I wish I had had time to eat here again! The menu has all of the classic eggs and bacon, but look beyond them (although they looked great!) for some really adventurous choices that are fantastic. I had scrambled egg in roti with a fantastic caramelised chilli ... There are really unusual choices and they looked really good. Would love... More

great coffee and service here. Love the laundry set up - bit different from the others in the area. More like being in Brunswick Street in Melbourne. We didn't have time to eat but the menu looked fantastic for breakfast. Worth a visit for the friendly service alone!

Had the most amazing breakfast at this cafe during my recent visit to Hobart. Great atmosphere, really buzzy and the coffee is sensational!

Went for brunch at a friend'a recommendation. Service was friendly and attentive. Coffee was okay but a noticeably small cup. Food was also okay but not great, was expecting a lot better honestly. "Pancake" was rather dry, toast with the old new eggs too hard, and like others I noticed both meals were quite salty.

What a fun place to dine, one part laundromat and the other part cafe. There is an extensive menu and it is a great place for breakfast. Not only the novelty of the place but also good quality food. A great outdoor seating area when the weather is good.

We enjoyed porridge with poached quince and the house granola with fresh banana and pistachios. The food was delicious and a great alternative to the egg heavy options elsewhere.

Stopped for my coffee break, lapped up the sun and enjoyed the atmosphere. Not sure about the 50c surcharge if spending under $10.

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
