Where to eat & drink with 24 hours in Hobart

Hobart is one of Australia's foodie hot spots, with travellers from around the world heading south to experience fresh produce and innovative menus. From coffee to whiskey and baked eggs to oysters, Hobart's food scene is one to dive into.

With only 24 hours in Hobart, you'll want to be up early to make the most of your day. Head to Pilgrim Coffee for a wake-me-up espresso. They import their beans from some of Melbourne's best roasters including Proud Mary and Sensory Lab.

After you've woken up and explored a little, head into west Hobart to Pigeon Hole Cafe for one of Hobart's best breakfast menus. This hole in the wall is a local favourite so don't leave it too late or you'll be waiting a while for a seat. The menu uses the freshest local produce to pull together dishes like baked eggs with jamon, soused onion and a generous sprinkling of herbs and grana padano.

No trip to Hobart is complete without a visit to MONA, so make the most of it and eat in at The Source, where you can indulge in a menu designed by Philippe Leban (previously of Michelin-starred Bennelong in Sydney). The food is French-inspired and uses native local produce, making for an always exciting meal. The wine list is brilliant too.

An afternoon snack is always necessary for travellers, so head to Battery Point and after you've explored the historic site, pop into Pollen Tea Room for an organic herbal tea or freshly pressed juice. Don't forget a raw caramel slice for a sweet treat on the go.


For dinner, you can't go past Smolt Restaurant, in the heart of Salamanca Square. Here, order from the tapas-style menu and share with friends. Locals love the pork terrine and the oyster plates are just incredible. There is of course classic pizza, pasta and risotto dishes if you're not keen on sharing.


After dinner, taste some of Tassie's best at Lark Distillery, the perfect spot for a night cap. Whiskey is fast-becoming a go-to destination for whiskey and Lark doesn't disappoint, with arguably the best small-batch whiskey in the state.
