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.

New owners and great food, they are really passionate about the food. Unfortunately the coffee isn't as good as it used to be, was one of my favourites previously for coffee with the old owners.

Today was a let down. The guy who I beloeve is not the owner seemed stressed. Long wait, wrong order, barely warm small sausage rolls, uncooked egg, dirty grill plate. Ummmm.... customer service and quality of food far out weighs offering someone their money back...to make them happy. Whatever happened today, I am hoping it wont continue. Yesterday was amazing, but today was not somehwere I woupd re-visit.More

Very disappointing, coffee was bitter, flat white served in a glass even though asked for cup, toastie was ok, tables not wiped and cutlery half washed. Friendly owner but person serving at counter lacked people skills, not friendly. Menu seemed to have variety but general...cleanliness put us off ordering other options. Doubt we’ll go again and give it a thumbs down 👎.More

This was my go to coffee place, but since being sold the coffee is not consistent and when ordering hot chocolates for my kids they had ran out of hot choc powder so the kid serving gave us warm milk which we discovered after leaving....Very disappointed that the coffee is not to a good standard like it used to be, weak and then the next day it will be bitter.More

A good experience straight off the boat for breakfast: very friendly staff and patrons; nice, welcoming venue; good hearty breakfasts that cater for glute free; excellent coffee; slightly pricey but worth it.

A more compact version of Laneway’s take on laneway cafes in Melbourne, Playfish has a constant weekend queue for takeaway coffee - not at all surprising as it’s strongly brewed to perfection. Perfect too is its fresh squeezed man size orange juice. As is its...food - the best spicy chorizo loaded beans with over the stove/oven just cooked eggs in Devonport! And an equally decadent homemade banana bread French toast with very generous serves of deliciously savoury bacon, vanilla ice cream and maple syrup. Adding Playfish to our other breakfast haunts in Devonport: Zest, Laneway and Brown Bear.More

After a long journey on the Spirit or Tasmania, this cafe was a much welcome place to rest and recuperate. Great food and coffee, with a relaxing atmosphere. Highly recommend a visit!

Querky and quite small, this cafe serves wonderful coffee and delicious florentine biscuits. They also have a range of healthy homemade wraps and slices to tempt the taste buds.

My introduction to Playfish was some time ago when my daughter purchased a takeaway capuccino for me from there. I was very pleasantly surprised at how good it was ( I so often avoid buying capuccinos because I find them, with very few exceptions, to...be too weak, tasteless and/or milky for my liking.) Anyway, after that very positive experience, I was looking forward to dining there and finally did, very recently, while holidaying in the Devonport area. What a positive experience lunching at Playfish was! The welcome is warm and genuine, the environment friendly and casual, the menu offers a good variety of options (I loved their pancakes!) and the coffee is superb. I will certainly be visiting Playfish again when next I'm in the vicinity of Devonport.More

Coming to Playfish is like going to a friends house for coffee. It's comfortable the coffee and tea are great, the service attentive without being pushy and I love the relaxed retro/quirky fit out. There's a little Free Library on one wall too, so take...a book to swap! They close at 4pm don't get caught out.More
