“Great breakfast”
Reviewed 27 May 2013 via mobile

Milkshake & a fatboy, what more do I need to say?!

Great atmosphere, delicious food, dog friendly.

Give your clothes a wash, or llay a game of oversized chess whike you're there!

It's a must visit.

“A must visit”
Reviewed 25 May 2013

On first glance Machine does not present a glamerous or even high quality feel. Situated in the corner of Salamanca Square, surrounded by top-knotch restaurants, the only thing that draws you in is the amount of people occupying the tables and the great review of a past customer. Immediately you are greeted by friendly staff, and although put on a small waitlist, assured it is totally worth the wait by the smiles on customers faces. We ordered the eggs benedict, and scrambled eggs on sourdough with mushrooms. Benedict was tasty, however not the best had in Tassie. Overall I would definitely bring friends back here and hope for an inside table to soak up that atmosphere.

“Quirky little cafe”
Reviewed 25 May 2013

You wouldn't expect it in the middle of Salamanca square with its tourist focussed shops, but Machine Laundry Cafe offers a delicious quirky alternative.

We went for breakfast. They offered a short but delicious selection of breakfast dishes. They did reasonably good coffee. Their service was friendly and helpful. The place is tiny, much more outdoor seating than indoor which might not be so good in colder or wet weather.

Interesting artwork, lines the walls, oh and there is a real self-service laundromat attached if you need to do your laundry at the same time.

“Great small venue! Open public holidays!”
Reviewed 24 May 2013

This place is fantastic, it can get really packed out on those public holidays but I have always enjoyed a coffee and a small breakfast here!

It is one of the only places that cares to be open on a public holiday, where most places can't be bothered.
