The fact that you need a booking for breakfast on a Saturday gives you a big hint that something good is happening here! Busy, "buzzing" cafe with a communal table where solo diners can have a delicious coffee while checking their emails. Huge selection of breakfast catering for GF, DF etc. Coffee here is one of the best anywhere. Love... More

We visited the female factory and asked the staff were would be a nice place for a late lunch. This establishment was recommended and was just down the road fortunately, as we were heading to Swansea. A quirky establishment however that is a compliment. Our waitress had "attitude" or I could say "swagger" and again that is a compliment as... More

Excellent coffee and brilliant service. Scrambled eggs on sourdough ciabatta very nice. A bit noisy but that is part of the charm.

I took my friend out for her birthday lunch today. I called to book yesterday and was pleased to hear they took bookings for two people. The place was bustling upon arrival but we were quickly seen to and seated with a drinks order. I ordered a soy latte which was perfect and my friend ordered an organic cola which... More

Ginger Brown might be tucked away up in South Hobart but is well worth the walk drive or bus trip. The service is impecable the food superb and the atmosphere warm and welcoming. If there is a down side it would be the need to book because of its popularity.

Popped in here after a recommendation but I do suggest booking, it's busy. Quirky decor for a nice relaxed atmosphere and great staff who are super friendly. Beautiful freak menu that is very reasonably priced!
