The Retro Café in Hobart was one of the first eateries in Tasmania's famous Salamanca Place area. This café has become an institution. It is the sort of place where interstate and overseas visitors arrange to meet because it is such a well-known landmark.
The coffee is what made the Retro famous and they still use the same Vittoria coffee that they introduced in 1990. They also serve good breakfast dishes despite having one of the smallest kitchens in the known universe!
We also like the fact that people from a wide cross-section of society seem to claim the Retro as their own. Artists, musicians, business people, politicians, university students and many others all feel comfortable here.
