PROFILE BY BEST RESTAURANTS

REVIEWED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
When Raincheck Lounge opened, chef/owner Carl Windsor said he wanted it to be a "funky little cafe", and he's nailed it precisely. Visit on a Sunday afternoon when there's live music, the tapas and red wine are flowing, and there's cocky-spiked hair aplenty seated at the tables and lounging in the lounges and it's probably the funkiest place in town. In other words, it's great. The atmosphere, that is. And the food is just as good with well-cooked dishes (like Sicilian meatballs in tomato ragout, braised rabbit and mushroom pie, and beef shin ravioli with sage) that set it well apart from the cafe mainstream.

The wine list is also anything but Hobart mainstream and you can have Jansz Pink, an Alsatian ‘05 Josmeyer Riesling, a Chapoutier ‘03 Chateauneuf du Pape, or a '94 Henschke Mount Edelstone with your bowl of spiced chickpeas. Breakfast and brunch moves beyond the raisin toast and eggs Benedict territory to Spanish omelette with real chorizo and Bok's wood-smoked bacon and house-cooked baked beans – beautifully smoky and paprika flavoured, it's a dish that's guaranteed to clear the residue of last night's over-indulgences. Accompany the beans with a bloody Mary and you'll be set for day. Failing that, you could have coco pops with pomegranate and green tea. Funky indeed.
