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.

Hidden in suburbia, way out of Devonport's town center is this little gem with perfect coffee and a breakfast menu that's consistently yummy through and through. Offering something for everyone, there's the usuals with eggs & bacon, ham or salmon to vegetarian savouries like corn...fritters, and mushrooms on pesto bruschetta - all served on toast from slices of divine Pigeon Hole artisanal bread from Hillstreet Grocer. And sweet options to satisfy the ladies and kids. Pride in food served is also reflected in the cafe's interiors - the extra mile has obviously been taken to aesthetically line walls with art, florals and books... urban cool meets cozy chic highlighted by sunshine streaming through large expanse of windows... with a welcomed option to al fresco dine at front of house lining the sleepy street.More

You can not beat the food in this place, but even better is the service. Vanessa (the manager) always takes my reservation, welcomes us and then cooks us up the amazing food. I can not recommend the corn fritters highly enough, but in saying that,...I have never had a bad meal here! Thanks team Bear!More

This is our go to brunch location. Always friendly and great selections it makes for a consistently good place to eat. I’ve eaten most choices here but if you are into biscuits they sometimes do a red skin biscuit. Give it a crack

Not a bad little restaurant. The staff were friendly and efficient. Was just a bit disappointed by the limited lunch menu. Basically fish and chips, a burger or two and Toasted foccasias or salad. Thank goodness they do all day breakfast as well. What we...had was ok. Wife had the Fish and chips with salad. Fish nice, chips were seasoned so tasty and well cooked but the salad was mostly just leaves with balsamic vinegar... My Grizzly (a big breakfast) was pretty good too. Tried a Tumeric Latte, it tasted "healthy" but an acquired taste I think! Was a good but not great experience.More
