We had a large group of 8 for brunch and they went out of their way to fit us in on a very busy Sunday morning. Lovely food and very nice staff.

Very unassuming from the street with its stealth black paint job. My wife and I are not familiar with North Hobart, so we were strolling up the road looking for a breakfast spot. The only reason I spotted it from across the road was a single patron and his dog enjoying a coffee on your typical cafe chair. We walked... More

This was once a reliable place for a relaxed meal. Sadly it no longer resembles the hub it was. The calimari was chewy and inedible. The desserts (mud cake and cheese cake) were served straight from the freezer ~ so inedible too. The waitress was friendly but had no idea. My drinks were taken before I had finished with them....

The staff here were very friendly and very easy going. We took a while to order but this was not a bother to the staff. Our drinks and meals came out quickly and we're delicious.

Get yourselves to a Barista course pronto. Your coffee's and other hot drinks are so inconsistent, ranging from cold to lukewarm, milk to almost coffee and sometimes just a cup of froth. Ugh, so over this place. So many chances but your staff just don't get it.

This little place is a North Hobart institution. Great atmosphere, friendly staff, and the food is good. It just needs a bloody good razz up. Seriously, the menu hasn't changed for a long time, they SO need to mix it up a bit. True, for a visitor to Hobart, this doesn't apply, I highly recommend it as a great little... More

Small serve of food for table of 5 eating brunch. Some of us didn't get enough food for a meal and ate when we got home. Just disappointed with the small portions and menu choices. Poor value and won't go again. Service was great and love the decor.

We popped in for a quick dinner before an appointment. I ordered burger for $15 and it was very disappointing. It was an average size (not big at all) and consisted of mostly bread with a bland meat pattie, tiny amount of melted cheese, a bit of salad (aka lettuce) and a tiny amount of sauce. I had to ask...

Still a cosy place to visit and staff were friendly but I think the food has gone downhill. Dishes we ate were not well balanced, a bit greasy and lacking in flavour. Enjoyed the wine by the glass from the blackboard. Would probably go again for a drink, but give the food a miss.
