Hobart's Tricycle Cafe Bar and restaurant is small and unpretentious, serving reliable cafe fare and great coffee. Found within the Salmanca Art Centre, this casual eatery is rumoured to be one of the city's best and late risers will be pleased to know that breakfast is offered until late alongside some more substantial lunch dishes.

The Salamanca Arts centre is a makeover of the historic Peacock Jam Factory, today full of working artist, craft and designer studios and galleries. Tricycle consists of a tiny bar and cooking area in the foyer of the Peacock Theatre. Originally servicing theatre-goers, newcomers Megan Quill and Adam James have turned what was an unprepossessing space into a very pleasant, relaxing and enjoyable breakfast, lunch and coffee alternative to what’s generally on offer along the Salamanca strip.

If you like your eggs soft poached, hard boiled, over-easy and greasy and smothered in artificial Hollandaise, don’t go to Tricycle. Scrambled are the only eggs on the menu and they do them superbly: three free-range eggs, folded not stirred, soft and buttery, properly seasoned and served either with crispy bacon or smoked salmon and dill with toasted sour-dough on the side. They also do a wonderful breakfast “trifle” of rolled oats, wheat and rye with poached apricots and yoghurt, eye-catchingly layered into tall glasses. Two other menu items lift Tricycle’s food above the usual, run-of-the-mill cafe fare: a salad of Polish sausage, pinkeyes, pickled cucumber and radish dressed with dill and Dijon mustard, and a delicious beetroot salad with walnuts, green beans, rocket and feta, the flavours and combinations of both inspired by Megan’s Latvian/Lithuanian heritage.
