We visited the female factory and asked the staff were would be a nice place for a late lunch. This establishment was recommended and was just down the road fortunately, as we were heading to Swansea. A quirky establishment however that is a compliment. Our waitress had "attitude" or I could say "swagger" and again that is a compliment as... More

Excellent coffee and brilliant service. Scrambled eggs on sourdough ciabatta very nice. A bit noisy but that is part of the charm.

I took my friend out for her birthday lunch today. I called to book yesterday and was pleased to hear they took bookings for two people. The place was bustling upon arrival but we were quickly seen to and seated with a drinks order. I ordered a soy latte which was perfect and my friend ordered an organic cola which... More

Ginger Brown might be tucked away up in South Hobart but is well worth the walk drive or bus trip. The service is impecable the food superb and the atmosphere warm and welcoming. If there is a down side it would be the need to book because of its popularity.

Popped in here after a recommendation but I do suggest booking, it's busy. Quirky decor for a nice relaxed atmosphere and great staff who are super friendly. Beautiful freak menu that is very reasonably priced!

Dropped in for a weekend brekkie when while staying around the corner in hobart. Cafe had a nice feeling to it and it was buzzing with people. We sat at the communal table and got talking with our neighbours which was nice. Coffee and meals were solid - not rock your world - but as an overall experience you'd go... More

My girlfriend and I stayed in Hobart for a week and we went to a different location each day and this was by far the best! Brilliant food, coffee and service. We also went back on the final day it was that good. The only criticism is there is a large table in the middle of the room which can... More
