Tricycle Café and Bar is a delightful café housed in one of the striking sandstone warehouses that line Salamanca Place in Hobart. The food is excellent and the coffee some of the best in town. Service is also relaxed, yet professional, with Megan Quill and Adam James overseeing their jewel with a careful eye.
We go here for breakfast and order the chilli beans served on sourdough toast or the delightful, fresh-tasting breakfast 'trifle' in a glass which sees grains, stewed fruits and yoghurt mixed together in a tall glass. The scrambled eggs are also good.
For morning and afternoon tea there is also an interesting selection of cakes and biscuits including decorated cupcakes that add to the experience.
It is also a regular lunch-time haunt for us. We go here for the daily specials such as the fantastic soups or the pork meatballs served with a fresh salad or one of the Mexican-influenced stews that have incredible depth of flavour.
While you are waiting for your coffee to arrive you can admire the array of interesting tricycles hanging from the ceiling or the display of photos on the walls depicting tricycle events.
We should say a word about the coffee as well because it is not just the delicious food that attracts us to Tricycle. They are very serious about their coffee here and always have a single origin available. Recently we have been enjoying a beautifully round, rich and mellow Guatemalan Santa Paula single origin and an El Salvador Finka Alaska. Another that has beautiful, mild acidity and a lovely round mouthfeel is the organic Estrella from Bolivia made from Caturra, Typica and Catual beans.
This is a must-visit venue!
