Had our last breakfast in Hobart here as it was highly recommended. While the scrambled eggs were very well made and the free range bacon tasty the coffee was weak and tasteless. If you're looking for a great coffee, try elsewhere.

Recent stay in Hobart, we were recommended to go to Machine Laundry Cafe by a friend. Went for breakfast, and were immediately attended to even though there were no seats available, but never fear within a few minutes we had a outside table,and several after that a cosy inside table. Had a great coffee, large serve of porridge - which... More

Busy retro cafe that still maintains a fast turnaround service. Meals and drinks - stunning. Additionally convenient for those needing to do their laundry.

Great lunch in a funky atmosphere. It was a busy cafe which is always a great sign. Service was super friendly and attentive. I ordered the Fat Boy and wasn't disappointed. A generous serving size, good value for money and made with fresh ingredients. The only minor downfall was that the coffee was luke warm, which was a surprise. Perhaps... More

This is a brightly coloured cafe with a nice homely feel. Think grandparents who still have their melamine topped tables. I had the roti with herb scrambled egg and chilli jam, my partner the eggs benedict. The food was delicious and the serving sizes generous. Coffee was pretty good too! I would pop in again on a return trip to... More

I love this place - it doesn't matter what day you go or how busy they are, the food is consistently good, the staff are pleasant, and of course the setting is great in Salamanca Square

Machine Laundry is a bright and cheerful cafe in Salamanca Square. We went on a Friday morning and, although it was busy, managed to nab a table next to the counter/coffee machine straight away. There is also seating outside but we didn't feel like braving the cold! Service was quick and friendly. We ordered the french toast with mandarin curd,... More

We got table inside just next to the coffee machine. Coming from Melbourne ... the coffee were ordinary, nothing to brag about. Service was quick and we were in and out quickly. My order matched the expectation (eggs roayle) , though I'd like to spread my own butter instead of being there already. My friend ordered savoury pancake, she liked... More

Very creative menu - we had an indian fusion breakfast of scrambled eggs wrapped in roti and a pancetta bacon pancake. Food was overall good, but room for improvement in the roti/scrambled eggs, which were very sweet and didn't have much contrast in texture (both the roti and eggs were very soft). We also bought a savoury muffin to take... More

The place was packed on a Saturday morning. Rather than wait for a table inside we elected to sit outside and our table captured the sun and we were dressed warmly so it was actually nice to sit outside. Staff are friendly and have great attitudes. Food is not exceptional but does the job.
