Small Fry is my favourite discovery since arriving in Hobart! The food is interesting and delicious, with lots of locally sourced (and foraged) ingredients, top-notch coffee and a great atmosphere, as everyone in the teeny cafe is seated around the kitchen watching the chef prepare each dish. He’s a culinary wizard; one moment wielding the blow torch to finish off the perfect fried egg, the next delivering a precise sprinkling of chives to the the top of a basil and heirloom tomato salad, an artfully laid pickle and a scattering of micro herbs to accompany a three-cheese toastie. Of particular note (I hasten to add) is the Irish waiter, whose glorious presence added subtly (but significantly!) to the overall impeccable caliber of the cafe. I recommend you greet him warmly upon arrival and request an immediate, steady and constant flow of coffee while you watch whatever delectable dish you’ve ordered being brought to life.
We came for breakfast today and both said it’s the nicest breakfast we have ever had!! We had the black pudding with bacon and it was amazing. It was busy when we were in but the wait wasn’t long at all (especially compared to some melbourne cafes) and it was really nice watching the chef make our food! We will definitely be back and be recommending to everyone coming to Hobart. Thanks guys �
