“Amazing food. Service a bit slow”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2013 via mobile

You have to try the baked eggs. Yum.......
I went there on Easter Saturday and the staff were friendly but the place was really busy therefore it took awhile for our food.

Probably my best meal in hobart

“Underwhelming”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2013 via mobile

Heard really good things.
Sat in window seat both facing window (like bar at maccas).
Couldn't find anything on menu
Wine list was overpriced and crap
Left having a mouthful of sparkling water and got charged $9.90 for the privilege.

“Service poor no value”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

Service poor and no value Great position and that's where it stops
Coffee cold and it took one hour for a simple scrambled egg and forgotten Chorizo
I am not trying to be negative but if u want to make a customer wait for an hour and charge premium make it worthwhile
It could have been so much nicer being so close to market
Expensive in my opinion

“Great atomesphere for breakfast!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 29, 2013 via mobile

Felt really lucky we found this place on our morning stroll. Sat at a big communal table read the paper and drank good coffee. Service was slow, but it was busy enough to understand why it was slow. They got our coffees out quickly, (phew!) And when our food came they did apologise for the wait.
Everything tasted great!!!!

“Hobart's best dining”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 22, 2013

The food is always exquisite here - great service and its open Monday nights - hard to find in Hobart. A real showcase of Tassie's finest produce. And delicious ciabatta.
