Can't go wrong here. Food is always spectacular with enticing daily specials. Coffee really good, and service is super friendly. The staff really make you feel welcome. Keep up the good work guys!

Definitely the best coffee we could find in Hobart. Love the farm/seasonal food to table concept of this place. Stopped by for breakfast and was not disappointed. The baked eggs and toastie of the day were delicious.

This place has a deserved reputation. Food was fabulous. Nice people and a cool vibe. The eggs were knockout and the chia seed and fruit bowl was delicious. Great coffee - who could ask for more?

We ordered coffee and Ratatouille. The Ratatouille had some nice flavours and was served with a delicious piece of bread, however it had long threads of leak or spring onion that we could not cut and found hard to swallow. A large amount of zucchini topped with an egg, somewhat disappointing for the price. Our coffee was burnt and bitter.... More

What a gem this small bakery is. The breads are outstanding, my favourite being the light rye, just like a good German rye. So happy they are now baking in Devonport, a 30 minute drive from home, but happy to make the journey.

I tried both and can confirm they were delicious! The coffee was great also, a really lovely flavour. The staff are bright and happy. This is a... More

Went there for breakfast after reading how excellent it was. The name gives it away, it is small and as such space to move is tight. That is expected. What was unexpected was the noise. With the place about 3/4 full, with people getting take away orders etc, it really wasn't a great environment for a relaxing breakfast. On occasion... More

I have had the good fortune to eat here 3 times this year and enjoyed every mouthful. Rustic style café, great for breakfast and lunch. Staff are excellent.
