This cafe is consistently one of the best spots for breakfast and lunch. I have been coming here for years and have never been disappointed. Between by husband and I we have eaten our way through pretty much the entire menu! Highly recommended.

We met up with friends with two young children for coffee on a Saturday morning. The place was packed and there was already a waiting list for tables, but our friends had been before and knew what to do! They asked for the cushion pads for the benches beside the cafe that look onto the adjoining giant chess board and... More

Excellent food and coffee, fast friendly service and a great atmosphere. The most delicious and varied breakfast menu available all day, eggs are always cooked to perfection which is a big vote winner with me. Was a must everytime I visited Hobart and now I live here I'm super happy to become a regular. Be prepared to wait a bit... More

Breakfast was good with a variety of options to choose from. Coffee was good. Fairly priced. Quirky atmosphere. Would go back.

Coffee was great and delivered within minutes of my arrival. Breakfast was delish. Went back for a second coffee. I'll be back

Found this on last day. Nice staff who work very hard as its busy. Good value and fast service, delicious poached eggs. Kids can play with big chess pieces while you eat.

Now a Hobart staple this is a great little cafe for enjoying brunch on a Saturday. The service is great and the setting is cool and relaxed. Beware the muffins are huge, but delicious.

Called in for a light bite & were told that the muffins were large. We thought we would order one each anyway. They were the largest we had ever seen! Delicious savoury muffin & the coffee was excellent. Doggie bag provided!

On our visit to Hobart and Mona, this place became like our base for breakfast and afternoon snacks. The waiters are very cool and discrete, but generous with their time and service. The food was exquisite, I had the best scrambled eggs in a long time, and the coffee is to die for. It gets quite busy, so you might... More
