The "Most Delicious Pies" ... in the World...Ever!!!

Thanks to trip Advisor contributors we knew about Jackman & McRoss. Way, Way Beyond expectation... The flavour, balance of seasoning, texture, delicate layers of pastry... impressive, in class of their own! Europe may have invented the humble meat pie but Jackman & McRoss "Own It" Yes... read more

Staying at the Henry Jones hotel we wanted brunch,so we drove four minutes to historic Battery Point. Jackmans Cafe was full but we only waited three minutes for a table. Our group ordered a perfectly poached egg, the creamiest scrambled eggs enveloped by smoked salmon,and a totally dazzling scallop pie. A gem ..

The Hop on hop off bus driver recommended we try the scallop pie so we did the 90 minute circuit and came back and sure enough it was delicious and the curried lamb soup of the day was yum and a very good sized serving. we recommend this place to anyone who visits Hobart

Tucked away behind the Salamanca Market in historic BatteryPoint is this not so little gem of a cafe. You will be spoilt for choice...

It's such a wonder to just walk into J&M with their array of delectable and beautiful pastries! The smells will get to you. Cheaper if you take away
