I had breakfast here while on a recent visit to Hobart and it's excellent. Delicious food, especially loved the poached eggs on sourdough. Good coffee and friendly staff top off a great breakfast experience. Highly recommended.

Maybe not exactly my budget, but when I stayed across the road I could not resist coming back for breakfast my second morning here. Not only was the coffee excellent and the service prompt with a smile the aptly named Faulty Towers breakfast with raw veggies and salad with a poached egg was unbeatable. Highly original and other diners quickly... More

Always has a creative menu, impeccably prepared food. Very tasty and flavoursome. A lovely vibe, although can be very noisy on the inside, particularly upstairs, as it's all concrete. (Please add some cushions etc to soak up the sound as its seriously loud up there!!!)

I eat here regularly with family and friends, it is often hard to get a table because it is so popular, so try for either side of the busy lunch time rush. My favorite dish is the big salad, it is just so healthy and filling. They have great coffee too. Service can be a bit hit and miss if... More

I found it super hard to find anywhere that was open for breakfast in the Hobart CBD - everywhere seemed to serve coffee, but no food!! Ordered the corn fritters with bacon - I feel the dish needed to be accompanied by a tomato chutney and I did not appreciate the coriander in the dish. Staff were helpful and the... More

We visited for lunch and sat upstairs as there were no tables available downstairs. There are big tables suitable for larger groups. We ordered the corn cakes, gratin and the big salad. We all left comfortably satisfied as all dishes were full of flavour with interesting combinations. The coffee could have been a little hotter but one of Hobart's better... More

Sat down with a paper as one does, not particularly busy - a woman came in familiar with the staff and sat at the bar stool and started chatting with staff, sat waiting thinking someone would notice and serve some ten minutes having read the paper - up and left. This has happened before, the last time I got up... More

Enjoyed a quick weekday lunch with a friend who is a fan of Criterion Street café. Another fan created! While great company helped the atmosphere, of course, this café has a wonderful menu with lots of veggie options and some retro charm. The non-veg menu choices were appealing too. I had trouble choosing because too many dishes appealed - a... More

Pros: Fantastic, filling meals, friendly staff, great hot chocolate, great location! Cons: Can get a little busy and crowded at times and top floor seating can be a bit chilly if seated near the windows. All in all a fantastic spot that we love to visit! As Molly would say "do yourself a favour.." ;)
