“Great for cakes”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

Tried to get in to this place on a Saturday when last in Hobart, but there were queues out the door. Guessed it was good/popular. Tried again on a Sunday afternoon and had a choice of tables. The place is funky/retro with laminex topped tables with chrome legs, probably from the 50's/60's; chairs of various styles. Service is speedy and friendly. My coffee was a disappointment 4/10, but the date and walnut cake (with real, thick cream) was beautiful - 10/10,

“The place to be for breakfast”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

It didn't take long to realise why this place was so busy when others were empty. Breakfast was delicious! Four in our group and all raved about our meals. Staff were very friendly and even did some table shuffling to fit us inside on this chilly October morning.
Interesting place to sit and people watch also.

“Brunch”
Reviewed 12 October 2013

Brunch menu varied - something for all. One of the party had a full breakfast - great value and fresh, hot. Muesli for one, well presented, tasty, and eggs hollandaise another. Again, well presented and hot, tasty. Be warned though - this is a very popular place, so bookings strongly advised.

“Unique atmosphere, great food”
Reviewed 6 October 2013

We enjoyed a great lunch at machine cafe yesterday ... the washing machines and 50's style decor is fun and different from the many eateries around Salamanca. The staff were friendly, efficient and attentive despite being very busy! Our order was taken promptly and our food arrived without any delays. Both the ABC burger and the fat boy were delicious! The satay sauce on the fat boy was a winner! Good balance of peanut pieces and spice. The pots of tea were generous, which is a nice change from many restaraunts which leave you wanting that additional mouthful of tea. All the meals coming from the kitchen looked appetising - so many dishes in the menu sounded delicious. A great way to enjoy a lazy Saturday ....
