Read reviews this morning and decided to check it out- funky homely decor - friendly service- good menu - great coffee- I had scrambled eggs and bacon with a side of hollandaise which was quite pale but very tasty - would go back

Love this busy little gem in the centre of Hobart. Staff are always welcoming and friendly. A great spot for a quick bite or a more leisurely catch up with friends.

This cafe has amazing food, coffee and staff. Had the French toast which is to die for! The young lady (manager I think) provided some of the best service in town. Very funny too! I will be back!
