Eggs Royale were very tasty

Very good breakfast, nice coffee and friendly, no-nonsense, efficient service. Quirky without being irritating.

Cute and funky decor but food is good honest food, ver fresh and well prepared and presented. Lactose intolerance was not a problem at all and my choice adapted accordingly which was much appreciated. However, there were plenty of other options if the cheese could not have been left out. Servings were more than adequate so you won't leave hungry.... More

We went to this café for brunch with a variety of dietary requirements (gluten free, vegetarian, fussy eater!) and a broad range of ages, and every thought the food was great. There were a lot of options, and the staff were nice and the food arrived quickly.

Great location and an extensive menu, with plenty of options for this vegetarian. The food was beautiful, very filling and generous portions. Unfortunately the service was a bit patchy - the first waitress was quite surly and perhaps was just having an off day. She also got our drinks order mixed up, which was quickly corrected by another (thankfully friendlier)... More

As an experienced and passionate breakfaster of Melbourne, I was surprised to find that this little gem blew all my past breakfasts out of the water. Both me and my boyfriend were stoked. They taught me what a mushroom meal could be! Try the magic mushie.... so good.

We ate here twice during our stay in Hobart. A great retro style cafe with lovely, helpful staff. The cakes are fantastic and the coffee and drinks are worth trying too. We didn't have any of the light meals on offer but they certainly looking really good. Yes, definitely worth a visit and take your laundry bag to if you... More

Love this place. There's actually washing machines so you can wash your bits and pieces while eating. Fabulous breakfasts. We had the Eggs Royale: two perfectly poached eggs with hollandaise, spinach and caramelised onions, smoked salmon on scrumptious sour dough bread. Great coffee. What more could you asked for?

Machine is one of the best places for breakfast in Salamanca - their muffins, which are large, are scrumptuous and they serve what i think is consistently the best eggs benedict around!
