I have eaten here numerous times, such wonderful service and awesome breakfast food. A great location, looking out over the harbour with heaps of seating. Such a cute little cafe perfect for a catch up, date, or just for a coffee.

We came across this little gem by chance and were fortunate to get a table on a Saturday night. The service was excellent and the food divine. We left with a delicious takeaway dessert for later because the servings were so generous. Highly recommended.

A friend had recommended this restaurant to us and we were not disappointed. Although it was 2 p.m. I had the big breakfast and my wife a tapas plate. Both were generous servings and scrumptious. Great service and location

Just superb Italian food, prepared with love and care, and served by happy waitresses. We have tried the pizzas (the best in Hobart), the spinach canneloni,and the lasagne. The serves are gigantic, so make sure you go hungry. The wine list is interesting, and reasonably...More

The salads are the main vegan option for lunch/dinner. For breakfast the gluten free breakfast or the breakfast bruschetta can be made vegan with the removal of the toast.

A hidden gem embracing the views of Hobart's picturesque waterfront, Harbour Lights has long been a haven for locals, foodies and tourists alike. Whether you prefer a satisfying big breakfast, a traditional scallop pie for lunch or authentic Italian cuisine for dinner, the Harbour Lights team can offer you an experience to be savoured. Team all this with a perfect Belaroma coffee, T2 leaf tea or choose from a menu of predominantly Tasmanian and Italian wines, beers and liqueurs.
