We covered all the happy snaps in Part 1 so we can move on to something very close to my heart. Yep, Hobart Part Two is ALL about the food. So if you don't like food you may want to look away now. Also, we can't be friends anymore.
Most of these places were recommended to us before going (thank you!) and I wanted to keep it here nice and tidy as a resource for future reference. Let's go!
Jack Greene, Salamanca
After flying into Hobart in the afternoon, checking into our hotel and strolling down the pier we instantly recognised the name of this pub from so many people telling us to go here, so we promptly decided to do an early dinner while we could still get a table. We ordered a local Cider and a burger each. I had the mushroom burger with haloumi and it was one of the best veggie burgers of my life. Also the chips. You have to get the chips!
Salamanca Markets, Salamanca
We almost didn't get here as it was bucketing down on the Saturday morning but the skies magically cleared up for a couple of hours as were driving back from the MONA. The first thing I could smell was donuts so I followed my nose to a little caravan and we got a custard donut and jelly donut to share. They were huge and like a dollar each and seriously hit the spot.
Just as we were leaving (and it started raining again) we came across the Mountain Pepper Pizza stall. This guy had a wood fire oven happening and like 6 different veggie pizzas. It was really hard to decide, and I considered getting a slice of each, but settled on the beetroot and goats cheese and let's just say that one slice wasn't enough. Hashtag regrets.
Jackman & McRoss Bakery, Battery Point
First of all, if you go to Hobart and don't go to Battery Point you are a bad person. It's the most beautiful little town, with gingerbread house style cottages, a ridiculous view of Mount Wellington as well as a lovely lookout over the water complete with sailboats and fishermen. Magical.
This charming bakery makes a gorgeous breakfast - I had poached eggs on sourdough; Will had ricotta and berry french toast - and you would be insane to leave without a couple of pastries for the road.
Fish Frenzy, Elizabeth Street Pier
By the Sunday I had some serious fish and chip cravings. After a long day of driving to the Huon Valley, then up Mount Wellington it was ON. We got a mixed pack with calamari, scallops and fish and it was fresh fresh fresh. Also the view from our table was pretty spectacular.
Pilgrim Coffee, City Centre
We had our first breakfast here because it was literally right around the corner from our hotel, and then we had our last breakfast here again because I needed to relive the french toast. Oh man, the french toast. It has this beautiful lavender cream and a 'potpourri' of rose petals and freeze dried berries. This would be my last meal if I ever end upon death row. Also the coffee is amazing, as is the single origin cocoa waffles with banana and, wait for it, salted caramel sauce. Yeah. Go here.
Cascade Brewery, Cascades
Our last stop of the trip was to the Cascade Brewery, which is the oldest brewery in Australia, where we did a tour (pro tip: go during the week so that you can see the bottling in action) and then had a beer tasting paddle (which is included in the tour cost) with lunch. I'm not much of a beer drinker so went for the beer and cider paddle which had 3 tasting glasses of each. It was a really nice way to wrap up our trip.
If there are any other places you can recommend eating at in Hobart please leave it in the comments. I will love you forever.
