the best (decaff) coffee in town

I drink decaff not from choice so it's really important to me to get a good one. This place I had to check it was decaff! That's how good it was. And the corn fritters are always consistently good. Love the atmosphere and décor : grungy but nice. Very relaxed - the staff clearly like working here... read more

I would probably have criterion st waffles as one of the dishes in my 'last meal'. My eyes sparkle with joy, like a dog who realises he's going to the park, on nearing this small cafe. Every bite is like you've just picked up a hitchhiker, you know it's possibly going to kill you if you keep doing it, but... More

I went here for breakfast with my son and daughter. The decor and furniture are a cross between grungy, functional and aging but if you go here to have a solid breakfast does that matter? I had the salmon omelette, my son had eggs Benedict and my daughter had vego amnesia (sorry can''t remember). All good and the coffee was... More

Loved the food and the staff, I loved everything about this chilled out little place, including the retro style plates they serve the food on. Its a place you could sit and read in all day, while enjoying nourishing food and great coffee.

Been there twice (once for breakfast and another for lunch), and this place doesn't disappoint. I had tried the CSC waffles and Pork Sword, and they were pretty awesome. Their coffee tasted good too, although it was a little on a colder side on my second visit. the staff are friendly and provide great customer service too. Definitely worth a... More

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

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.
