Our Favourite Cafes

Pigeon Hole Small, buzzing Café on the fringe of the city, renowned for its daily changing blackboard breakfast and lunch menu. Amazingly tasty Panini’s, baked eggs and its now famous sourdough breads.

93 Goulburn Street, Hobart

Sweet Envy

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!

341 Elizabeth Street, North Hobart

Ginger Brown

A true funky and slightly bohemian suburban café, bursting with life.. A fabulous seasonal all day menu and great coffee.

464 Macquarie Street, South Hobart


Great breakfasts and morning and afternoon teas, set in a striking sandstone warehouse in Salamanca. A must visit for their coffee.

77 Salamanca Place, Hobart

Daci & Daci

You cannot walk past this place without being tempted inside. Where you will be whisked away to a Parisian Boulangerie  with 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. A definite for any sweet tooth!

11 Murray Street, Hobart

Pigeon Hole Bakers

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 donut, or an irresistible bag of cookies!

24-32 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.

28 Argyle St, Hobart

Property of Pilgrim

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!

56 Liverpool Street, Hobart

Jackman and McRoss

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.

57 Hampden Road, Battery Point

Berta Coffee. Food. Wine.

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!

323a Elizabeth St, North Hobart
