I have visited Ginger Brown, located in South Hobart, on a few occasions, and would thoroughly recommend it. As a solo traveller I have always received a friendly welcome and felt more than comfortable eating or drinking here. The communal tables are a nice idea, as is the supply of newspapers. Staff are always friendly and accommodating, food choices are... More

We stopped here for a quick bite to each. We had lamb salad and a burrito bowl and it was simply delicious! Coffee was great and the service was super friendly.

Went here last weekend for breakfast and it was really good. Very busy and we had to wait around ten minutes for a table but it was well worth it. Great coffee. Great eggs and relish. The type of food that you don't talk while eating because your enjoying it too much.

I went for breakfast to ginger brown with a couple of friends after we did a four day hike, so the hunger was large. The menu was rich with creative options. Tasted amazing,and the service was excellent.

What a find! We absolutely loved stopping off here on our way up to the Mount Wellington Pinnacle. So many wholesome and delicious things to choose from their menu and they serve an excellent coffee too. Super friendly staff rounded off a perfect visit.

Discovered this place through recommendation by a friend. I have been advised to book in advance, it's usually crazy busy. They have a good selection of breakfast in the menu to choose from. I ordered the beef brisket omellet and it was delicious. Good portion of food with compatible price. Will definitely be back for coffee and more food.

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
