We waited 40 minutes for a simple lunch. No apologies from the staff. The quinoa salad was very good. The Mexican sandwich was mostly bread with very little filling. I would not return.

This place should be the tops - it has a good location and great atmosphere. Service was try-hard but shoddy. The lady who took the order was distracted, kept looking away at something going on a few metres away, left us mid order to go and do something else. She was polite and pleasant but made us feel second class... More

Definitely visit jam packed! We went there for brekky and we were blown away by what we walked in to. Incredible set up, great history and fantastic staff. Being a hot chocolate lover, this is hands down the best hot choc I've ever had! Big call, but honestly incredible! We had to go back again the next day.

We had coffee here a couple of times while staying at the Henry Jones. The coffee, service and ambience were all good so we also enjoyed our last breakfast in Hobart here. We were not disappointed. My husband had the eggs benedict and I enjoyed poached eggs and crispy bacon - cooked to perfection. Would certainly recommend.

I had booked a breakfast table for Saturday morning breakfast with friends. On arrival our table had been given to another party. Table sorted, we found the service efficient. My big breakfast was OK, but nothing to rave about. The coffee was also OK. The atrium provides a good atmosphere and overall it was quite a pleasant experience without being... More

Maria was sweet, attentive, helpful and cheerful. Don't you love a person who loves their work. The food also by the way was excellent and priced right. A fleeting visit to Hobart but Jam Packed is the place to go.

Had the soup of the day. Really good with nice fresh baked bread. Tea with lemon and ginger is also nice. Good spot to just chill and enjoy lunch
