We are regulars for Sunday breakfast at Ginger Brown simply because it is one of the best,meals and coffee are always spot on and have a specials board that changes weekly so there is always something new to try.Ben and the staff always greet you with a smile and great service.Thank you for the experience.

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.

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
