Best coffee shops in Tasmania
Ecru Coffee might be one of Hobart’s smallest cafes, but it has a big place in coffee-lover’s hearts. It’s the hole-in-the-wall little sister cafe to Villino, which is where three Probat roasters hum along daily at the offsite coffee roastery, producing finely tuned, delicious coffee.
This pretty waterfront cafe at the end of the famed Brooke Street Pier in Hobart has it all: great views, local gourmet goodies and delicious coffee. The coffee here is roasted by local roaster, Zimmah Coffee. It’s fresh as can be.
Grab a brew to takeaway if the weather is nice for a stroll down the pier.
This shipping container coffee shop at the Springs is 720m above sea level. Serving locally roasted coffee, drinks and eats, it’s one of the best spots for coffee in Tasmania. Sip on a simple long black or try their Tumeric latte.
The ideal refuel spot for hikes on Mt. Wellington.
Small-fry is tiny in size but mighty in quality. It has a great reputation for its freshly baked pastries and doughnuts, which sell out fast, so get down here early. There’s communal benches for a walk-in brunch or just get your brew to go.
You’ll find this fantastic coffee spot in the middle of nowhere at Pirates Bay Lookout. Cubed Espresso Bar serves freshly roasted coffee from its micro-roastery in Nubeena, as well as a range of handmade sweet treats.
This boutique cafe in Salamanca Square will impress even the most serious coffee snobs. Parklane Espresso. There’s a great range of roasts, as well as rotating Single Origins. Be sure to try Parklane’s own brand of bottled Indian chai – it’s absolutely divine.
Born in Brunswick is a Melbourne-cool cafe that’s passionate about coffee. Get your caffeine fix in the form of espresso, batch brew and pour-over filter coffee, to name but a few. Their current blend is roasted by Industry Beans, while their single origin and filter offerings change frequently.
