Ginger Brown 464 Macquarie Street, South Hobart

A true funky and slightly bohemian suburban café, bursting with life. Almost impossible to get a table on a weekend, a great place to hang out. In the time that it has been open, Ginger Brown has become an institution for the South Hobart locals and the greater Hobart community. Ginger Brown serves great food with an ever-changing specials menu, and bookings are highly recommended on weekends.


Macquarie St Foodstore 356 Macquarie St, South Hobart

A pioneering South Hobart cafe – always rewards. It’s an old shopfront full of booths, bookish students, brunching friends and kids mooching under the tables. Chew into a Foodstore Pizza (bacon, chorizo, mozzarella, red peppers) after a visit to the Cascade Brewery. Food Heaven. Seriously without doubt one of the best food experiences in Hobart and one of its best kept secrets.


The Duchess 231 Sandy Bay Road, Sandy Bay

A georgeous cottage, verandah and decor fitting of the name Duchess. Of all the cafes in Sandy Bay, it provides the best selection of cooked meals (not premade rolls), exciting salads & trendy specials of the day. A varied and interesting menu.


Pigeon Hole 93 Goulburn Street, West Hobart

Small, simple and very popular, Pigeon Hole Cafe restaurant is a West Hobart favourite. Generating a cool hipster vibe, Pigeon Hole is eclectic and cosy, serving a constantly changing menu of organic breakfast and lunch dishes that could include eggs cocotte, panini and warming soups. With close proximity to the Fitzroy Gardens and Parliament House, Pigeon Hole is a great place to stop for a coffee or meal while visiting Hobart. Famous for its sourdough breads.


Jackman and McRoss 57 Hampden Road, Battery Point

One of Hobart’s institutions, situated in the centre of historic Battery Point. This is the place to go for delicious pastries, breads and their famous lamb and rosemary pies. There is plenty of room inside, but be warned, this venue is extremely popular with the locals so can be quite busy any day of the week. Very reasonably priced menu.


Cascade Brewery Cafe - acceptable coffee, fine gardens


North Hobart 

Sweet Envy 341 Elizabeth Street, North Hobart

No simple cake shop! Alastair and Teena’s cakes, pastries, macaroons, homemade ice creams, biscuits and confectionery are all too good to resist. Their savoury options ain’t half bad for a light lunch either!


Berta Coffee. Food. Wine. 323a Elizabeth St, North Hobart

Formerly Piccolo (one of our old faves for dinner) this North Hobart daytime eatery is now a must for breakfast or lunch. Alex and Alisha have reinvented the space and their gingerbread hotcakes or smoked pork belly are worth the visit alone, not to mention its great positioning for people watching! 

There are seats outside, best in summer or with a four-legged mate. As is the crowd, the menu is fresh and appeals to all. Not offered all that often in Tassie is all-day breakfast. 


Room for a Pony 338 Elizabeth St, North Hobart

Room for a Pony inhabits a former petrol station on North Hobart’s busy eatery strip, Elizabeth Street and pumps out trendy eats amid exposed cement, vertical greenery and short timber stools. Typical hipster chic, the place is cool but comfortable. 


Rain Check Lounge 392-394 Elizabeth St, North Hobart

Don’t be in a rush when visiting Rain Check Lounge. The vibe is quite relaxed and is certainly well known and loved by locals. They specialize in tapas and offer an extensive menu for breakfast, lunch and dinner. Enjoy a beautiful cocktail and try the ever-changing range of specials listed on the blackboard. The coffee is well made and we have always had great service with a very friendly smile. This is certainly a very busy café so make a booking if you have a larger group.


Fuel So Good 279 Elizabeth Street, North Hobart

Delicious and healthy! Peanut butter and banana smoothie bowl was terrific. Great service, friendly and efficient.


SALAMANCA AND THE WATERFRONT

Tricycle 77 Salamanca Place, Hobart

Deep in the heart of Hobart’s tourist centre (but sheltered from the crowds in the foyer of the Peacock Theatre), Tricycle is one of the best cafes in the Salamanca Arts Centre. Great breakfasts and morning and afternoon teas, set in a striking sandstone warehouse in Salamanca. A must visit for their coffee in a snug spot.


Daci & Daci 11 Murray Street, Hobart

Daci & Daci Bakers is a charming European-style cafe that offer some of the tastiest and most reasonably priced bakery and pastry treats in the CBD. It is definitely worth a visit when you are in Hobart. Proper croque-monsieurs, unusual and very popular Italian doughnut-like jam and custard bombaloni, real onion, olive and anchovy pissaladiere as well as patisserie stand-bys like almond croissants, seasonal fruit galettes, pan au chocolat and lunch-time sandwiches, pies and savouries. Daci is a favourite morning coffee spot, as well as a great weekend brunch spot for locals and visitors alike. The cafe is located in central Hobart on Murray Street and it is just a short walk from the popular Salamanca Market on Saturdays. 


Machine Laundry Cafe 12 Salamanca Square, Hobart

As its name suggests, this place is half cafe, half laundromat, and while I attacked my bacon and eggs, people did actually shuffle in to the laundromat side, stick their coins into washing machines and do their laundry. Great selection of brunch and lunch options: muesli, french toast, banana and ricotta hotcakes, eggs - various styles, fruit toast, muffins, three bears porridge (poached pear with a swirl of blueberry coulis & toasted almonds...yum!), parmesan and pancetta pancakes,  & specialty egg dishes, burgers, soup, salads, & the famous 'fat boy' - roti bread wrap with grilled chicken, bacon, tomato, ice burg lettuce & spicy peanut sauce .


CBD

Pigeon Hole Bakers 24-32 Argyle St, Hobart

You can now get our fave organic sourdough, rye, spelt bread, fruit loaf and more, hot from the oven, at Jay and Emma’s new retail space in the old Mercury building. Warning: You won’t leave here without something else sweet and delicious, like a custard filled doughnut, or an irresistible bag of cookies!


Betsey 28 Argyle St, Hobart

Adjoining new restaurant Franklin, in the old Mercury building, this tiny space with just one long table, might see you fighting for one of its low stools! A small menu offers delicious, simple breakfast, brunchy options and extremely good coffee.


Property of Pilgrim 56 Liverpool Street, Hobart

Attached to Pilgrim Coffee, this lively spot in the heart of town draws a regular crowd to enjoy their delicious breakfast and lunch dishes. Local and seasonal, think confit duck leg with Polish potato pancake or Balmain bug burgers!


Island Espresso 171 Elizabeth Street, Hobart

Supplied by world class Zimmah Coffee

A staple cafe in Hobart, run by the Knezevic family. It’s been there for 16 years, which in coffee terms is ancient times. Located on Elizabeth Street, Island is like sitting around in someone’s living room: cozy and comfortable, where you feel like a regular when you come in, or feel like a hideaway as you enjoy your coffee quietly in its nooks or loft area.

The food is always tasty, offering the classic Aussie brunch and brekkie dishes, as well as lunches. The coffee comes from Zimmah Coffee, a separately owned operation from Dane Knezevic that originated in the cafe basement. The setup is a Linea espresso machine and Mazzer grinders with a couple of espresso choices always on offer. If the sisters are on the bar and aren’t too busy, you might even be able to sneak in a cheeky Chemex. A lot of the local coffee-scene folk, at one point or another, did time behind the bar here, before there was a booming coffee scene in Hobart.


Villino Espresso 30 Criterion Street, Hobart

Villino Espresso has been a local favorite since it opened, so much so that there used to be lines out onto the street blocking up the outside seating. The cafe itself is cozy with an L-shaped bar displaying a Synesso Hydra and a couple of Mazzer grinders. On offer there is Villino’s Synergy espresso blend, along with different guest espressos. Try a Panama Geisha and a Indonesian Ming Solok, one of the best Indonesian coffees, full of acidity and sweetness.


Fullers Bookshop 131 Collins St, Hobart

After Word Café is part of the expanded Fullers Book Shop which is Hobart's busiest bookstore. This is a pleasant place to relax and peruse your recent book purchases.We like the coffee here and there are some nice things to go with it such as the delicious lemon tarts.

Solo Pasta & Pizza 50b King Street, Sandy Bay - 500 metres away

The buzz at Solo Pasta and Pizza makes this one of the best Italian eateries in town. This Sandy Bay restaurant is driven by the energy, talent and hospitality of the young chef and owners. The menu is fairly extensive and apart from pizza and pasta, there's antipasto, risottos, salads and more substantial seafood and meat mains. Need to book!


Me Wah Chinese Restaurant 6 Magnet Ct, Sandy Bay

Sumptuously decorated, Me Wah Chinese Restaurant has a quality of food, wine and service that is usually only seen in the top Sydney and Melbourne Chinese establishments. With starched linen, beautiful Chinese screens, ceremonial wishing bowls and wall panels, an imposing entrance guarded by Chinese lions and a plush takeaway section, this Sandy Bay eatery is highly recommended.


Don Camillo (Italian) 5 Magnet Court, Sandy Bay

Don Camillo stakes a claim on being the oldest Italian restaurant in Hobart and considering it's been serving up faultless handmade pasta for 50 years, we don't think anyone's arguing. The kitchen offers a refined menu with the best of Italian techniques and the freshest Tasmanian produce. This isn't the place to go for a pizza. Instead, think Bruny Island oysters baked with prosciutto, melt-in-your mouth potato gnocchi and Huon Valley Eye-fillet wrapped in aged pancetta.


Magic Curries Indian Restaurant 41 Hampden Rd, Battery Point 

Their curries are much better and more authentically sourced than most, so this is exotic Indian at its spicy best. The kitchen specialises in North Indian and Punjabi food, and don't worry, if you're not hot for spice, the restaurant will adjust its dishes for you. The Magic Curries dining room is intimate, with traditional wall-hangings and cosy open fires.


Da Angelo Ristorante (Italian)  47 Hampden Rd, Battery Point

For a heady, bustling, southern-Italian dining experience, head to pizza and pasta restaurant, Ristorante Da Angelo. The restaurant is located in Battery Point's main thoroughfare, just five minutes' walk from Salamanca Place and 10 minutes' walk from your apartment. The kitchen has been bringing consistently tasty Mediterranean dishes to diners for over 15 years. Finish your meal with a shot of grappa in true Italian style. Book ahead! Always very busy.

Ethos Eat Drink - sadly closed in Sept 2016
100 Elizabeth St
Modern Australian, Shared Plates, Tapas

Templo
98 Patrick St
Bar snacks, Italian, Shared Plates

This cosy small space is an intimate 20 seater that is all about sharing and having a good time. Offering diners a communal dining space and a menu that is adorned with plates to share, expect to find pasta's and locally sourced seafood dressed up with bold flavours. It is worth the hide and go seek routine to find it.

Franklin
28 Argyle St
Bar snacks, Modern Australian, Seafood

Serving up the lesser known treasures of the Tasmanian waters such as sea urchin, calamari and octopus; Hobart’s Franklin restaurant offers an original approach to deep-sea dining. Whether perched at the bar for a no-cutlery nosh or in the refined dining room, chef David Moyle (formerly The Stackings at Peppermint Bay) will continue to surprise and delight. Craft beer, grappa and an Italian leaning wine list will see you through the night.


SALAMANCA AND THE WATERFRONT

The Glass House
Brooke Street Pier, Franklin Wharf
A Destination!

 

 

At the end of the Brooke Street is floor to ceiling glass. Inside is a bar and restaurant of impeccable quality like the Murano glass that lines its entrance. The Glass House is a destination.

The owners of the boutique hotel Islington, with a reputation for beautiful aesthetic and attention to detail, have been kind enough to share these qualities with the realpolitik.

Smolt 
2 Salamanca Square

Italian and Spanish influenced dining

Locally sourced Italian and Spanish food in an open, elegant locale with Scandinavian-chic decor. Smolt is a modern cafe/bar/eatery in bustling Salamanca Square that's as good for meals as it is for snacks, a pre-dinner cognac or a late night coffee. The menu at this Hobart restaurant embraces the modern trend towards smaller dishes and share plates and all showcase the beauty and freshness of Tasmanian produce. Breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Frank
1 Franklin Wharf
Sharing food from Argentina

With water views one side and leafy green Morrison Street on the other, Frank Restaurant and Bar is a wonderful creation by Smolt's owners.

Self-professed modern Australian with Southern American influences, Frank plays hosts to asado and Latino flavours in MONA-esque architecture. Combined with great food and service, this is not to be missed.

Peacock & Jones at Henry Jones Hotel, 33 Hunter St, Hobart
A sexy little space if you get off on that “old bones/designer flesh” approach to restaurant design. “Modern bistro” might be the best term. Or “bistronomy”. Simple, approachable food with a modern sensibility.


NORTH HOBART
 

Roaring Grill 301 Elizabeth Street

Gourmet burgers, sausages and flame-grilled chicken skewers served in a modern, buzzy locale. The Roaring Grill is all about bringing the paddock to plate theory to life by showcasing and sourcing produce all locally sourced farms from land to sea. Modern classics like pork belly and Scotsdale Free-Range BBQ glazed ribs are some of the crowd favourites as well as the signature dessert of Tasmanian Hellyers cream whisky Brulee. The cool decor of dark wooden back chairs and feature wall of stretched cow hide add to the country meets city vibe.


Pancho Villa Tequila Bar 378 Elizabeth Street

Mexican, great food and atmosphere. 

With dim, moody lighting, Day of the Dead skulls and artwork, ornate designer lamps, black velvet banquettes, black furniture and colourfully patterned stained glass windows, a bar featuring 56 different tequilas and the percussion of cocktail shakers sounding like castanets, the boys behind Burger Haus, Regazzi and Capital have done it again, turning the old ANZ bank in North Hobart into a very stylish American/Mexican bar that is unique to Hobart.

And they’ve nailed that combination of good food and good, fun vibes that have made newer eateries like Frank and Urban Greek such instant, popular hits with Hobart diners. Like Frank, at Pancho Villa, it’s a younger, buzzy, mostly 30-something crowd some of whom are happy to pay $40 for a hit of one of Mexico’s top tequilas.

Stefano Lubiana Osteria

Winding up through dry sclerophyll bush, on the slopes of the Derwent River, lies a biodynamic vineyard that produces some Tasmania’s most respected wines.

Stefano Lubiana and partner Monique, have taken their passion for quality, organic farming and seasonal produce from the vineyard to the kitchen, and your plate. Real food that real people want to eat. The Osteria is simply beautiful. Set against the Derwent and the Wellington Ranges, diners also enjoy a view of the vineyard and kitchen garden. You will probably see the chef picking through the produce that will end up in front of you.
