Tassie Delight – Raincheck Lounge

Wanted to continue with another Tassie post because it seems like not many people have gone to Tassie before and I’d love to share with you guys all the hidden treasures I found in Hobart 🙂

Today, I’d like to introduce *drum-rolls please* “Raincheck Lounge” once again in North Hobart and conveniently across the road from Sweet Envy. Hahaha that’s how we found it! Mr Bao suggested we have breakfast at Raincheck Lounge because he liked the name when Googling for cafes around the area ~ so off we go!

Raincheck Lounge is a nice medium sized cafe on the main street (Elizabeth Street) with a hippie type of atmosphere, it offers the usual cafe food but BETTER 🙂

It was packed when we arrived at around 10:30am. We had to wait for a few minutes because we needed a bigger table to fit 6 people, the staff there were quite friendly and gave us a nice spacious table ~

We ordered from the breakfast menu, but they are open for dinner Wednesday to Saturday and I overheard another table complimenting the Tapas were really good! Damn! I was flying back to Melb the same day…guess there’s always next time ~

Most of us ordered something different and I was able to taste everyone’s dish YAY for me hehe but I have a thing for muesli so I got the Bircher Muesli ~ it was SO good lol! I loved how they used real vanilla beans to make the homemade yogurt! Yum yum YUM!

Mr Bao and his mate KP got the Big Breakfast ~ a little TOO big for me, but they seemed to really like it!
Ms W got the Eggs Florentine – she’s never had it before and she really liked it, even though she thought the hollandaise sauce was a little too rich ~ I had a taste and liked it! It was a good balance between the lemon and butter flavour 🙂
While Ms E and Mr Chef got the Eggs Benedict which they really enjoyed! I’m such a meat lover! I liked the Eggs Benedict more than the Florentine 🙂 And i forgot to mention the eggs to perfectly poached ~ Sigh i’ve failed so many times at home lol
One of the disappointments were the coffees, not really that exciting…my mocha (on the left) was quite bland and even though it looks quite pretty with the chocolate dots on the side…it just wasn’t as nice as I expected it to be. While Mr Bao thought his cappuccino wasn’t strong enough.
Overall, a very nice cafe and even though coffees weren’t great, the food was to die for! So don’t miss out and maybe you can try out their tapas and let me know if they’re any good 🙂

    I really love the big breakfast! Probably one of the best I’ve tried:) The bacon was well cooked, tender but yet keeps the crispy edge~ The mushroom has a well balanced buttery taste. I even ordered the holladaise sause to have the eggs! Yum!! makes me wanna go there again!

      Hahaha you basically wanted to DRINK that hollandaise sauce 🙂 so where should we go back first Sydney or Tassie? ~

      Ahh really? That’s such a shame! Where did you go last time you were here? You’ve gotta go to Tassie soon 🙂 Such a beautiful place!

    Oh my gosh, that place is so cute! I love the clouds in the walls 🙂 And I think I’d like that bircher muesli almost as much…
