We visited Jackman and McRoss a number of times - a hazard of staying two doors down when in Hobart. There are SO many sweet and savour options multiple visits are necessary. The coffee is nice and why not have a cake while there. The pies are worth trying as well, particularly the steak and potato - yumm. The wait... More

Set in gorgeous Battery Point, this was the highlight meal and location of my trip. The breakfast was lovely - I had scrambled eggs wrapped in smoked salmon on pastry. It was not too heavy and the taste amazing. The cottage where the cafe is located is lovely and this is my favourite part of hobart, and it is a... More

A lovely, genuine coffee shop - we had breakfast here ten years ago and it is still just as good - a fresh, clean eating place with the biggest croissant and yummy hot cross buns - lovely art work on the walks too

After eating at Daci and Daci our first morning in Hobart, and finding it overpriced, we decided to try Jackman and McRoss and were thrilled that we did. First of all, their selection is terrific. Besides the many beautiful baked items, there are many breakfast options that are creative and delicious. My husband and I shared a wonderful scrambled egg/avocado/ham/tomato... More

Want to grab a bite before dinner? Want to try some local and fresh bakery? This is the place to go!! I tried the chicken and mushroom with relish and it was heaven!! Plus the service was good! Must go if you're in Battery Point

We went to Jackson and McRoss for breakfast on our last day in Hobart, it was such a pleasant surprise, it was a toss up between Savoury or Sweet breakfast treats, and I have to say it it was the best coffee in Tasmanian. Reasonable priced to boot.

We were 3 friends out for morning tea we all had a lovely coffee and the cakes were delicious. They have a small selection of gluten free produce. All seved by very friendly staff. If you are in Battery Point I would strongly recommend a visit to this gorgeous cafe in a beautiful location.
