“great coffee & breakfast”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 30, 2012

We had our first breakfast visit to Environs between xmas & new year with a group of 8, coffee was good, we all chose different breakfasts and there wasn't a complaint about any of them. Service was a little slow but no more than we expected for a large table and peak time. Just the two of us returned last weekend and service was prompt, coffee's delivered in about 5 minutes, food 15, both great presentation and taste. Awesome coffee. Hopefully this standard will continue.

“disappointing”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

I went there for lunch because there was a crowd. Turned out the reason for the crowd was that they were all waiting for their meals to arrive. After 10 minutes, I asked nad was told mine would be ready in 20 minutes. 20 minutes later the meal did arrive but it was not what I had ordered!! The only good point was that they offered to pay for the glass of wine I had consumed whilst waiting.
Pity because it has a nice outdoor area. Maybe just go there for coffee!!

“Good food but disappointing service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed December 21, 2011

We found the menu and food imaginative and very good. Options and pricing was good. This was the 2nd visit - the first was soon after they opened and service then was lacking so went back to try again. Unfortunately, the staff / service hadn't improved. First time the menu was left whilst we had a coffee but staff never came back to take the order. Second visit we had to place one person's order 3 times as it had been forgotten by each staff member. The young man who seemed to be in charge was very busy telling others what to do but failed himself to do it!

“Awesome Staff”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 6, 2011

The staff at Environs should be given an award for the best team in Tassie :)
Polite and helpful.
I enjoyed my latte like no other.

“What a wonderful place!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2011 via mobile

Had the tastiest mushrooms on toast and brilliant coffee and attentive service- all the little things make the difference in this place! "Yes I would like another coffee thank you and my meal is nice!" Thats the kind of service you will get here; I will be back!
