Food, Glorious Food - "not to miss" hot-spots from North to South Tassie!
Journeying from Devonport, east to Launceston and south to Hobart, gourmet markets, retail cafes and stores are hidden in unlikely locations and back streets that you musn't miss. Stocking the best in local produce and wine, and a selection of "North Island" (as in, the rest of Australia) and International regional produce, these stores are worth a good half hour browse.
Lanway Cafe, Devonport
2/38 Steele Street Devonport TAS 7310, Australia
Back to Devonport, don't miss the Laneway Cafe, where I discovered the marvellous Bruny Island Cheese, it's owner Nick, who everyone seems to know over the globe. You'll also enjoy the best coffee in Devonport, local vinegars, mustards, snags (sausages) and meals with local wine.
Alps and Amici, Launceston
|Move over America, here are some cupcakes!|
Red Bridge Cafe and Providore
Cambell Town, just south of Lonny on the way to Hobart (no, not Hoby, we're not that tacky!) once used to be where you'd stock up for petrol, maybe a picnic, and keep going. No longer! Stop for lunch at Red Bridge Cafe and Providore for a wonderful meal, wine and that same great coffee, then wander the isles for local produce, seafood, sourdough, wines, honey and all things Tasmanian.
Stay tuned for the best of Hobart!
