This article is intended to give an overview for visitors to Hobart about the cafes and restaurants in the city.  There are two basic sections in it:  one dealing with Location (to help people find a suitable eatery nearby) and Dining Style (to give a feel for cuisine types and budgets).  Every place should therefore get a couple of entries.

This is not the place for rampant touting.  Please keep descriptions of your favourite place to a sentence or two. 

Nor is it the place for reviews.  They go here.   And the reviews are worth reading, too.
