Our family of 5 had breakfast here on both of our mornings in Hobart. The staff were friendly and efficient, the food was delicious, coffee good, and a really nice interior with windows overlooking the wharf.

Lovely little cafe on the harbour. It has become a favorite place of ours, over last 3 visits to Hobart, for Coffee and especially their Curried Scallop pies. Best pies in Tassie!

This place is super cute, in a fabulous location with delish food and coffee. We stopped in for brunch as soon as we arrived for our first trip to Hobart. Sat upstairs which was quieter than downstairs. Would recommend and definitely come again!
