This is the place to go if you want to feel the Hobart vibe. This is the where to politicians, journos, writers, students go to find each other, to get warm over coffee and to celebrate all things cerebral. This is where you meet up with people. Patrons sit around in the steamy winter warmth and buzzy atmosphere doing all the things that go with coffee: checking out Face Book, reading the newspaper, doing a crossword, cutting a deal. We heard a couple of women plan a whole social enterprise campaign in the time it took to have a coffee and read Spectrum. How cool is that! The owner says he has been here for 21 years and the whole concept was in response for a yearning for 50s cultural memorabilia: thus the decor and the feel of the place. Located on the Salamanca waterfront strip, this has to be one of Hobart's iconic coffee shops. This is the coffee shop that all student coffee shops aspire to be. This is a coffee shop that poets want to hang out in. This is a coffee shop where creative inspiration is in the air that you breathe. The menu doesn't challenge, the choices are appropriately simple. You can have a drink with that. The coffee is good. We love everything about Retro.
