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

Thought I would spoil my family for breakfast, and we decided on here. The wait staff were lovely, although as we walked in the person who was making coffee was extremely rude to the other staff that was slightly off putting. We sat down, ordered coffee weirdly they were bought to our table one at a time so constantly being... More

Went here for breakfast last friday with a group of friends. My breakfast was ok, but 2 people had scrambled eggs so salty they were not nice. But it was the cleanliness of the place that was most off putting - the highchair was filthy, the bathroom was disgusting - i had to clean the toilet seat to sit on... More

I ordered the savoury breakfast and it was substantial. Coffee was nice, and I'm picky. My only grievance would be slow service especially when cafe not very full at all and the greasy meal. I suspect a lot in my plate was done on the griddle, but the cook should know to clean it before cooking a new breakkie on... More

Environs has been a favourite for a long time. Their all day breakfasts are great- hard to choose between eggs florentine with a side of house beans and the huge fluffy ricotta pancakes with maple and bananas! Service is efficient and food and coffee hot and fresh. Do yourself a favour.

This is the second time I've been to Environ on a visit to Hobart. I've been impressed with the food both times; it's really hard to choose from a lovely, varied lunch menu and when the food arrives, it doesn't disappoint. It's a pleasant place to sit and chat. I'll definitely be back there on future Hobart visits!!

We thoroughly enjoyed our breakfast this morning. The French toast was fabulous! We also ordered the Surfn' Turf Brioche and ruby red grapefruit marmalade and Brie on ciabatta- great imaginative food. We will be back!

Had breakfast here this morning and enjoyed it so much I want to go back. It's very understated from the outside but this place does great food! We had scrambled eggs on toast and eggs benedict, apart from the toast which I personally didn't like (Turkish toasted with too much butter or maybe it was oil), everything else was perfect.... More

Environs is one of our favourite haunts in Hobart. We sometimes drop the day's plans and just go to Environs because corn cakes and scrambled eggs trump work. I'd tell you why the food is so great but I'm wasting words and you're wasting time reading reviews, so just go and order what I tell you to: Go to Environs,... More
