Hobart's Criterion Cafe is best known for good coffee, fresh food and a buzzy atmosphere. Tables are set upstairs, downstairs and street-side, and they're constantly filled with chatty diners enjoying some time out. Grab a pastry or cake or go for something more substantial from the Mod Oz cafe menu. Dishes are simple but fresh and you'll be surprised at how easy they are on the hip pocket.

Upstairs, inside and street-side, around a large communal table, at benches or tables for two, this used to be one of the best coffee and light lunch places in the city. A few ownership changes brought a few ups, but mostly downs until the latest new face – the young chef George Falconer and a young team behind the coffee machine – began turning things round. Now it’s once again heart-starting a large, early morning coffee hit-and-run brigade and attracting an eclectic crowd of office workers, shopping mums, alternates, youngies and oldies for lunch and in-betweens.

There’s always a good selection of cakes and biscuits to enjoy while reading the newspapers and a blackboard displays the daily specials. These are often comprised variously of simple bruschettas and salads, running to heart-warming soups (like creams of parsnip) to wintery braises, egg and bacon pie and Asian-accented stir-fries. Servings are generous, there’s a small, well-priced wine list to help things go down and the service is casual and… well, casual.
