Hobart can still produce surprises, even though we’ve lived here a long time now. Take Picnic Cafe in Mathers Lane, for example. What a little gem!

We stumbled across Picnic Cafe (and Mathers Lane, for that matter) during a Sunday stroll in Hobart. We like to wander aimlessly following our forage at Farm Gate Market, just for fun.

There’s a lovely, sunny courtyard area between Bathurst Street (home of the market) and Liverpool Street. One day, after we’d gathered meat and eggs from our favourite Tasmanian farmers, we ventured into Mathers Lane for a late breakfast at Picnic Cafe.

The service was particularly friendly. We had a fabulously well-priced and well-prepared meal with a notable coffee on the side. And we wouldn’t hesitate to go back again.
