Stumbled across this little cafe when looking for a coffee and were so impressed by the menu we stayed for lunch. The corn fritters were yum and huge to boot

This café was recommended within an hour of arriving in Hobart. It is very central, and just around the corner from where I was staying. The breakfast was so good that it became the breakfast place of choice for the duration of my stay. The porridge was delicious and appreciated on cold mornings, as were the corn fritters, and the...

From the time my fiance and I walked in, we have had nothing but awesome service, great coffee and awesome food. The interior of the business is very Retro and laid back. Will definitely be back. Will spread the word and bring my business customers here also.

Went here for lunch and had the porridge with berries on top, it was tasty and really filling! I had two long blacks that seemed to appear mere seconds after ordering them. Food and coffees were great, and the service was too. :)

We wanted to have a nice breakfast with my friend and her one year old (who was totally well-behaved while we were there). We were very disappointed with the place. There was no atmosphere and both our waitresses were very unfriendly&pushy. We almost felt like an inconvenience for them. The food was ordinary and the presentation terrible (they didnt even...
