This cafe was near our hotel and I read that they had fresh juice which I was struggling to find in Tasmania! Turns out they only had fresh orange or apple but it was still nice. The service was fantastic. I had the hot cakes with raspberry, stewed apples and salted caramel sauce. They were really good but there was... More

This place is a little unusual as it is a mix of a restaurant and laundry with retro decor and finishes. Very popular and well known. A good extensive menu and terrific food. The eggs are great as is the French toast. Lunch is also available. Fun place to do breakfast.

Although it was very busy and we had to put our name on a waiting list, we didn't wait long for a table. Staff were friendly and helpful with the menu. Great choices of food, large portions and very tasty too. The coffee was very good also. Will definitely be back when next in Hobart.

From the moment I walked into this cafe, I loved the quirkiness of the setting, with spinning dryers and washers in the next room. The coffee was great and the brekky delicious and generous. I returned to this cafe the next afternoon for a delicious almond, choc and raspberry cake topped with marscapone cheese and another lovely coffee. A must... More

Recommended, the coffee was great and the staff friendly and helpful. Went back twice so pleased with what we had. The highlight though was the pistachio, ricotta and lemon cake; yum.

Stopped here twice for a relax and a decent coffee after recommendion. The coffee very good, friendly service and a pistachio, ricotta and lemon cake worthy of a review on it's own.

A nice spot and an ok menu but overpriced and service is slow and surly. Have been a couple of times with friends and their refusal to perform the simple task of splitting a bill has been a major hassle: either someone shouts or take it in turns to go off and hunt for a distant ATM. Won't bother again.

Very peaceful sitting in the open space in the area at back of Salamanca Place. The large, covered outdoor area is very pleasant to sit at, and a little less noisy than the smaller inside area (although I found the inside not very noisy at all). We had the fruit with freeze dried raspberries (yum) and the granola. Both excellent,... More

I have visited this cafe 3 times now and have been very pleased with the food on every occasion. My go to is the avocado toast, never a let down! I have always enjoyed my food, however some of the people I have dined with haven't so I guess it depends on you Oder. Definitely a cute little cafe to... More
