Great spot for breakfast

Had nice coffee and spinach and feta pancakes for breakfast which kept me going all day. Plenty of choice on the breakfast menu. Friendly service and reasonable prices.

Loved the retro color scheme, snappy service and farm fresh Tasmanian fare. I opted for the savory spinach, Parmesan cheese, caramelized onion pancakes served with fresh tomato compote and was not disappointed.

Yum! Great food, great service, great atmosphere. Ticks all boxes. Go there! Sitting outside was a bit chilly on a frosty Hobart morning, but there is plenty of seating inside, if you're patient.

Spent days looking for a morning meal whilst on holiday. Brekki here was the best that Hobart had to offer. Highly recommended food. Coffee :6/10 for the soy , parklane espresso was better each time. Brekki : 8/10 only lost a point due to minor delay(busy morning!)and the fact that there was no avocado??! Atmosphere: 8/10 , retro decor, cool... More

This has to be the best and most reasonably affordable place to have breakfast in Hobart. The serves are great, the food is delicious and the staff are so very friendly and relaxed. We loved it and will always eat breakfast there when we go back. The hot cakes are absolutely delicious - a must have with your breakfast. We... More

Always some interesting food combinations here at Machine. Dishes are hearty and generous. Good choice from eggs to soup and burgers (huge vegeburger). Not super special food but, in my experience, it has been a solid performer for a nice, casual meal over many years. Tables inside and outside on Salamanca Square. Definitely worth giving it a try. It can... More
