Shocking service

The food was pleasant, however the service was shocking. Very rude and not friendly at all which ruined my experience. Would not go there again.

A local recommended this place. Worst breakfast of our 10 day trip. Cool vibe but boring options nothing special. I had scrambled eggs they were good & the toast was from pigeon hole & good. Be aware lots of sauce on eggs benny may want it on the side.

Had the pleasure of eating breakfast at this ripping little Hobart cafe and was extremely impressed. The coffee was on point, a strong flat white that had no hint of bitterness at all. The breakfast selection was pretty standard but the quality was there. I would definitely come back next time I'm in town. I might even bring my dirty... More

Waited to be served and went inside to the counter to pay and order coffees. Coffees were good but unable to order food as majority finished at 3pm and we were not long after that. Nice location and filled up soon after we arrived popular spot. Menu looked nice but unfortunately couldn't try it!

Couldnt resist it after reading the reviews, which are indeed praise well deserved. It was packed (on a Monday morning) and we asked to share a table outside. Lovely brekkie and generous - scrambled eggs on toast with sides of bacon and tomato were ample for two. Great coffee ans people watching, this would be my local if I lived... More

OMG - this seriously was the best breakfast I've ever had! I had the avocado and holloumi with an extra side of beans. They certainly did not scrimp of the portion sizes - even with the sides. Beans were just delicious! This place is the BEST!

Delicious free range bacon and terrific eggs. Yum. Big portions is another place. Busy but didn't have to wait long for a table. Waitress even got me a coffee whilst we were waiting.

This is one of my favourite places to come for a late breaky on days off, always packed inside, service is usually pretty friendly and fast but the food is always spot on. Keep it up dudes
