Our research on Hobart indicated that Jackman & McRoss Bakery-Café is a place that we definitely have to visit because it's a Hobart institution. The café is located in historic Battery Point and it's worth a visit just to gaze at the display cabinet full of mouth-watering pies, pastries and tarts.

We went there for breakfast and took a long time to decide on our orders. Everything on the Blackboard specials sounded delicious. We finally settled on Chorizo, Caramelised Onion and Cheese Pastry, Poached Eggs with Spinach, Caramelised Onion and Aioli on Sourdough, Savoury Pastry and Bratwurst Panini. The pastry for the Chorizo, Caramelised Onion and Cheese Pastry was crispy and buttery which complemented the filling nicely. It also came with tomato sauce that you can spread on the pastry. The poached eggs in the Poached Eggs with Spinach had runny yolks that were contrasted perfectly by the tangy aioli.

If you prefer a simple breakfast, their menu has a good selection of croissants, Brioche buns, Danish, muffins and breads. We tried the plain Croissant, Almond Croissant and Scrambled Egg wrapped in Salmon on Danish Pastry on our second breakfast visit. Their simple pastries tasted as delicious as the elaborate dishes.

We enjoyed the breakfast so much that we went back there for lunch one day. We tried their Corned Beef Sandwich, Lamb Baguette and Bacon & Egg Panini. Although the food was delicious, we much prefer their breakfast dishes. The Corned Beef Sandwich had bread that was soft and the corned beef filling was set off wonderfully by the green salad and cheese. Bacon & Egg Panini had bacon that went perfectly well with fluffy scrambled eggs and slices of tomato.

The place was cosy and the staff were all very friendly. However, we would have preferred much bigger tables. All their tables were the typical small round café tables. The dishes were all served on huge white plates so we had a hard time putting everything on the tiny table.

Their lunches very appetising. Even a simple corned beef sandwich has been present in a very appealing way.

Tassie is mine and my husband's favourite place to visit, but we've never been here. Will definitely have to keep it in mind for our next trip!
