Came here due to recommendations I read online. Greeted by the very friendly wait staff and service was very friendly for a small hide-away cafe. I ordered the Fried Chicken Benedict. It was good but nothing to rave about. Coffee was really good and easily...one of my favourite coffee shops around.More

I ordered the Fried chicken Benedict. Chicken was cooked perfectly, the siracha sauce had a good kick and it is just the correct size meal to share with an extra hashbrown without feeling you're going to burst. The staff are really friendly and the meal...came out quite fast. I must add there coffee is quite good as well and I am very fussy with my coffee. Great little place would recommend :)More

Tasty selection of food with good brunch options. It’s tucked away down a lane so you need to look for it. Friendly service as well. We couldn’t find many other places to eat on a Saturday afternoon so we were lucky to find this…

Best cafe in Hobart. We came back two days in a row. - coffee is amazing -quirky and well flavoured smoothies -amazing menu and food tastes great. Nothing left on the plates when finished. A must visit

So it looks like it’s just a cafe in a uni or office, with some of the tables even in a corridor - but it is actually amazing. It was the perfect place for our hangovers (although there are healthier choices too) with the bacon...crispy, the chicken fried and the hollandaise sriracha-y. How have I not had sriracha hollandaise before?! Really good coffee too. Excellent tunes and friendly staff too.More

Decided to go for our first breakfast in Hobart did not disappoint. My husband had the cornbread which he really enjoyed and I had the mushroom and haloumi burger. Well worth the visit coffee was excellent. Hidden away and not obvious to find. Worth a...visitMore

Went here while on holidays for Mother’s Day Brunch and glad we did. Great food - something for everyone with traditional favourites and some healthier alternative options. Great coffee and staff helpful. Highly recommend.

Where do I start? Although it’s not your typical cafe setting we saw the reviews and decided to give it a try. We were seated in the hallway of what could only be described as a 1970’s school hallway. We thought, this is quirky but...ok. Our waitress came out and she was very friendly. My heavily pregnant wife asked if it was possible to have a toasted cheese sandwich. Our waitress looked somewhat perplexed and said ‘oh no, they are very strict in there. If it’s not on the menu you can’t have it’. Ok I didn’t know that two pieces of bread and a slice of cheese was beyond the capabilities of this chef!! Breakfast burger or it’s aptly named Dirty Burger was nothing to write home about either. On a positive note, the jam was nice.More
