“Grand appearance and Tasty food do not matter without Humanity”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2013

It is all there: beautiful furniture, yummi food, superb teas etc, but when it comes to humanity and kindness this place has a long way to go ... When during recent Australian Wooden Boat Festival I approached Dome Manager and asked if it could be possible to obtain some support for the Russian crew of 'Rusich' (a replica of viking boat which arrived from .... Russia !!! to Hobart for the festival). The formality and bureaucracy of her reply simply shocked me. It was something like 'I am not a senior staff member to make a decision. I cannot help you'. It was said in the middle of a room full of food, tasty snacks, delicious condiments, prepacked butter, jams, honey etc etc... Well, one thing I know for sure this young girl does not belong to Hobart as it was proofed again and again by many other Hobartians and small Hobart businesses

“The best in Hobart CBD”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 27, 2013 via mobile

Great for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The place is so classic and offers a tea selection as well as coffee and company. Prices are affordable and the atmosphere is great.

“Comfortable spot for a good coffee.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012 via mobile

We popped in here for a hot coffee. We sat in the comfy arm chairs by the window and watched the holiday Hobart life go by. Very cosy on a cold summers day.
