Gingerbrown is a lovely cafe in South Hobart, and definitely the best coffee up this end of town. The staff were very accommodating when there were no seats inside, and were able to find us a perch at the end of a bench. The coffee was delicious and came quickly. The food was also prompt, but unfortunatley we were disappointed... More

Ginger Brown just keeps providing fantastic food, always fresh and innovative, but with some tried and true old faithful dishes. The baked beans with speck are back and are great. The coffee is always consistently good. The service is wonderfully friendly. A great local café to enjoy at anytime of day

This was my first visit to Ginger Brown and I was most impressed. The size is deceiving - inside is quite large. Service was fast and friendly. Meal was great too - we had eggs, avocado and bacon and house made crumpets ($12) which I found to be very reasonable. Also enjoyed the banana smoothies - yum!

Had lunch again at Ginger Brown yesterday with a friend and was reminded of how wonderful the food really is here, flavour combinations I would never think to use but the work! We were in a hurry and they made sure that we were attended to swiftly. This was very much appreciated. Whilst i'm not a fan of the decor... More

Enjoyed our breakfast, loved our table at the door facing the entrance. It's a busy cafe and the place was full before work the morning we went on a Tuesday. Service excellent. We didn't like the coffees but the overall experience was very good.

One of these trendy, overpriced arty places. Service good. Food and coffee very average. Very disappointing.

Wow, what a little gem of a place. Super friendly staff and the food!.. Obviously made with care and passion. We loved it so much; we dined here two times... So fresh, and by the taste - organic. The house made crumpets with caramelized nectarine's are to die for! You must try. The best! I also had the vege salad,... More
