“A great start to a Saturday! Wander through the stalls browsing through a plethora of goods for sale. Grab a coffee, try some gin, fresh fruit and vegies, or just sit on the sidewalk and people gaze.”

“If you're in Hobart, this cafe is in an old service station. Great place to go for breakfast or visit the bar at the rear for drinks at night. Sit outside or in. Cool vibe. This area in North Hobart is often missed by tourists, it has other great bars, cafes and shopping.”
