I absolutely love this little gem. The Raman compares with some of the best ramans I've had in the Asia's. Their Thai diner is incredible with tasty prawn cakes. The service and location can't be beaten. In fact the expensive place down the road (...More

This was one of the only places to get a breakfast and coffee early on a public holiday. A really warm and cosy atmosphere, good service and the food was great. Coffee was excellent, would highly recommend this cafe.

I go there for one and one thing only. The bento box. This is the perfect setup for a tasty week-end lunch, keeping your diet balanced. Quantities are just what is needed, no more. Downside is the price. Fairly expensive in my opinion.

Location and Contact Information

  • Location: South Pacific  >  Australia  >  Tasmania  >  Greater Hobart  >  Hobart
  • Phone Number: +61 3 6224 1447
Jam Jar Lounge opened in 2009, quickly establishing itself as a unique cafe/wine bar perfectly suited in historical Battery Point. Jam Jar was recently selected as one of the Top 10 Cafes in Hobart for 2014 (Tasmanian Food Guide Editor's Choice). In addition to operating as a cafe by day reviving the iconic Aussie "Jaffle" on it's breakfast menu, it also offers authentic Japanese "Ramen" noodles and a range of healthy "Bento Boxes" for lunch. Jam Jar has built a fantastic reputation for it's legendary Friday nights serving Japanese Tapas (small plates) in a wonderful 1920's jazz themed atmosphere. In response to the overwhelming popularity of Friday nights, Jam Jar is now open on Saturday and Sunday evenings. Our wine list always includes several Tasmanian wines which we change regularly. Jam Jar offers several relaxed areas to enjoy your experience including a sunny "dog friendly" courtyard, quiet library with wood fire, or front communal table for larger groups. For those who insist on privacy we invite you to book our back "shed" with seating from 6-8 people. Free Wi-Fi is available during business hours.
