We had a great breakfast here (and coffee yesterday) . Friendly service and excellent coffee. If I lived near here it would be my regular haunt.

Stopped for big breakfast as we We're hungry. Staff were lovely and quick service when we arrived but the food was below average. My eggs ( Benedict) was over cooked with cold stogie muffins and cheap Hollandaise out of a bottle. My wife had French toast and couldn't get passed a few bites. Cold and thick slice of old bread...

Very disappointed to find out that the Rain Check kitchen no longer operates after 7pm! We use to go there regularly for dinner/snacks but they're only offering cold coffee (the temperature of the flat white they served was barely tepid) and cookies. Very disappointed. As well he usual fair of felafel, chips, salmon cakes etc has disappeared from the menu.... More

My mate who lives in the neighbourhood said this was one of her favourite cafes but after my one and only visit and struggling to figure out why? The location was lovely with warm sunshine streaming in the window (it can be a bit cool in Hobart) but that is where the good bits finished. My coffee was lukewarm and... More

Stopped in on our first day in Hobart for lunch and had a mixed grain salad with local fish. Service was quick and the quality of ingredients and flavour of the salads as good as you could wish for. We went back to sample an evening menu a day later but felt underwhelmed with the offerings. Stick to the lunch... More

We had a large group of 8 for brunch and they went out of their way to fit us in on a very busy Sunday morning. Lovely food and very nice staff.

Very unassuming from the street with its stealth black paint job. My wife and I are not familiar with North Hobart, so we were strolling up the road looking for a breakfast spot. The only reason I spotted it from across the road was a single patron and his dog enjoying a coffee on your typical cafe chair. We walked... More

This was once a reliable place for a relaxed meal. Sadly it no longer resembles the hub it was. The calimari was chewy and inedible. The desserts (mud cake and cheese cake) were served straight from the freezer ~ so inedible too. The waitress was friendly but had no idea. My drinks were taken before I had finished with them....

The staff here were very friendly and very easy going. We took a while to order but this was not a bother to the staff. Our drinks and meals came out quickly and we're delicious.

Get yourselves to a Barista course pronto. Your coffee's and other hot drinks are so inconsistent, ranging from cold to lukewarm, milk to almost coffee and sometimes just a cup of froth. Ugh, so over this place. So many chances but your staff just don't get it.
