We have tried many cafes in our extended holiday, but keep coming back to Criterion. In my opinion, it is the best coffee in Hobart but the food options are great and the service is wonderful. We will return again and again.

Recently had the biggest bowl of the best tasting porridge. Even with the help of my partner did not get to the bottom of the bowl. Thumbs up from me. 👍🏻 Coffee is also some of the best in Hobart and in a big cup! Not like some others I could mention.

I love this little gem in the city. The food is always fresh and amazing quality. The service is always so warm and friendly, our waiter was amazing and very helpful. I love the vibe here, it's busy and buzzing and a great cafe to share with friends and family, or to enjoy on your own. Highly recommended.

Breakfast any way you like it plus a few unique options like the jerk chicken! Super tasty and very healthy and it doesn't hurt the staff are friendly. Worth a visit if in Hobart just off the Main Street so not too overcrowded......don't worry the coffee is fabulous too!

Very congenial little café where one can eat out on the pavement on a not-too-busy-street. Good service and first class food. If you wonder what a "pork sword" is, or a "biggie smalls", try eating them. Absolutely delicious and quite normal fare ! Just for the record, the first was a spicy "pulled pork" affair with whatever and to be... More

A local store owner recommended this cafe to us. It offered a relaxed atmosphere and friendly service. Our meals were tasty and filling. Would have dined there again during our Hobart visit but time did not permit.

The most Devine breakfasts, I had the corn fritters and they were fabulous with an amazing salsa. Another day we had eggs and bacon on sourdough also very good.
