Pay for what you get...

We have been here twice for breakfast over the New Year period (while Taste of Tasmania was on across the road) it was really busy. Staff were polite and friendly, making sure you were comfortable. Coffee was average. Food was great for what you pay, it didn't cost a fortune so we left with smiles... read more

Out walking dog and decided on a late breakfast. Waitress - "Sure; he's fine." as we took an outside table, and then she brought the menus and a bowl of water for Boaz. NICE Place was quite busy, staff working hard, but cheerful and pleasant. Wife had a vegetarian dish that seemed quite edible and I had french toast with... More

Friendly service but very poor food, we tried here 6 months ago and were disappointed but gave it a second chance, never again. Drinks order wrong and food not as described in the menu, some ingredients left off completely and others substituted, eg no Brie on chicken dish as described yet covered in mushrooms which weren't included on the menu....

Inside has too many seats and tables to relax. The space is very hot at the back and eating cheek by jowel is not for me. The breakfasts are average and most elements were pre prepared and tepid. Value for money far behind some other venues with lesser reputations. Coffee was extra but for us it was the best part... More

Saturday morning breakfast before hitting the market with friends from interstate. Outdoors but shade from umbrellas, a passing parade and lots of colour and movement. A great way to start the day. And the "Big Breakfast" really is a big breakfast - see photo. But plenty of choice for those with more modest dietary requirements.

Save yourself the disappointment - head to Machine Laundry Cafe down the square and be happy you were spared of finding a hair in your food, dirty cups by the water station and the smell of deep fryer.

Had just arrived in hobart early and went in search for somewhere nice for breakfast. I couldn't fault my breakfast, amazing fresh chunks of Tasmanian salmon with spinach and scrambled eggs, huge serving too. Could not finish it. Husband had egg and bacon roll he was a little disappointed in the focaccia bun was a little stake he thought, and... More

The $10 breakfast special is great value. Simple but wholesome. Service efficient and my meal was delivered quickly. No complaints here. It was a quiet weekday, I'd imagine it gets very busy here on weekends.
