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

You develop a soft spot for certain eating places - Raincheck in North Hobart has always been my preferred breakfast spot - accessible, consistent, convenient and friendly I've always considered it hard to beat. That is until I tried Ginger Brown in South Hobart. This is a seriously good restaurant with a thoughtfully designed set of menus from breakfast through... More

Had the sweet potato en sunflower seed fritters, really brilliant! Kim chi pancakes are a similar experience. Have been here a few times now and it's consistently good! Great for coffee as well.

I dined here a little while ago but was late to write a review! The food here is some of the best I've had and I really enjoyed the service from the owner despite the high demand to this popular cafe! For brunch I had the kimchi pancake and it was honestly one of the best meals I've ever had.... More

Such an interesting menu at Ginger Brown. Healthy without being too in your face. Alternate grains in lots of dishes - so great gluten free choices, always a plus for me. All day breakfast, snacks or light lunches - plenty of options. The coffee is great but they do all sorts of good juices etc so give that a try... More

After two months in south eastern Asia we headed back to GB for breakfast today. WOW, have to say it's the best thing we've had since being home. The menu has been slightly re-vamped and our sweet-potatoe & sunflower seed fritter was to die for. The coffee & service as always was great. Keep it up Ben & the team... More

A big call I know, but this place never fails to disappoint. A continually evolving menu with great options to suit every mood and hunger (or hangover!) level. Magnificent coffee to top things off. Cool vibe inside, without the arrogance you might expect with somewhere this good. It's small, so book to avoid the queue.

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
