Jackman & McRoss
A Hobart staple and not to be missed. Jackman & McRoss is so much more than a bakery; a delicious and ever-changing selection of breakfasts that offer excellent value for money. Take home their chutneys, jams or a loaf of bread, it’s all 5 star.

Milli Vinilli (formerly Jam Jar Lounge)
It’s hard to put a label on Milli Vinilli because they do a bit of everything. More importantly, they do it well. Breakfast, coffee, lunch, tapas, cocktails & wine. Plus they have free WiFi and a dog-friendly courtyard. Head in for a toasted jaffle or delectable small plate. Read the paper or kick back with friends. You can do it all here.

Da Angelo Italian Restaurant
Traditional Italian food from a restaurant that’s been in the same spot for over 20 years. There’s a reason this place has survived the test of time – it’s good, honest food made fresh. You’ll need to make a booking here, it’s always packed out. Open 7 days for dinner & Fridays for lunch.

Prince of Wales Hotel
The local pub complete with Aussie pub classics, friendly bar staff and great counter meals. This place is popular with locals and a great spot to chat over a beer and get a feel for the area. The Prince of Wales was one of Battery Point’s first pubs and used to look like the Grand Old Duke, but sadly the original building was torn down and rebuilt in the 60’s. Although it looks utilitarian now it has a long history and is remains an iconic part of Hobart. Open 7 days for lunch and dinner. No booking required.

Aki Modern Japanese
We love this place. Yang and his team have given traditional Japanese dishes a modern twist. They honour the flavours of fresh fish and serve up some very pretty meals. Plus Aki has the largest range of sake in Tasmania. Just ask your waiter to pair a sake with your meal. If you’ve tried sake before and haven’t liked it, maybe try again here, they only stock the best.
