Fun and funky decor and theming with delicious food. Despite being extremely busy the staff were friendly and helpful. Well located in Salamanca Square. Exceptional muffins and good coffee too!

We were on our way to another cafe. And were surprised to find it closed at 9am on a Sunday morning. So we ended up at the neighbouring Machine Laundry Cafe. And our breakfast was very tasty. And we enjoyed watching the laundry drop off...More

The coffee is one of the best I had in Hobart. The food is good but not great. This however was the first time in my life that the girl behind the counter didn't accept us paying separate....
