Embrace the foodie revolution in Hobart's excellent cafes

The bad old days of imported, frozen and mass produced food in Tasmania's pretty capital are well and truly gone. Now, cafes in Hobart are embracing all that is fresh, local and seasonal. It's a stunning transformation and one that has helped to create a thriving cafe culture in Australia's second oldest city. What's behind this move? One factor is the number of local chefs who have spent time learning their trade in some of the world's great restaurants. Now returned to their native city, they have brought with them the skills, experience and confidence to create a new sort of dining experience in contemporary Hobart cafes. These international influences are combined with great ingredients from Tasmania's rich natural larder to create a new level of Tasmanian dining.

    Where to find the best cafes in Hobart

    As a port city, much of the city's bustle takes place around the harbour. This is where international influences arrive, creating an exciting cosmopolitan atmosphere. The waterfront precinct of Hobart offers cafes, pubs, restaurants and museums, resulting in a buzzing neighbourhood with lots to enjoy. Constitution Dock is at the centre of it all and is rapidly becoming a popular hangout for those who enjoy great food and excellent nightlife, while the Gasworks Complex and Franklin Wharf also house some fine eateries. Salamanca Square is another culinary hot spot. It has great views of the waterfront and some of the best outdoor cafes in Hobart. Right next door, Battery Point, too, has some popular eateries and the coastal resort area of Sandy Bay has some lovely and relaxed dining options. These are just a few highlights of Hobart's growing cafe scene and you can find more examples all across the city.

    Variety is the spice of Hobart cafes

    Book a table at a cafe in Hobart and you could soon be enjoying anything from a hearty breakfast to a bento box. If you're appetite is light, you can opt for some great home baking, with some excellent cakes, pastries and bread, all made locally. The coffee is fantastic too, often roasted right here on Tasmania to create fresh brews tailored for local tastes. Talking of great local drinks, many licensed cafes in Hobart offer excellent Tasmanian wines. Look out for quality wines from the Coal and Derwent valleys and the local specialities of organic and biodynamic wines. Tasmania also has some delicious beer, with much of it brewed in the Cascade Brewery. There is also a growing number of small craft beer breweries producing tasty beers in small batches.
