Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

So slow, took 50 minutes to get our coffees.. Took an hour and 20 minutes to get our food.. They then forgot one of the peoples meals which was a TOASTED SANDWICH which should take 2 minutes to make but no that took another 30...minutes. The glasses were so dirty and undrinkable.. they had to give us takeaway cups because they were “too busy” to fix the cups. The coffee was absolutely BURNT and terrible. Anyway won’t be back to this place.More

Friendly staff who go the extra mile. Great coffee and delicious food. We went twice in our short trip to Hobart because we loved it so much. Everyone in our group ordered different things and all were really happy with their food.

We went there for breakfast, there was an extensive menu with lots of appealing choices. The staff were super friendly and efficient with a smile on their faces! We had the corn fritters which were fresh and delicious! I would highly recommend, The Dandy Lane...Cafe for breakfast or brunch in the city!More

Super delicious and quick… and great coffee. They have a regular menu plus seasonal specials. We went at breakfast and had their special granola. It came with coconut milk but they were happy to change it to cows milk. Beautifully served and delicious

The breakfast menu is standard but it is served with a difference. The breakfast was served hot and in a timely fashion by friendly staff. The cafe was very clean and the food was reasonably priced

Must must have avo smash. Best we ever had. Mouth watering and truly out of this world. We couldn’t get around to trying anything else.

Dandy Lane was a 2 minute walk from our accommodation so we thought we would give it a go for breakfast. From the get go the service was excellent. Coffee was on point and the menu offered a range of options that didn’t disappoint. Will...be back for another feed soon!More

Great coffee, fresh OJ and friendly warm atmosphere. We had the oats and the zucchini fritters. My wife loved the oats. The fritters were easily the best I've ever had. Great presentation and combo of pickles, lemon, chilli, egg, haloumi and fritters are simply brilliant....Highly recommended.More

Nothing but a shambles 45min no drinks, no breakfast .Order forgotten . Observation of staff coffees left on counter ,not delivered to tables,people coughing over them,if only the customer knew they would not drink. Parking in City on a Sunday is a disgrace meters 30min...and 1 hr.(not Cafe problem) $46 parking fine for no meal or drink at Cafe a bit steep. Sorry guys one thing is to try to look efficient the others is too deliver.More
