    What to Expect
    Meet your guide outside the Hobart Town Hall, 50 Macquarie St Hobart and we shall set off on our 3-hour walking tour to explore Hobart's cafes. Hobart's Café Culture walking tour is a great way to explore Hobart and you will be lead away from the usual sites of Salamanca and into the heart of the CBD. Come along and discover the wonderful variety of hidden cafés tucked into laneways, hidden in courtyards and perched at tiny kerbside venues. We will show you a great side of Hobart's café scene, from the stylish to the eclectic. You will be delighted with the people we encounter, the baristas and food devotees who love their city as much as their food. Think of this as a progressive morning tea. With intimate group size of just 8 guests, this is a more personal walking tour, where we cover Hobart's contemporary café culture and delight you with delicious creations that keep Hobartians fed and energised through their working day.

    Thank you Robyn for an enjoyable and very interesting tour of Hobart and its cafes. We've been coming to Hobart for many years and would never have found some of the cafes on our own. The history of the coffee palaces and their importance was something none of us was aware of.
