Landed here on a weekend and yes, it was busy. No problem getting a table and was able to order reasonably quickly. Given how busy it was I was impressed that the food arrived in a good time. In the meantime I was able to enjoy a good strong coffee. Food was plentiful and tasty. While all this is going... More

Nice ambience and good food. Service is friendly and reasonably fast. Many shops nearby in which to browse later on.

Busy, hip and a little out of the way. Great food and a good vibe. If you go on a weekend you may have to wait for a table but that is usually the case in most places if its popular. Do your laundry next door if you feel a need.

Had breakfast at this cafe (twice) as it was so good the first time. Not your average breakfast menu, with lots of choice. Good service, and appreciated the refill on my teapot!

The best scrambled eggs, fab decor and good coffee. We are both vegetarian but there were plenty of options for us. The staff are friendly and happy and the service is good.

Sadly our great expectations from our first experience, was not repeated. Staff were fantastic and friendly. The order was Eggs benedict and the Fat boy...sadly both meals served cold. I cannot stand cold/lukewarm food.

We had brunch at the Machine Laundry Cafe as usual when we travel to Hobart. The coffee is fantastic and so is the food. We had Eggs Benedict and Eggs Florentine and both were perfect as always. The service was a little bit slow - but ok.

This place deserves its veneration by so many hobartians.. I've been here about 20 times and had a fantastic meal every time. The fat boy must be hobart's best breakfast dish, it is a work of genius. I love the fruity frappe, their other dishes and their cakes are superb. I think the prices are very reasonable give the quality,... More

Found this place while looking for somewhere to have breakfast and wasn’t disappointed. A really wide range of usual and unusual breakfast choices and very tasty; my friends came back again.

Very busy which is a good sign, but noisy. Coffee great as far as coffees go. I ordered a Skinny latte. Breakfast was an eggs Florentine. Poached eggs (cooked really well), sourdough & wilted spinach also good. There caramelised onion twist that they've added sweetened the entire dish. I personally don't think this was a good idea/ bad pairing of... More
