Fabulous place for coffee & cake or lunch. Great relaxed atmosphere, an amazing selection of foods for those who usually find it hard to choose something they can actually eat without the waitress or chef having a meltdown. Gluten-free, vegan, dairy free, sugar free, Everything I have tried has been delicious. Only setback, sometimes finding parking is a problem.

My husband and I wandered down to this cafe from West Hobart on a Saturday while on a weekend trip to Hobart, We arrived around 10am and the tables were either busy or booked but there was a communal table in the middle that we could sit at. We both ordered off the specials board and really enjoyed our food.... More

Staying close by this place was close enough to walk for the morning coffee. Weekends are busy so recommend booking. Generous serves- excellent breakfast menu and friendly staff make this a worthwhile place to visit.

Lunched here with a friend recently, top marks for fantastic food. I had a dish from the blackboard specials, if it was on the regular menu I'd eat here every day. Ravioli filled with whipped ricotta and golden brown mushrooms, served on a swoosh of creamy pumpkin, with burnt butter, and crispy pancetta and sage leaves. It was a delight,... More

So much to choose from and not enough days to stay!! Great service and absolutely everything that we picked over a period of 4 days was awesome. If I had to pick it would be the home-made baked beans with speck. Lovely little retro cafe with great atmosphere.

We had trouble finding places that were open for breakfast, hubby had to google to find one. This place was really nice and friendly, we were lucky to get a table at 8.30 in the morning on a Saturday without a booking. I had a rice porridge and hubby had bacon & eggs, all beautifully served and delightful to eat.
