B: Mr.K and I happened to arrive here on the hottest day recorded in Hobart. The only available seats were inside and to make matters worst, there was no air-con! Nonetheless, I was determine to eat here!
Located within Salamanca Square, it’s a little cafe in the corner with a not-so-little crowd. Just as the name suggest, this cafe included a laundromat on one side and a cafe on the other. The dark teal walls with the orange and yellow counter and vinyl seatings gave this cafe a real retro feel. It felt as if I was in a 1950’s diner.
I had the usual soy latte ($3.5 + soy $0.3).
Mr.K had a regular latte ($3.5) which came quite late after my soy latte.
Eggs Royale – poached eggs, smoked salmon, spinach, caramalised onion and hollandaise on toasted sourdough ($18). It was a nice combination of flavours, the sweetness of the onions gave it that extra lift and the egg yolks were nice and oozy.
The Old New Egg Dish – eggs scrambled with a fetta on garlic sourdough with beetroot relish and wild rocket ($14) add crispy pancetta or chorizo ($3.5). I ordered the extra chorizo and I’m glad I did, because the dish would have been very plain and disappointing with the overly stale and chewy sourdough.
We finished off with a coffee milkshake ($6) to cool us down.
I wanted to dine here again but unfortunately we didn’t have enough time. It would have been nice to try the other dishes on the menu.
