Jackman & McRoss Bakeries, Battery Point, Hobart
Our final taste of a Tasmanian brunch was an early morning bite over at the ever popular Jackman & McRoss. Getting a table in this busy venue was like trying to get all the chocolate at the kids’ easter egg hunts. It’s tough but worthwhile. We didn’t rave about the experience as much as some of the other eaters about but it was an all around very good experience. For us, service was uneasy on this busy morning and the dishes aren’t made to order (it’s all out of a cabinet) but the end items were tasty.
To make sure we had plenty of kilojoules we had an order of the steak and pepper pie, a muffin and my dish of the poached eggs, wilted spinach, aioli, caramelised onion on bread. At the time I thought it was on the pricey end, but it isn’t too bad in retrospect. I enjoyed my dish outside of the fact it wasn’t completely warm but it was fast enough as a tradeoff. Still one to recommend when heading this way and would have liked to try a few more items from the pastry cabinet.
