Had breakfast at this gem!! Wouldn't normally have picked this cafe but after good reviews on TripAdvisor we decided to give it a go. After being in Hobart for three days we were struggling to find a decent coffee. Our faith was restored when we found this place. Oh and you must try the mushrooms👍🏻

Excellent service. Good food. Coffee good. Music a little annoying at breakfast time. Will eat here again.

Loved the idea of being able to do some laundry and have a pretty decent coffee as my clothes got a much needed wash and dry.

Landed here on a weekend and yes, it was busy. No problem getting a table and was able to order reasonably quickly. Given how busy it was I was impressed that the food arrived in a good time. In the meantime I was able to enjoy a good strong coffee. Food was plentiful and tasty. While all this is going... More

Busy, hip and a little out of the way. Great food and a good vibe. If you go on a weekend you may have to wait for a table but that is usually the case in most places if its popular. Do your laundry next door if you feel a need.

Had breakfast at this cafe (twice) as it was so good the first time. Not your average breakfast menu, with lots of choice. Good service, and appreciated the refill on my teapot!

The best scrambled eggs, fab decor and good coffee. We are both vegetarian but there were plenty of options for us. The staff are friendly and happy and the service is good.

Sadly our great expectations from our first experience, was not repeated. Staff were fantastic and friendly. The order was Eggs benedict and the Fat boy...sadly both meals served cold. I cannot stand cold/lukewarm food.

Thank prozac
