We ate lunch while in the Yacht Race Village at the Zero Davey Cafe pop up cafe for the end of the Sydney to Hobart Yacht race and loved it. We had a scallop pie and washed it down we cider from a nearby stall....Just delicious. We sat on the seating provided and listened to entertainment. The pastry was so light and thin and the filling lovely.More

Had a quick brekkie there one morning before a tour. The coffee was good, the fruit salad with yoghurt decent, and the sandwich quite good. Not the most enticing place in Hobart but good good-quality food and coffee and friendly staff.

Popped in this morning for a quick breakfast after staying at Zero Davey Apartments - we’ve been here for breakfast before and it was fine so not sure if they have changed chef or management? Anyway, we ordered two avocado toasts. The menu promises “half...an avocado on sourdough”. What we got was a very thin smearing of that avocado spread in a tube, on two bits of bread. You can taste the lemon in it - I eat this stuff all the time when I’m feeling lazy, however it’s not what you expect when you hand over $12 to a cafe. What we received was probably what I would expect had I paid $6 or $7 like you do with other spreads on toast. Not a hint of real avocado. Brekkie all up was $35, a complete rip off compared to the delicious $10 egg and bacon roll and coffee offered by Jam Packed cafe just a short walk around the corner.More

As the cafe was incorporated into the hotel we used it a few times but only for breakfast. Service was excellent, good atmosphere and food was good. Had morning papers for reading and good coffee to go with the meal

Met for lunch with friend. Good choice of mostly inexpensive dishes. Pasta was good as was toasted focaccia, all followed by coffees. Satisfying on a cool Spring day. Recommended.

I used to pop in here whenever I had a class at uni, and would usually get a nice sandwich or drink. The staff are really friendly and it's nice for either eating in or for take away.

After sampling a number of breakfasts in Hobart, the eggs Benedict served here well and truly deserves an honourable mention. Very nicely cooked and presented. Sit and enjoy a paper or watch the world go by from the window. Nice and convenient to local hotels...without having to walk up the hill into the city. Generally not overcrowded which is nice too if you like your space in the morning.More

Attempted to buy 4 takeaway coffees at JamPacked around the corner but left due to very rude woman who insisted it would take more than 20 minutes to make 4 coffees (it was more the delivery of this than the fact it would take 20+...mins - she was SO rude!) Instead I went around the corner to Zero Davey and had a very different experience. Staff were inviting and friendly, and happily made my 4 takeaway coffees without any fuss. Good coffee with friendly and efficient service.More

Zero Davey Cafe was just around the corner from where I was staying. I popped in there for a coffee the first afternoon I was there and the latte was very good. Staff member was friendly and I was greeted when I walked in. Whilst...there, I perused the menu and decided to come back for breakfast, before hitting Salamanca market on the Saturday. I had another very good latte and the Double Deluxe Roll, consisting of fried egg, 2 rashers of bacon, cheese, tomato and a yummy chutney. The roll was huge and the perfect texture, not too crunchy or too soft, just right. Both times I visited it was quiet, which is a bonus to me. I’m not a huge fan of noisy places for breakfast, I need to ease into the day! I will definitely come back the next time I’m in Hobart and would recommend Zero Davey cafe.More
