This place is different. Hubby had the double dog, which I thought was brave of him. This was an untoasted hotdog bun with 2 hotdogs on it. Instead of tomato sauce they covered the bun in a chilli Mulberry jam. It didn't look appealing, but he enjoyed it. I was only brave enough to order the wedges. These were local...

Cute little cafe I stumbled upon while driving through Tasmania - totally worth slight detour or passing to stay on your way west. Fantastic food and service by the friendly staff. Try the coconut cookies!

Staff extremely helpful with the menu, and Gluten Free options great. Food very tasty. It is a friendly atmosphere and they had a lovely warm fire as it was a rather cold day. I would recommend Jacksons when travelling through Hamilton.

The only reason we stoped in Hamilton was to change drivers but we noticed Jackson's Emporium and decided to check it out and we are glad we did. The owners couldn't be nicer, making sure the fire was stocked up on a chilly day. The coffee was excellent as was the food. We ended up also buying some preserves and...

I just had an enjoyable 4 nights at McCauley’s Cottage. it’s a lovely old home with warm fire places and so much character. I’m sure that this old home would have a story or 2 it could tell. It was great having Jackson Emporium almost next door, for some fine food, coffee and much more. you could eat there or...

The signs outside offer an amazing array of tempting delights to lure the weary traveller, but it is only once you step inside that the full glory of this truly "Derwent Valley" experience really astounds you. A menu to rival many city venues, an extensive range of coffee and teas. Everything as local as local could be. Then spend time...

Lunch, breakfast or dinner - Roger and Kim never fail to provide an excellent meal. The coffee is fantastic and the range of teas wonderful. The best Chai tea in Tasmania too.... Made from real tea! Or you can have a powdered form if you'd prefer. Just the best place to relax by the fire, check out local produce and...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We began as a boutique accommodation business with McCauley's Cottage which is a a classy sandstone house circa 1846, set up with a fruit and veggie garden for comfortable self-catering. In 2000 we expanded our accommodation with additional self-catering and re-opened Jackson's Emporium (an 1856 sandstone shop) as a reception centre and tourism retail business, specialising in Derwent Valley products and visitor services. An Emporium is a 'centre of commerce' like a Department Store with different activities based under the one roof. We have called the Accommodation Department Hamilton Heritage Holiday Homes to give us a collective name for our groups of accommodation properties. We set about renovating, rebuilding and planting fruit trees and a vegetable garden. Now our brand new commercial kitchen is licensed for food production of all sorts and we are operating a vertically integrated garden-to-plate-and-package cafe and delicatessen. The theme of The Cafe at Jackson's is healthy local food. All recipes are low sugar and low salt, all of our cakes are made on the premises and gluten free. Mulberries are one of our specialties. The black English mulberry is one of the finest fruits grown in Tasmania. It's rare because it's slow growing and difficult to transport. During the three month season we sell punnets of fresh fruit, we make jam, ice cream and sauce. Customers in the cafe love the mulberry jam on their scones .... The Mulberry Chilli Sauce gets rave revues with wedges and hot dogs. We get fabulous feedback from customers about our food, our customer service and our great coffee, as well as our local cheeses and home made ice creams. We open late, 7 days a week (except Christmas Day and Good Friday) The property has lots of character. It offers several different and interesting spaces. The Parlour is great with a warm fire in winter. Customers love the outdoor tables when the sun shines, which it does quite often here. We are working on a long term plan to continue the renovation and expansion of this historic property. Currently underway is construction of new toilets with access for people in wheelchairs. Originally there was a cobblestoned courtyard, eventually this will be additional outdoor dining. ... more   less
