Great Food and Value....

Brilliant concept, you can do your laundry while you have a well made coffee and or eat from their delicious menu.. We had breakfast and were really happy with the food and best coffee in Hobart...

Popped by for some takeaway pick-me-up afternoon caffeine fix and left satisfied, refuelled and wanting more! Beautiful tasting coffee, bold yet not overbearing, "sweet" aftertaste and right balance of milk and coffee to bring out the full flavours and aroma. Nice job guys!

Found plastic in my food. I may have ate a little bit as it was inside my sandwich. Service was also pretty awful. I don't get why this place has such good reviews. I was really disappointed. It was packed and I don't know why.

We had two breakfasts there when staying in Hobart - the food and coffee were delicious. The place is fairly crowded in the morning so one should be prepared to sit outside and/or wait in a line.

Breakfasted there every day, good range of egg dishes - tried a different one each time. Our international guests very enthusiastic about food. Very busy, but interesting outlook on Salamanca Square.

This place should not be missed by any rational adult. The food is interestin gall made on site and unique. The portions are heroic, the coffee absolutley perfect and the wait staff efficient and charming. Drop what you're doing and go now.

Great place for people watching and right next door to a magic shop that sells whirly-gigs and science games and odd stuff that is possibly meant for children but is significantly directed towards adults! Good coffee at the cafe. Friendly, if chaotic, service. If you can score a seat in the liminal outdoor/indoor area you get to watch staff frenzy... More

Lots of staff meant quick and efficient service, I had an amazing veggie scramble and came back the next day for another long black... the barista is a genius.

we had breakfast here and the food was awesome. In addition this place has a bit of soul and buzz. It is simple but funky. The staff are ALL very friendly, efficient and happy. Thanks for a great start to our day. Also brilliant coffee!
