Very funky hipster type joint in south hobart. Beautiful food with difficult to navigate menu. No diet coke here people only organic cola! Really enjoyed the gillespies ginger beer and the taco bowl. Can be very busy. Very friendly service.

Took advantage of the all day breakfast. Kids had the half serve scrambled eggs which were of a generous size. Wife had great eggs with delicious haloumi. I had the kimchi pancake which was good but I would have preferred a big spoon of kimchi on the side and a lot more herbs. Still nice and fresh though.

This cafe has a well deserved reputation as one of the best in South Hobart. Don't expect fancy decor or furnishings but you will be treated to some great food. I love the atmosphere and although it's almost always busy, you can relax with a newspaper whilst waiting for your food. Even the most simple dishes are given that little... More

I enjoyed a banana... More

I have been a long time fan of Ginger Brown. Great little cafe in South Hobart, the baked eggs they have been doing to perfection since day dot. The menu is a little limited, but all the offerings are great.

Recently had breakfast at Ginger Brown. Good menu offering a reasonable range, should satisfy most people. I had scrambled eggs, mushrooms and bacon all served on sourdough bread together with a cappuccino. Very tasty and cappuccino just as I like it. Wife had a poached egg on sourdough, a roasted garlic rosti and mushrooms and a latte. She enjoyed her... More

Visited Ginger Brown as we were staying nearby. We got there at 2.30 for a late lunch and were impressed with the friendliness of the staff and the excellent cafe style food. At 2.30 it was still very busy. It had a friendly atmosphere, the food arrived reasonably quickly and the portions were generous

A refreshingly creative breakfast menu that goes well beyond the standard offered in so many cafes. Very quick service delivered the beef cheek omelette, a great hit with my companion, and the Bircher muesli, which was spot on for me. Both dishes were presented beautifully and we were also very happy with the smoothie and coffee. A further treat was... More
