Farm Gate Market.
Address: 104 Bathurst St, Hobart TAS 7000, Australia.
Every Sunday, come rain hail or shine, a busy street in the heart of Hobart transforms into a bustling farmers’ market. I captured this line of words from their website. This morning market sells both fresh vegetables, herbs, meats, fruits, flowers, breads and etc. We were here on our second day to buy some fresh vegetables and meats for our dinner. We planned to prepare steamboat at night.
Before I visited this place, I googled online and saw one of the beautiful pictures of a cup of hot coffee with the background of the market. As I walked along the street, I stopped by at one of the mobile coffee stalls and queued up to purchase some. I bought myself a flat white and my friends chose to have hot chocolate.
The flat white is just normal, not fantastic, same goes to the hot chocolate which my friends said it was quite sweet. The main purpose of having a cup of drink is to take a picture of it here, similarly to the beautiful picture I saw from the Internet.
I took a picture of the coffee right at the middle of the street, standing in front of a bread stall while waiting my friends to choose the breads. Is it lovely? On a sunny Sunday with a cup of coffee, walk down the street and get the groceries for tonight’s dinner. This is how the life should be during the weekend.
Drury Lane Cafe
It was a quick catch up with my old college-mate who came down to Singapore for a week of training. It has been years since after our graduation. So, it was great to catch up with him. He wanted to go to a small cafe and have a great brunch.
I randomly googled and came to know this cafe, Drury Lane Cafe. It was a bit hard to find as I am not familiar with the place. Eventually, we found it and we ordered our brunch at the counter and moved to upper storey to sit down.
Smoked Salmon Sandwich with Mushroom
While I googled for this cafe, I came to know a lot of people recommended this Smoked Salmon Sandwich and I wanted to give a try and give my review. Indeed, it was great as per described by other bloggers or patrons.
Everything was perfect for me except that the toasted breads were a bit too hard for me. It was nicely done, tasted good and looked pretty healthy. And, do not look down at its portion, as it was very filling after that.
Hot Chocolate may not be my best choice because I usually go for Latte. For a change, I ordered the Hot Chocolate to warm my heart. It was nicely crafted.
It was a great day with my friend, we shared a lot of thoughts together. Great place, good food and companion.
