My partner and I ate at Ginger Brown this morning for Sunday brunch. I had the brisket omelette and a side order of potato cake. Both were excellent in taste and the portion size good. My partner had basic scrambled eggs which he enjoyed. Both dishes were served with homemade sourdough bread. The coffee was tasty and the service prompt... More

After finding this gem, we went 3 days in a row. As soon as we walked in the door, we were greeted with a smile and seated with menu and water (that's if you are lucky enough to get a table). There was a different barista each morning and my coffee was spot on each time (dbl fw and piccolo).... More

Love Ginger Brown. Came here twice in my last visit to Hobart. The meals are fresh and cookies classic retro such as Monte Carlos.

What a magnificent taste sensation. Fresh and spicy. The Kimchi Pancakes definately did not disappoint GB always has a great atmosphere, friendly staff and fabulous coffee. Love the consistency of this suburban cafe.

We called in without a booking as we thought we would be pretty safe, this is a very popular eatery and we were well after the lunch rush. We were only just in luck there were two seats on the shared table so all was good. We ordered lunch and it arrived very promptly along with our coffee's. The toasted... More

Don't let the gluten free/Vegetarian atmosphere fool you, this place knows meat as they know grain. Amazing coffee (barista should get a raise!) and outstanding meals. We had the brisket special and the pork omelette. Both the best meals we've had for breakie in months. Service was excellent as well, friendly, with a smile and knowledgeable of their product. Well... More

It looked reasonably uninspiring from the outside but inside it was retro with a great vibe, good coffee, friendly staff and great breakfast, in fact probably one of the best breakfasts I had in Tasmania. Highly recommended

Regularly bring friends here to enjoy one of Hobart's best coffee/dining stops. A local favourite. Im sure you could also impress your real girlfriend here too. Great spot to stop when visiting Mount Wellington.

We tried Ginger brown on our first morning in Hobart, we ordered a take away coffee & some bliss balls to take on our road trip. We were amazed by the delicious coffee. It was located only a couple of minutes up from where we were staying. We ended up having coffee there the next day, then on days 3... More
