Went to the state theatre for a morning session , and looked for a light lunch close by. Found this little gem. We both had corn fritters with salmon and was delicious. The service was great , only thing was they had already run out of our first choice this early in the day. [12.15pm). service was good and prices... More

This was a pleasant place to spend my first morning in Hobart (a Saturday). Good coffee, but the food was average.

It's busy and quite trendy. We often meet friends here for lunch. The food is not great but usually interesting and not expensive. The service is often confused, wrong orders, orders omitted and the like. No disasters except.... The last visit I need the WC. Went inside and was confronted by the shape of a male on one door and... More

I have been here several times before, but I really enjoyed eating lunch on this occasion. The three of us ordered different dishes and they were all really tasty. Service was excellent. Worth a visit.

We were walking up the Main Street looking for a pub to have a beer. Came across Rain Check Lounge. We sat at an outside table and ordered a glass of wine each. Left it to the waitress to choose a Tasmanian Shiraz and a white. She made good choices. After sipping on our wine we became a bit moorish... More

IMO this restaurant is trying to be too trendy for its own good. The menu and dishes blend was not exactly complementary in flavours and the octopus main dish we a real disappointment for my husband - 3 small pieces of ocy and "fat chorizo potatoes" were slithers at best. My fish was good and filling but the entree we... More

After seeing this cafe constantly full during our recent stay, we were pleased to finally find a free table for afternoon tea! A funky little space, obviously frequented by locals in the know. We had a odd combination of food (our choices entirely, not the menu's fault!) with a housemade Granola with Yoghurt and a toasty Croque Monsieur along with... More

Rain Check is very popular with locals and visitors alike. We had coffee and light brekky there 4 times and had late afternoon glass of wine on New Year's Eve. Great food, friendly, efficient staff. A must see venue if you're visiting Hobart.

This cafe is a little treasure in North Hobart! I am sure that all the locals are aware as yesterday being a Monday it was very crowded. They have all day breakfast dining during the week and my wife chose the "asian style chicken omelette" and complimented the chef as it was one of the best she had tasted. I... More

On an evening in North Hobart we called in at Rain Check Lounge and received an extremely warm welcome, despite it being a relatively busy night. Our server looked after us very well, recommended dishes and wine and also ensured our dinner was served in enough time to make a local movie. The food was good, with a nice varied... More
