It’s the Sunday morning conundrum in Tasmania. You want coffee like any other day, but your options are limited, even in the CBD in the busiest mall in Hobart. Still, you could do worse than Jamaican Mist.
Lots of seating, booths and tables out the front for some people watching or paper reading. Lots (at least 3 times) the amount of cakes, muffins and sandwiches in the case at the front and lots of options for fresh made food as well.
I ordered my usual flat white and a bubbacino for my little person and we shared a muffin- we drank them there but ordered them in takeaway cups (bad for the environment, I know. But any parent knows sometimes you have to leave in a hurry if a toddler meltdown happens. At least take your coffee with you!) My coffee wasn’t amazing: very hot and consequently very bitter. Had to let it sit lidless for several minutes just to get it to a drinkable temperature. Within seconds the little one knocked her drink down and it splattered everywhere- the crew saw this and brought us out another one without having to ask, even with an extra marshmallow and some shortbread biscuits.
The staff was pleasant and friendly (also hard to find!) even if my coffee wasn’t spectacular. Better than Maccas a few blocks away or Hudson’s around the corner.
