Excellent little cafe. Just out of the way enough to be quiet, and good prompt service on a moderately busy day.

As for the coffee? Excellent. My large flat white had perfect texture and temperature, and just a hint of sweetness.

Pity I’m only visiting Hobart for a few days, I’d be very happy with this as my local.

Don’t think I’ve had a bad coffee here. Get in early if you want to get a seat because it’s a tad tiny.

One of the most consistently excellent Hobart coffee haunts.

This is a regular haunt of mine and many other locals and for good reason too. With a self-proclamation of ‘Good Coffee, Made Well, Consistently’ they deliver on all accounts. Not only do they roast their own beans but they supply their beans to customers and other cafes including the cafe at MONA. Offering a number of different roasts appropriate to your order, this cafe offers a cosy atmosphere to escape the city and enjoy your coffee. Seating can be limited but their take-aways are made with the same precision and care as their diners. A small selection of light meals and muffins etc are available to enjoy. The brownies are to die for!
In the many years that I have frequented this cafe, I am yet to have a bad experience!

    Nice coffee here and a good place to sit if you feel like being away from the (bustle of?) Hobart streets for a while.

  • The Criterion Street Cafe

    99 Liverpool Street, Hobart TAS 7000, Australia

    Cosy friendly cafe. Great slow cooked lamb sandwich and corn fritters. Followed by a delicious creamy, mild flat white. Thoughtful staff too.

    Crap. Don’t bother any more.

    Lost all the charm it had. Bad coffee, limited food selection, terrible service.

    Now known as “West End Pumphouse”.

  • Island Espresso

    An unexpected delight. Here I was on my usual hike down Elizabeth St, and just for fun I spontaneously decided to have the nearest coffee. Island Coffees has small street frontage so it might have been easy to miss. But don’t make that mistake: treat yo…

    Lovely coffee. Do yourself a favour and get a gourmet burger to go with it while you browse the markets.

  • Aroma

    39/41 Murray St, Hobart TAS 7000, Australia

    I know they have only just opened, but the service was slow (it wasn’t busy, the staff just had no urgency) and the coffee was very average; not a great first impression. No incentive to go back with Yellow Bernard just around the corner.
