    I'd suggest a short walk into the city to visit Yellow Bernard. Commercial non-sponsor link removed Yellow Bernard.

    If you want a nice lunch (not sure of the coffee) at a famous Hobart haunt walk up Kellys Steps at Salamanca and follow the road up to the corner to Jackman & McRoss. Awesome food!!!!

    It's a year a go, but when I was last there I found a good coffee at Tricycle at the Salamanca Arts Centre where they were using Five Senses beans.

    I'll be in Hobart in a couple of weeks, too.
    Going to check out Mona and the Salamanca Markets, amongst other things.

    Not keen on going to Tas and having a Vic roasters coffee, I can get 5 Senses down the street, here at home.
    I'd love to hear from anyone who has had a good Tassie roasted brew.

    Cheers!

    Pretty sure Island Espresso are roasting their own again.

    Edit: Just checked, they are using Zimmah from Hobart.

    Yellow Bernard has their Project Yellow in development which is roasted locally. Must say it is coming along pretty nicely.

    If you need a fix in Hobart CBD on the weekend, your only options are Pilgrim and Villino. IMO of course

    Agree re. Project Yellow - a tad light for my taste, but seems popular with most. Better as an espresso than in milk, IMO. Island Espresso in Elizabeth St are open Sauturday to ~2pm.

    Correct! :-) Zimmah's cafe is coming along nicely - was there lunchtime today. Going to be a cracking facility when finished - with a window to view the roasting in-house.

    9 days flew last that quickly! Anyway I survived mostly on my own roast, porlex and aeropress. I did find a few good ones. As strange as it sounds. I found one near battery point called the Pollen Tea Room. Quite nice. He made a macchiato when I ordered a piccolo and reckoned that was how he was taught.... Anyway he did do a proper short black with a local roast. So all good in the end. Took a punt when we were having breakfast there and it turned out all right!

    We started chatting and he started getting interested in a corretto roast setup... I had a laugh.

    Sorry for the delay, in reporting back.
    We had a great time in Hobart, also had some nice coffee but needed more time to check everyone out.
    Some odd hours are kept by some establishments, despite the number of visitors. (pic 3), sign on the door says 'closed' :-(

    Island Espresso (Zimmah) was great (pic 1), the best tho' was Villino, stayed and had a latté as well (pic 2).

    A couple of coffees in places the other half wanted to visit but don't warrant a mention for their coffee.

    Went to The Pollen Tea Room for lunch, the tall ships were in town and there were quite a few people about.
    Walked in at 2 o'clock for lunch but the chef had already done the dishes and had her eye on the door……….

    Pilgrim was closed and their Facebook page said they used Axil from Melbourne, good coffee but Melbourne roaster…………..

    Looking forward to going back with more time to get around.

    Just got back from 4 days in Hobart. Was very impressed with the general quality of the coffee. Having stayed in Battery Point, I can confirm the views already expressed that Pollen Tea Rooms does a seriously good coffee. The other place I was impressed with was Atlas Espresso on Elizabeth Street. I also had a decent cup in Retro Cafe and was slightly dissapointed with Trycicle Cafe, the latter two based in Salamanca. I don't know how much commerical roasting goes in in Tassie, I often noticed Melbourne roaster beans used (eg. Atlas uses DiBella).

    Anyway, good place for coffee and for all food for that matter.
