I go to the Elizabth St store for the best mochas in town. Sammy who owns the cafe is always super friendly with a massive smile on her face. Highly recommend the scrambled eggs and rhubarb relish when eating in or the take away bun...More

This was a great find as we walked through the mall, it's not big but they pack a lot in! The coffee is amazing and the slices top off a quick snack. Worth finding!

Great coffee! Tasty food! Good value! Charming service! What's not to like? This is obviously a fave among locals if the regular stream of walk-ins is anything to go by.....even drive-ins, as people pull up outside and dash in for a coffee. The food is...More

I've wandered by this cafe often and this morning decided to try a takeaway coffee and check the place out. It's a nice, quirky little space with a welcoming atmosphere. Lots of tempting yummies on display, but I was only there for a caffeine hit....More

Quaint corner café, stools to sit on around the café or nearby seating in open area. Grabbed a coffee, bit slow in making but was worth the wait. Food options were good, no your average salad sandwich, however did provide the ever popular meat pie....More

This stop was a relaxing spot for morning coffee. Coffee was excellent and service solid. The Shoebox seems to have a second outlet in Centrepoint but we visited the Elizabeth St outlet

I live in Hobart and go out of my way to get coffee (I drink a soy FW) from Shoebox. Absolutely delectable coffee! I also love their tofu sesame wraps. The wrap is a delicious rich sort of chewy sesame bread that I can't explain....More

Shoebox provided several days’ worth of morning tea, lunches and afternoon teas for a series of meetings I was at, so I didn’t actually visit the site. A brilliant variety every day. Fruit (melon, kiwi etc) and nuts. Olives, cheeses, and crackers. Croissants. Sushi. Wraps....More

Hi Madryn Thanks for your review! We are so glad you enjoyed the food we catered. We had a feeling that was for IMAS? It is really great to hear about the catering comments. Because, at cafe, we can ask customers and know it straightaway...More
