Five best coffee spots in Hobart
Coffee is a personal thing.
What one person loves, another… anyway, I have chosen this sample of places to visit during your stay in Hobart for their coffee or location or both, with five more listed at the end that I haven’t been to but have been highly recommended to me by locals as having fantastic coffee.
Salamanca Arts Centre
This cafe hidden at the end of an arcade in the Salamanca Arts Centre is a real gem. It’s surrounded by art galleries and stores and just a few steps from the bustling Salamanca Market on a Saturday. Breakfast is highly recommended – try the fruit-and-yoghurt ‘trifle’ or the chilli beans on sourdough.
Fullers Bookshop – Afterword Cafe
131 Collins Street
In the centre of Hobart’s CBD, the bright and airy cafe at the rear of the Fullers Bookstore is a good spot to stop and leaf through your latest book purchase. You must buy the book first!
93 Goulburn Street, West Hobart
At the bottom of one of West Hobart’s very steep hills is this tiny cafe known for its wonderful bread and coffee.
27 Hunter Street
The courtyard at the rear of the old IXL Jam Factory building is a good spot to shelter for a while when you are wandering around the Constitution Dock area of Hobart. There is often an exhibition in the courtyard to look at while you wait, such as art or furniture from a nearby store.
The Cupping Room
105 Murray Street
Choose from a wide range of coffee blends in this warehouse style cafe.
Five on my list to try next:
1) Villino Espresso – 30 Criterion Street
2) Island Espresso – 171 Elizabeth Street
3) Pilgrim Coffee – 48 Argyle Street
4) Oomph! – 60 Liverpool Street
5) Jam Jar – 45 Hampden Road, Battery Point
