    My favourite cafe in whole world, been there as long as can remember, still serving great coffee and solid food, like an old friend.

    This is a Hobart institution!!!!! Must go have a coffee and the mushrooms on toast (add a side if aioli!). The grandma made chocolate cornflake biscuits are also delicious. Watch Salamanca go by.

    Great food! Came for brunch and had the scrambled eggs and the cheese and chive pancake (a special). Yummy and friendly service.

    Bring cash. I know it's called Retro but no eftpos or credit card facilities in 2013 is just stupid!

    Maybe it was just Sunday afternoon lazyness, but coffee was terrible.

    One of the original coffee houses in Hobart. Probably now outclassed by some of the above.

    Start the day with a relaxing morning cup and try the breakfast special with smoked salmon, poached eggs, fresh asparagus and aioli. Breakfast before 11 am.
