5 off-the-CBD circuit coffees
Hobart is not hard up for a good coffee.
Fortunately it’s not just city-centric.
There’s plenty of good coffee outside of the
Here’s five off-the-beaten track places we love for
coffee in no particular order.
Capulus is a hole in the wall type coffee shop with
a difference. While they only serve in take-away cups, if you want to sit and
drink your coffee, you can. Out front seated on a milk crate or in the space
behind the café shared with Bespoke Hair.
Find them at 271 Elizabeth Street.
They’re open Monday to Friday, 6.00 am – 4.00 pm
and Saturday, 7.00 am – 12 noon.
Sometimes you just want a coffee to go, you’re in a
hurry, you can’t find a park, or it might just be cold, Tassie morning,
Bridgewater Jerry, cold.
Gioconda drive-thru coffee has opened on Main Road,
Moonah (between Hopkins and Fleet Streets).
Good coffee is a big deali n Moonah. The options are limited. Now you can get a great coffee without getting out of your car.
For more on Gioconda, here’s our post.
They are co-located with Excellente Dry Cleaning at
131 Main Road, Moonah.
They’re open Monday to Friday, 6 am – 2.30 pm and
from 7 am Saturday.
Pretty much the entire Eastern Shore knows about
Aproneers, but on the other side of the Derwent River we can get a little
Café and grocer, Aproneers prides themselves on
sustainable, local and ethical product.
They’re keeping the food miles low, sourcing up to
90 per cent of what they use and sell within 50 kilometres of their premises.
Some of it is grown in Lindisfarne backyards.
They do really good Villino coffee.
For more on Aproneers, find our post here.
Visit them at 145 East Derwent Highway, Lindisfarne
between 7.30 am and 7.00 pm.
One of the things we don’t have so much of is the
village-feel that comes when enclaves emerge in bigger cities. Western shore
cafes and restaurants have populated along our commercial strips: Salamanca,
the CBD, North Hobart.
Off the main drag of North Hobart, away from the hustle and bustle of Elizabeth Street, you can find a sunny corner and excellent coffee.

You’ll find Providence at – 42 Newdegate Street,
They are open Tuesday – Friday 7am to 3:30pm and
Saturday 8am to 4:30pm.
North Hobart’s stand out is Berta. In this thriving
café you might find yourself feeling just a little smug to get a seat. It serves up got
good coffee. But even if it didn’t, This Girl would still be there with bells
on because the food is gorgeous.
Seriously, I still think about the Gingerbread
hotcake, caramelised quince, pecans and vanilla creme fraiche.
This is when we discovered Berta.
