Pollen Tea Room, Battery Point, Hobart
My top food moment from my rapidly fading memory of the winter Hobart trip would probably be this adorable little brunch break at the Pollen Tea Room. We had a terribly late sleep-in and took refuge in that we were going to hit one of Hobart’s top rated cafes. It was only a skip away from our Airbnb accommodation too. Being a weekday we had our pick of tables and the staff were friendly and warm, exactly what we came to expect in Hobart.
I went with the baked eggs dish and my dining buddy went with the parsnip pasta. The eggs were great and seasoned with some delightful spices as well as the avocado with the bread itself also being really good. Don’t be fooled by the teensy size of the kitchen, they did some serious meals here. I didn’t get to try enough of the pasta dish but it was an exciting mix and practically the reason I got into spiralizing! The seasoning was great and we really enjoyed the mushrooms and bites of flavour throughout the pasta. It felt clean and light and a good way to start an afternoon of a self-guided walking tour through the harbour.
Pro tip: worth the visit!
