This review is for Miss Jane- my daughters and I have just returned back home and just can't rave enough about our lovely meal. Great food, beautifully presented, wonderful flavours- excellent service staff. A new Gem, that we will be doing lots of visits too.

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!

Dropped in for a weekend brekkie when while staying around the corner in hobart. Cafe had a nice feeling to it and it was buzzing with people. We sat at the communal table and got talking with our neighbours which was nice. Coffee and meals were solid - not rock your world - but as an overall experience you'd go... More

My girlfriend and I stayed in Hobart for a week and we went to a different location each day and this was by far the best! Brilliant food, coffee and service. We also went back on the final day it was that good. The only criticism is there is a large table in the middle of the room which can... More

Deceiving from the outside. Pleasantly surprised. Great retro furnishings. Staff very pleasant. Menu was amazing, as was the coffee. A semi hidden treasure. Lucky locals!
