“Hip breaky!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2014

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 was yum on a cold winter's day. Funky menu choices, great music and efficient service.

“Retro cafe with amazing food and service to match.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 19, 2014

Busy retro cafe that still maintains a fast turnaround service.

Meals and drinks - stunning.

Additionally convenient for those needing to do their laundry.

“Fat Boy lived up to it's name!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 18, 2014

Great lunch in a funky atmosphere. It was a busy cafe which is always a great sign. Service was super friendly and attentive. I ordered the Fat Boy and wasn't disappointed. A generous serving size, good value for money and made with fresh ingredients. The only minor downfall was that the coffee was luke warm, which was a surprise. Perhaps I should have asked for it extra hot but the coffee was good nonetheless. Definitely will return.

“Yummo”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 12, 2014

This is a brightly coloured cafe with a nice homely feel. Think grandparents who still have their melamine topped tables. I had the roti with herb scrambled egg and chilli jam, my partner the eggs benedict. The food was delicious and the serving sizes generous. Coffee was pretty good too! I would pop in again on a return trip to Hobart!

“always great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 8, 2014

I love this place - it doesn't matter what day you go or how busy they are, the food is consistently good, the staff are pleasant, and of course the setting is great in Salamanca Square
