly and helpful, even gave the kids a little treat the keep them occupied. Nice atmosphere, good service and great coffee. Couldn't ask for more.

Had a fantastic breakfast here on a Sunday. Coffees were good, nowhere near the calibre that we experienced at pilgrim. But the food-awesome! I had the kimchi pancake which was amazing, and a pretty big serve size-drool. Wifey had the bubble and squeak- again delicious and a generous portion. Will be back next time we're in hobart!

My partner and I cannot get enough of this place. Breakfast, Brunch, Lunch and even a tasty afternoon snack just hits the spot for our tummies each time. We sometimes cannot go without a week to visit this special place. :) Coffee/Hot drinks always amazing, food is always exciting when their Blackboard specials change but nothing quite beats their delicious...

Had coffee here and backed up for lunch twice and an afternoon tea. Very impressive - the staff here love what they do and it shows in the quality of their food and coffee. A mistake in service was quickly and cheerfully corrected. Not cheap, but good value, lots of variety and a great atmosphere.

A great place for a snack or takeaway if you are doing your laundry as I was--got a good coffee and a very good homemade muffin, AND change for the drier.

My first visit to Ginger Brown and they have nailed it. Our food was hot fresh and tasty and so were the coffee's. Service was a delight and the retro furniture gave it a bit more of a homely feel. I hade the house made beans which were nicely presented and hit the spot perfectly. My friend had the croque... More

We tend to do breakfast more often than we do an evening meal or lunch out as it suits our lifestyle. Our previous favourite (Ethos), is no longer open on a sunday which is pretty much the only time we can do breakfast. But I have to say Ginger Brown ticks all the box's. The staff are very pleasant, the... More

"Oh wow!" This was a comment made a number of times over brunch this morning. From the moment you step in the door, the waft of delicious smells smacks you in the face, followed by a warm welcome from the staff- and it gets better from there! Great coffee: Tick. Great food: Tick. Great service: Tick tick tick. Like a... More
