This place was not on my list for testing all the coffee joints in the Hobart CBD that serve early in the morning, but it should have been. Dropped in this morning to enjoy a delicious, properly made cappuccino that was right on the money. At $3.80 on a par with other more pretentious establishments in town whose coffee is... More

Great place to dine on a budget with the standard fair of burgers, pasties and sausage rolls all at very affordable prices

The food was fine - freshly prepared and hot. Needed food after a visit to the pub and this did the trick - had to try it for the name alone!

This freindly family run business is consistent and reliable in its service, to office workers, tourists and nurses alike. The coffee is extremely good, nothing is to much trouble if you want a sandwich or a burger freshly made to order. A good place for a quick and easy breakfast, their egg and bacon rolls are always fresh, and very... More

Fast food with no pretension or delusions of grandeur. Satisfying and cheap burgers done to order. Reasonable chips. Good for late night snacking.

You would think that a place claiming that they have the 'best burgers this end of town' would make a great burger. My cheese burger was not great or good but pretty crappy.

Found this place on the way back to my hotel. Looks like an old petrol station, a few taxi drivers were parked there eating so I figured as locals they knew what they were doing. Hamburger with the lot, was delicious, sauce very tasty, seemed like fresh pineapple. Only problem was that my meat wasn't cooked all the way through.

Budgie Smugglers is a MUST if you are in Hobart! Checking in late to our hotel, Budgie Smugglers was the only place open and I did have my doubts - location and decor - former petrol station/garage? However, they didn't win Best Burger in Hobart for nothing! The burgers and chips are cooked to order and are absolutely delicious! Their... More

I have been going to this coffee shop for many a year as I work across the street, I purchase a burger and only to find they no longer toast the bun, and the bun was that cold it spoiled the meal. Hope they improve!
