I went to Criterion Street Cafe for the first time last week and had a wonderful time. I ordered the corn fritters and was delighted with the meal! Staff were very friendly and would highly recommend.

This is, in my opinion, one of the best little spots in Hobart. Awesome vibe, super friendly staff and great coffee. The food is always incredibly tasty and wholesome! We always take friends and family here when they are visiting and they are never disappointed.

This cafe is right in the centre of Hobart and my wife and I decided upon lunch and a coffee and were really glad we chose the Criterion Street Cafe. They make terrific coffee and the lamb sandwich was huge, enough for two meals!!!
