Happened to be in town on a Saturday around lunch time, thought we would try this out for lunch, big mistake. We sat outside in the sun, outside table was dirty, water glasses provided were not clean, water jug not clean, food very average, I could do better at home. Both waitresses were pleasant however one was was wearing gym... More

Step through the door to peace and quiet a lovely oasis on the middle of city. Not sure if whilst I have been away this Cafe has changed owners. There wasn't quite the same atmosphere Whilst the menu is limited,the luncheon menu has dishes which are light and wholesome. The waiter was very friendly and welcoming though we did feel... More

Have been coming here for years & always enjoyed the food & coffee. A good quiet place to be able to meet friends & have a chat & be heard.

Convenient location, nice ambience but the menu and the food doesn't do it for me. No issues with the quality of the food or the service. Just its all so so. Nothing stands out and grabs your attention. Its not somewhere I would go back to when there are other better café options in the city.

This place would have to be the best choice in the city centre of Hobart for breakfast. Well set out and inviting with excellent friendly service. Good breakfast selection. Located opposite Myre in Liverpool street. Although I just had breakfast the lunch menu looked great as well.

Visited for breakfast with my lovely wife and whilst we both had something light, were unanimous in our praise for the excellent friendly service and good food. My wife had the fruit granola and I opted for eggs on toast with house relish. Both simple offerings but very tasty accompanied with a glass of delightful freshly squeezed OJ and excellent... More

The interior of the building is great, anice light filled space. Great cafe style lunch food, we had soup from specials board and smashed avocardo. Best dish is the sweet potato fries/chips!

And even better milkshakes, food looked like typical cafe fare - no surprises. Very friendly and prompt service. Coffee made with love rather than attitude

My partner and I revisited after not having been there in over a year expecting to be met with friendly staff and delicious food in a cute setting that we once were. We were sad to find disinterested staff who left customers waiting when the cafe was near empty and food that was in part tasty but largely inedible

In prominent Hobart CBD location, this tucked away spot served pretty standard cafe fare. Hit the spot on a cool Autumn day. Had run out of the lamb I particularly wanted and should have let us know at time of seating. For that they later apologised. Would probably score higher otherwise.
