If you’re off to Hobart for a weekend of indulgent cafe-hopping then you’ve come to the right place to find out where to head for the best cafes in Hobart! Tasmania’s foodie capital is bursting with great eateries but no establishment competes with the classic cafe – serving great sweet treats all day and large, indulgent brunches to cover two meals. Here’s where to visit in Hobart!



1. Ginger Brown

A favourite amongst locals and visitors alike, Ginger Brown is Hobart’s best all-round cafe for the following reasons: the food is delicious and gorgeously plated, the prices are reasonable for the food on offer and they’re open 7 days a week.

Location: 464 Macquarie Street, South Hobart

2. Machine Laundry Cafe

Known for their generous coffee sizes and a kitsch interior (as the name suggests), Machine Laundry is a great low-key location to grab brunch in Salamanca, right in amongst the action on Saturdays (market day).

Location: 12 Salamanca Square

3. Berta

Although a little outside of the city centre itself, Berta is totally worth the extra effort. Situated in the foodie heaven that is North Hobart, Berta is a reasonably new comer to the cafe scene but has quickly become a favourite for gourmet eats and large portions.

Location: 323A Elizabeth Road, North Hobart

4. Daci & Daci Bakery

If you’re looking for something hearty and centrally located, Daci & Daci Bakery on the fringe of Salamanca is a popular stop for those looking to escape the hustle and bustle of Salamanca market on Saturdays.

Location: 9-11 Murray Street

5. Basket & Green

Although a little more on the expensive side ($18 for Eggs Benedict), Basket & Green is still a local favourite as they serve up consistently tasty dishes for brunchers.

Location: 179 Elizabeth Street

6. Jam Jar Lounge Cafe

To escape the crowds and enjoy something a little more low key, head on over to Battery Point and check out the local’s favourite: Jam Jar Lounge Cafe.

Location: 45 Hampden Road, Battery Point

7. Pollen Tea Room

Still over in Battery Point (a residential area that offers a quick escape from the city within 5-10 minutes walk of the city) is the cute and cosy Pollen tea room. This is a great place for dietary requirements and offers a decent selection of raw/vegan eats.

Location: 56 Hampden Road, Battery Point

8. Salamanca Wharf Cafe

Another great choice in Salamanca serving up consistently good breakfast and brunch is Salamanca Wharf Cafe. Also open 7 days.

Location: 17a Castray Esplanade 

9. Pilgrim Coffee

As one of the cheapest options in town and open seven days a week, Pilgrim is a popular spot to grab a quick takeaway or cafe breakfast pastry.

Location: 48 Argyle Street

Pressed Juices Hobart

10. Pressed Juices

Although not strictly a cafe and more or less a juicery offering a handful of healthy treats and eats, Pressed Juices is still a great option for breakfast and lunch in a small but cozy space, right in the centre of town.

Location: Shop 14, Target Centre (off the mall)

    As a traveler, How accessible is it to travel To Hobart? Is it best to take a boat from Melbourne? I’d love to go but don’t know easy it would be. Btw, The food looks great:)

      Easy! Look for a sheap flight – often lots cheaper than taking the Spirit to Devonport and then getting a bus to Hobart.
