why was this lovely place empty on a friday at lunch time!!!

We had a lovely time! We booked a table but arrived to find few others with the same idea. This is a lovely sun filled eating space; we elected to eat inside this time as it is winter after all, and we were very comfortable. Service was friendly and competent, menu excellent, and we received a... read more

That was the best breakfast burger I've ever had, I could eat that any time of the day! Service was warm and genuine, coffee was spot on. White and bright a nice change from hipster chic.

Environs opened in Battery Point some years ago to great fanfare, and i recently went back for a meal, but was sad to see some menu favourites had gone! still not bad and decently priced in a quaint, quiet battery point setting!

We came for brunch on a cold and windy day. The staff gave us a table outdoors were it was pretty uncomfortable because the heaters had run out of gas. We were eyeing empty tables inside but the staff told us they were reserved.. which wasn't quite true because 30 mins later they were still empty. More importantly, the pancakes,... More

Great service we were met with a smile handed the menus and our coffee order taken. 5 mins later the coffee was in front of us and our orders taken. My wife loved the french toast with figs as for my scrambled eggs and supposed sausage I cannot say the same. The eggs had been scrambled on the hot plate... More

Nice food but lacks a bit of atmosphere. Slightly drab. Four of us eating for lunch and all meals good but fairly standard cafe fare.

Had breakfast here on our last morning in Hobart, Good little spot! Very unassuming from the outside but a nice area out the back - Breaky was good, hit the spot and Orange juice was nice and freshly squeezed

The wife and I visited this great little cafe a number times for breakfast during our Tassie stay and absolutely loved it. Dominic consistently produced great coffee and whoever the chef was on the days we went, kept producing delicious and well presented food. The service and friendliness adds to the whole experience and as Arnie would say, " we'll... More

Great staff, nice atmosphere, very tasty food. Only disadvantage is some of the dishes are huge! We'd probably come more often if it didn't take so long to exercise off our sunday brunch! Pays to take a hungry friend along. Excellent coffee. One of the best in hobart. Lots of interesting and delicious flavours. Also offers nice beer, though we... More
