Had brunch at Raspberry Fool last week and it was one of the best experiences I have had in Hobart! Staff were extremely friendly and were attentive without being intrusive - a major pet peeve of mine. Coffee was excellent and was the perfect temperature,...More

Just tried to have lunch. No interest in serving customers. Staff too self absorbed to care. Won’t be back. There are plenty of nicer places nearby.More

Just walking past and felt like a coffee and decided to stop in, and were welcomed immediately. We also had an espresso cupcake which was just delicious and maybe the best cupcake I've ever had. The coffee was lovely too. The friendly service was outstanding...More

I would say we went to Raspberry Fool based on other reviews, in contrast, my wife would say we went there because she specifically wanted poached eggs and beans without a mountain of soggy toast for breakfast. Regardless of the reason, it was a decision...More

Great coffee and wonderful food. Good value for money and whole foods. Best fruit toast and musli I've had in ages. Plus they were more than helpful to assist with dietary requirements.
