Description: A hidden gem embracing the views of Hobart's picturesque waterfront, Harbour Lights has long been a haven for locals, foodies and tourists alike. Whether you prefer a satisfying big breakfast, a traditional scallop pie for lunch or authentic Italian cuisine for dinner, the Harbour Lights team can offer you an experience to be savoured. Team all this with a perfect Belaroma coffee, T2 leaf tea or choose from a menu of predominantly Tasmanian and Italian wines, beers and liqueurs.

We had a quick lunch there at the tail end of the rush period and only had a limited time before we needed to catch the Mona Ferry. The staff were very friendly, attentive and our food and coffee's came out very promptly.
Two of us had the lightly curried scallop pie and salad and this was excellent-lots of scallop filling and the curry didn't overpower the subtle scallop flavour. Our third companion had a patisserie and this was both fresh and tasty.
The cafe looks out across to the ferry wharves next to Constitution Dock and has a warm and welcoming decor

We went to have breakfast here - sadly we waited and waited and waited for service - when we had the temerity to ask to place an order one girl said in a short manner " will be with you shortly " a couple of minutes later she came back and announced to is that she can't do everything at the same time : we left without ordering - there was no need for this a simple apology for keeping us waiting for so long would have been nice - but sharing your problems you should do with your boss - not your customers

I went here for lunch last month, and it was really good. I had calamari & salad and it was great - the chips were fabulous. Went there for dinner tonight and it was OK. Food was only just warm - and we waited for half an hour. Staff were very friendly though!

It was great to find this venue that had a great selection of choices for our breakfast. It was close to our hotel so was ideal. It was wonderful to see so many locals buying also take away snacks.
Definitely would go to again when in Hobart. Even the kids travelling with us loved the eggs Benedict and the delicious Hollandaise sauce.

The food is lovely and reliable, the coffee is good and the location is exceptional. Great for breakfast and for quick snack toasties after a day around the market.
