Was very disappointed. We all had Devonshire Teas. The scones fell apart when the jam and cream were placed on them. They seem to have been heated up and when they cooled you couldn't pick them up. Needed a spoon to do so. The group...More

Great breakfast destination, such a peaceful locale with garden. Probably shouldn’t give the secret away for the locales! Yummy eggs Benedict on salmon instead of bacon and a croquette on the side!

We went for a lunch and we did really like it. Good food, nice place, good service. They offer excellent salads and their coffee is high quality stuff. Reasonable prizes. They don't have parking lot.

Discovered this gem on my second last day in Hobart, and ended up going back the next day for exactly the same breakfast! The scrambled eggs were just incredible and the bacon (ask for it crispy!) was to die for. Great coffee, nice ambience... really...More

Have been for lunch a few times. The food has been excellent. They know their flavours and a good mix of items on the menu. Located in the Sandy Bay shopping precinct close to many amenities.
