Hobart has quite a few good options when it comes to breakfast and lunch, but Ginger Brown would be in my top 2. The food is a little bit different (today I had Welsh Rarebit with confit duck and maple bacon, wife had an omelette with beef and spring onion inside), but always delicious. The cafe has a retro look,... More

I can not rate Ginger Brown enough!! Coffee is great, service is excellent and the house mad crumpets with vanilla butter are to die for! Although it's always busy I don't mind, the atmosphere makes for a great coffee spot. If your keen on getting a spot for the weekend then book ahead. It's such a great little place it's... More

Tried ginger brown on quite a few occasions but won't be back as too crowded on the weekend and impossible to get a seat. Food is ok, coffee is good.

The menu is interesting as is the decor. There is a great emphasis on brunch dishes, lots of egg options. The smoked Salmon, creamed leeks, poached egg, crispy prosciutto & beetroot chutney was a really tasty meal. Every mouthful made me want more. The Wallaby Couscous Salad with pickled a Ginger was equally as exciting for the taste buds. They... More

It's the perfect cafe for a Saturday or Sunday brunch, or to have a rest after a long walk on Mt.Wellington or a bike ride. It's very busy during the weekend.

A good buzz and good service in this very busy cafe. Good food from an interesting menu with large portions. Will most certainly go there on my next visit.

The service is great - efficient and friendly, The menu is fabulous and my friend who is a great chef in Sydney loves the food here and it suits my less adventurous tastes as well. Retro décor makes it a warm and no fuss place to meet us with friends or... More

Fabulous coffee and atmosphere!! We had the Orange and Almond cake and White Chocolate and Raspberry cake, both of which we're sensational. Service was great, friendly and fast - highly recommend

I have visited Ginger Brown on a number of occasions recently and each time it has been great. The staff are very quick to attend to you and take your order. The coffee is great and is accompanied by a small chocolate which is a nice touch. I have tried the house beans, pork belly and calamari salad, the corn... More
