“Best Coffee in Hobart”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Everyone has different taste in coffee - but I LOVE the coffee here. I have never had to add sugar, which is the way I decide if a coffee is 'good' or not.
Hubby and I have breakfast here regularly (2-3 times a month), and coffee 2-3 times a week.
Mike and his staff are ALL fantastic. My family all get a handshake or cuddle from Mike every time we come in, and everyone here is great. They remember how we like our coffee, and have it started by the time we open our mouths.
Yes, this cafe is different from what it used to be - but I love it and will keep going back.

“Seems to have gone downhill”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013 via mobile

This little Hobart institution used to provide one of the most consistently decent feeds in the city. It is unfortunate now that the cafe seems to be a bit hit and miss. Everything sounds good on the well-priced menu, but by way of example their chicken quesadilla was dry, bland and completely failed to satisfy. The breakfasts looked pretty good on the plate, so maybe stick to the all-day breakfast menu instead of venturing to the lunch menu.

“Disappointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 15, 2011 via mobile

The food was dry and over-microwaved, and the service was ordinary. We'd heard good things, but perhaps they'd changed hands.

“Best breakfast ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2009

This is my favourite place to eat breakfast. It is a little 30-40 seater cafe. Their savoury breakfast is amazing. I like to wash it down with a rasberry shake. Good value. Pretty random atmosphere and decor. Always busy. Once you go, you will go back again and again.
