Poor service

Like many people, I love a good coffee like it's a drug, so when multiple friends were telling me how good Dr Coffee was I decided to go out of my way to try one. The coffee itself was a little more than luke warm and I had to drive to work afterwards, so not a great result. The thing... read more

I love coming into Doctor Coffee solo to read, study or wait for a friend. They appreciate a solo customer and will go out of their way to make you feel comfortable and happy. The server's have a great personality. The coffee is worth the money, even though my soy cappa would cost close to $5, it might as well... More

I asked for my large mocha to be hot and it wasn't, in fact it wasn't very well made - sort of loose and sloppy and tepid. At $5. 80 it was an expensive bad mocha.

"It's not very pleasant" my friend said when I gave him the coffee to try, while scrunching his face. It was pretty damn bad, on par with old UTAS coffee bad. (Note: this is for the Sandy Bay Doctor Coffee). Sadly I've had bad coffee here (at Salamanca) and in the Sandy Bay one a few times now. It's expensive... More

Good place for a quick coffee; there's not much food on offer. Expensive comparative to other coffee/cafe chains such as Hudsons, although it's probably proportional to the quality.

Yum! I spent the morning at this lovely cafe after walking around the markets. Had three Lattes it was so good. Also had a raspberry lemon muffin and it was so good! Great spot to catch up with friends! I'll be back!

A ‘large’ latte at Doctor Coffee in Salamanca, served in something ½ the size of most other coffee shops offer, costing $5.00, must work out to be one of the most expensive coffees in Hobart by volume. Coffee is reasonable, but not great. Did consider ordering one of the brownie on offer, which is approx. 5 x 5 cm in... More

Had a perfect flat white take out from here on Sunday morning (when lots of other places weren't open) - very friendly Tasmanian staff (as ever).

Not sure I'd rush back as service was REALLY quite slow. And as this is the second time I've experienced this, it's left a bit of a sour taste in my mouth. Along side having to repeat what I ordered (all of 2 cups of coffee) & having people being able to be pushed in, I doubt I'll be back.... More
