What a pleasant surprise. We would normally have breakfast at Jackson across the road however they were busy. We were greeted warmly and sat in an area with a lot of good natural light facing the rear courtyard. I had the corn filled pancake served with bacon tomaton home made hash brown and scrambled eggs - so very tasty and... More

From the outside I thought it was going to be "ho hum" on the inside, but what a nice surprise. Large glass window all around so every table at the back is a window table looking on to a small garden area. The café is open and full on natural light. Nice friendly atmosphere, good coffee and great food. A... More

I've been to Environs on a couple of occasions now and been very pleased with the service and quality of the appetising meals. The menu range is extensive and well described. Coffee, either in-house or take away's are excellent. The option of sitting indoors or out in the quiet sun drenched outdoor eating area is always welcomed. Car parking is... More

This is a somewhat nondescript place in Battery Point whose appearance belies the warm, sunny atmosphere, and good food inside. I ate breakfast there a few times and felt very satisfied. Given my propensity to love breakfast and New York/American upbringing, I am particular about the meals that start my day. Each time I ate there,I was very pleased with... More

Went for late breaky/lunch on our last stay in Hobart and wish we discovered it earlier. Everything on the menu sounded wonderful and unique! Beautiful coffee and food and a funky comfy feel.

We were driving around looking at the homes and trying to remember the names of the cafés we'd read reviews about when Environs just "appeared" before us. What a find. The food was cooked to perfection, the staff were engaging friendly and informative and the eatery in the sun room is like being in someone's private home. The owner and... More

We were greeted nicely at the door, the service itself was friendly and efficient. The coffee was delicious, the beans had a nice sweet flavour although the flat whites could have been a tad warmer - it was great that they were served at drinking temperature but they cooled down very quickly, so you had to drink it straight away....

The staff were friendly, and were prompt to bring a menu and offer drinks. The coffee was good, although could have been hotter. Food was amazing and for what we got it was definitely value for money! Would definitely come back.

Really great food and coffee, open at 7.30 for breakfast and I think has a lunch menu too. Friendly staff and a great coffee.. I enjoyed the coffee so much, I bought a very reasonably priced bag of beans to take home

my first impression of literally tripping over the supplies for the day was allayed by the friendly staff. It is very obvious that the kitchen is small and the supplies need to go somewhere but lovely wicker baskets would be better than boxes. The menu is interesting and my meal was beautiful and the perfect size for a light lunch.... More
