Gorgeous food, so fresh, and lovely staff. Great little cafe. Quirky atmosphere and can't say enough good things about the food. Service was quick and coffee was tasty.

We stopped by here on our first day in Hobart and had an amazing dish with beans, haloumi and amazing dressing. The coffee was amazing and the layout was unique and funky, with helpful cheery staff. So much fun. Thank you!
