I got coffee on two occasions. It was very good and the staff were efficient and friendly. They unfortunately put sugar in by mistake this morning. I would have gone back but didn't realise until i was well down the road.

This little gem was our first stop in Tassie after arriving on the Spirit of Tasmania. Great coffee and friendly welcoming staff!! Crispy bacon hit the spot, eggs a little over done. Worth a visit just for the coffee!!

I have previously been rather underwhelmed with this cafe and reflected it In my reviews, however, we went there on Friday night to watch a local band play Creedence, and had a great night.

Great coffee and friendly service. One of the best if not the best place for a coffee in Devonport. My wife had the white chocolate and raspberry cheesecake and loved every mouthful. Certainly a place we will continue to return to when we ate in town.

Fresh off the boat, I was inspired by a funny yet awful review of Laneway and wanted to see if it really was so bad and why all of the other TA reviewers had got it so wrong. Whilst not visible from the main road we quickly located Laneway and grabbed a table overlooking the coffee counter. Industrial cool meets... More
