“Captured market”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Being in the library building the café has potential customers passing constantly. We found the coffee average and the service the same. Although we did not partake of the food, what was on display looked average as well. I would find somewhere else to give my custom next time in Hobart, I'm sure it will be more appreciated.

Reviewed March 22, 2013

The chai milkshake is a hit. Great lunch fare and very reasonably priced. Borrow a book and start reading!

“Do not go there!!”
Reviewed March 12, 2013

This overpriced little gem is a waste of space. The owner is extremely rude and inconsiderate, the food and coffee are nothing special and did I mention overpriced for the quality. I think they rate themselves a little high. Don't bother going there. There is plenty available elsewhere that is much more satisfying and within walking distance.

“Excellent service”
Reviewed January 6, 2013

I dropped into this cafe after a library visit, on a very hot day, to have lunch. It was a cool airy place to sit. The salad wrap I had was fresh and tasty. Because I am dairy intolerant the manager made me a soy milkshake. Yummmm. Surprisingly good. Glass windows make it a good place to sit and watch the Hobart world go by.
