Coffee, coffee everywhere, as much as you can drink.
The Two Girls proclaim Hobart as Australia’s, if not the world’s, coffee capital.
Here’s five places we love for coffee in no particular order.
1. Atlas Espresso
Walking through Hobart’s bus mall on any given business day you’ll often meet a queue spilling out of the doorway waiting for their morning caffeine hit.
Don’t be put off by the crowds, consider it a sign of good things to come. And don’t be too concerned about the wait. Atlas Espresso churns out the coffee. With three people working the coffee
machine, one pulling shots, one steaming milk, the third pouring the coffee and handing you your beverage, they make between 500-600 coffees a day, sometimes up to 1000.
This Girl loves loves loves their coffee and my regular includes the best Monte Carlo in Hobart. They know their customers by name.
Find them at Shop 2/ 18 Elizabeth Street, Hobart.
They’re open 6.00 am – 4.00 pm weekdays.

And another on their awesome Monte Carlos yum yum here
2. Westend Pumphouse
The Lovely Deputy does coffee here most days and is a Saturday morning regular and why not? The coffee quality is consistent and it’s a great space.
Find them at 105 Murray Street.
They’re open Tuesday – Saturday, 8.30 am – late and Sunday and Monday 8.30 am – 4.00 pm.
Discovered en route to the Royal Hobart Hospital one morning, Pilgrim is now another regular. There are no bad coffees here as evidenced by the constant stream of regulars.
Through its Liverpool Street entrance, Property of Pilgrim, you’ll find a tremendous brunch menu. I so reveled in my French toast brioche in a violet crème anglaise and Pilgrim potpourri (freeze-dried berries) that I promised Chef Christian Ryan my first born.
Find them at 48 Argyle Street, Hobart.
They’re open Monday – Friday, 6.30 am – 4.45 pm and Saturday – Sunday, 7.00 am – 3.30 pm.
Find Property of Pilgrim around the corner at 52 Liverpool Street.
They’re open Monday to Sunday, 7.00 am – 3.00 pm.
Here’s when we first went for breakfast at Pilgrim
4. Jackman and McRoss
Your morning coffee is determined by your schedule. There was a time I was in the Jackman and McRoss vicinity a lot. Not so much these days but when I do drop by I know I can rely on the coffee. There’s plenty to eat too with BIG serves of practically everything. Dark corners in an out of the way location are perfect for clandestine encounters. Just an observation.
Find them at 4 Victoria Street, Hobart.
They’re open Monday to Friday, 7.00 am – 4.30 pm.
This is the last time we visited here
Villino is a Hobart coffee institution. They do seriously good coffee and sell a range of baked goods sourced from Zum and Manna Bakery and some they make themselves. Café Manager Ellie is warm and welcoming and it’s the sort of small café This (klutzy) Girl gets a little nervous in. More big crowds of devotees at Villino.
Find them at 30 Criterion Street, Hobart.
They’re open Monday – Friday 8.00 am – 4.30 pm and Saturday 9.00 am – 3.00 pm.
5 a. Kara
This Girl has a soft spot for Kara. It’s long standing and it’s the place the Lovely Deputy and I go every other morning for coffee and an awesome muffin. It’s convenient and they know us. We’re part of the furniture now. It’s like our public love shack. But don’t let that put you off.
They’ve also got a sustainability and locavore bent.
We like the experience as much as the coffee.
Find them at 119 Liverpool Street, Hobart.
They’re open Monday – Friday, 7.30 am – 4.00 pm and Saturday, 8.00 am – 3.00 pm.
