We had breakfast at Machine Laundry Cafe when we arrived in Hobart after finding out from travel blogs that it really is the place to have breakfast in Hobart and we weren't disappointed. Great food, good coffee and attentive friendly staff. Reminded me a bit of the cafes in Melbourne. We sat next to a couple from QLD who were... More

This is a great little café with great food. Very popular and very busy. Tucked away in the corner of Salamanca square.

Best breakfast we have ever had eating out. Having missed breakfast service time at another restaurant, we were told that 'The Machine' around the corner served an all day breakfast, so we went to give it a try.... and soooooo glad that we found it in a top corner of Salamanca Square. Absolutely delicious!!! As a result, we ate here... More

Without doubt the old new eggs is the best breakfast in Hobart. Especially if you add some chorizo and mushrooms! Good friendly service, a great range of cakes and just one of the most relaxing places to spend some time. I could say hip and funky too but its just plain great!

This is a fun spot for breakfast or lunch with lots of egg and pancake options, and a few wraps, but apparently lacking lighter options like salads. We had the berry hotcakes and the 'fat boy' chicken wrap, both delicious, and a frappe, fabulous, and coffee, ok. The service is a little bit cool, but they were busy and we... More

We walked up for breakfast on a Monday morning ... we're lucky to get a table as the place was filling. We had a variety of breakfast from fruit salad to cooked fair that all arrived at once ... coffee was spot on too! WILL BE BACK TO THIS ONE !!!

Family went for a cuppa, order coffee when it came coffee was not hot enough. It's a laundry slash coffee shop amazing idea while doing your laundry or waiting to finish have a cuppa but make sure they serve you a hot drink not warm.

We arrived in Hobart and made a beeline to the waterfront whilst waiting for check-in to our abode. After mooching around Salamanca a bit, we saw that there was a fair bit of action up at the machine laundry cafe and gave it a look. I was ready to knaw my arm off, and picked the lamb sanga and a...
