Great breakfast

Great food and coffee...... not sure about the distinct younger hippie vibe as I visited with my daughter. OK fior breakfast but would not make haste to go there for lunch.

For a wonderful breakfast, this is a place to be in central Hobart. A great choice of yummy treats for breakfast served up quickly and efficiently with no fuss. Just loved the trendy comfortable atmosphere and located just off Liverpool Street...well done

Have had coffees here before always been nice but enjoyed the corn and chilli fritters today they were cooked well with a taste of kaffir lime leaves and a hint of chilli came with an avocado salsa and certainly value for money. Service is far better than it once was quirky little place with an upstairs section. Yes a little... More

We stumbled about this cute little Cafe after first arriving in Hobart. The food was great, eggs bacon and halloumi all cook perfectly. The service was ok, but seemed like if you were a local you were treated a little better. One let down was that it was uncomfortably cold inside. Might not need windows open when it is 4... More

First, the food is really very good; I loved my lamb sandwich today and my wife's pulled pork and savoury pancakes were excellent. Also nice cakes. Staff are very pleasant and food service was quick. Prices are on the cheap side. However, the coffee was only ok, coffee service was very slow and the music was way too loud (very... More

Cafe by day a and by night? This spot turns itself into a pop up pleasure experience. The menu changes but is fresh and innovative . We enjoyed ourselves .. Only down sides is the wine list. Far too expensive for a cafe and lacks the opportunity to make the most of local Tassie wines.

During the day there is excellent coffee and cake and fine service to be enjoyed at the Criterion Street cafe. This summer there was an additional treat - two young chefs (one Italian and the other experienced there) took over the restaurant and produced a brilliantly innovative and balanced tasting menu that was offered on Sunday and Monday nights. Let's... More

We stopped in for a quick lunch, found a table upstairs in the small area there is and service was ok. We ordered a chicken sandwich, hippy chickpea and 2 homemade lemonades. The menu promised a herb and lemon roasted free range chicken sandwich with aioli and greens. We aren't sure what happened to that roasted chicken with herb and... More

We ate here on Monday night at the new dinner pop up titled "Fun Dining". As the title suggests it was a fun, casual atmosphere with the friendly professional service that the cafe is renowned for. More so however, the food by far exceeded our expectations and totally blew us away ! The menu was a simple list of eight... More

I come back to this little café week by week due to my favourite meal. The lamb Sandwich. Although people roll there eyes and say its just a sandwich.... go try it! The homemade relish and mayo is amazing! The staff are friendly and always provide good service. I'll be back for that sandwich! The café is also bright and... More
