Whether your eyes and stomach are set on the perfect sourdough loaf, a good flaky croissant or a drool-worthy donut, you’ll no doubt find what you’re looking for in this heritage city.

It's time to satisfy those pastry cravings. Read on for the best bakeries Hobart has to offer...

Pigeon Whole Bakers

Pigeon Whole Bakers 

The queues speak for themselves at this Hobart institution. No matter what you choose to order at Pigeon Whole Bakers, you can’t go wrong, whether it’s a jalapeno and spring onion cream cheese bagel, a croissant as buttery and flaky as they come or even a simple loaf of their quality sourdough. Accompanied with fantastic coffee it’s the perfect kickstart to the day, with a handy location in the centre of the city. 

32 Argyle Street, Hobart 



If a croissant warm from the oven is your thing, then best hightail it to Queens Pastry on the edge of the CBD. Each day they share their daily bake times so that you can be ready to pounce as the baked delights emerge from the oven. Have yours filled with ham and cheese or relish a simple and buttery plain croissant. If a sweet craving is beckoning, these folk are also known for their array of delectable donuts.

Daci & Daci

Daci & Daci 

This stalwart on the Hobart scene has been keeping Taswegians well-fed since 2011. Daci & Daci are as close as you’ll find to a French patisserie in Hobart, with a solid offering of finely crafted pastries and cakes alongside sit down breakfast and lunch options. Their original location is nestled nice and close to the Salamanca markets, allowing for an essential post-market cake stop. Duck out to either of their newer stores in the burbs for an elegant sit-down affair.

Jackman & McRoss 

You can’t escape a visit to Tassie without hearing about the famous scallop pies – local scallops enshrined in a curry sauce and buttery pastry. And if you’re chasing one of the best - with some homemade ketchup no less - you’ll find it at Jackman & McRoss. Sweet-toothed visitors will find themselves satisfied too, with their chocolate eclairs and fruit tarts. Be sure to take time afterwards to wander through the quaint and peaceful surrounds of Battery Point.

Lady Hester

Lady Hester 

Do yourself a massive favour and get along to Salamanca Markets. Hidden among the local food and artists you’ll find Lady Hester, creator of some of the best sourdough donuts you may ever devour. Filled with the likes of vanilla custard and salted hazelnuts, lemon curd, dark chocolate and Earl Grey ganache, each of these delicious baked bundles are the result of 48 hours of ferment time, love and labour. It's one of the best bakeries in Hobart for some serious sweet-toothed fun.  

Davey Street, Salamanca Place 

Circle of Life Doughnuts

Circle of Life Doughnuts 

Got a craving for doughnuts? Don't even think about going anywhere other than Circle of Life Doughnuts for your next sweet fix. There are so many varieties to choose from here, that lean into nostalgic flavours like Iced Vovo, Jaffa, hundreds and thousands, apple crumble and Jersey caramel. Paired with excellent coffee, it's easy to see why these holy treats need to be on your hit list. 

Bank Arcade, 66-68 Liverpool Street, Hobart

Little Missy

Little Missy 

This little takeaway nook is loved by locals and visitors alike, with the offerings as beautiful as they are delicious. Savoury and sweet fiends are happy campers at Little Missy Patisserie, where local produce, including free-range eggs, are whipped into the likes of lemon curd creams and caramel, and strawberry mille feuille. They sit oh-so temptingly alongside beautiful savouries, such as cheesy scones and potato and wasabi salad. This is one of the best bakeries in Hobart for wholesome, delicious baked treats the whole family can enjoy. 

151 Argyle Street, Hobart 

Wondr Coffee


We ask...what's better than a coffee and pastry power combo? 

Wondr. welcomes you into the world of Villino Coffee Roasters. It serves as the cellar door to Villino Coffee Roasters, offering a captivating peek behind the scenes where coffee magic unfolds.

Situated in the charming suburb of Moonah, their specialty coffee can be enjoyed for dine in or takeaway alongside delicious pastries from Pigeon Whole Bakers. 

From savouring an expertly crafted espresso to delighting in a special pour over at the onsite brew bar, stocking up on premium beans and brew gear or wolfing down a pear Danish, Wondr. promises an unforgettable coffee experience where every sip tells a story.

43 Sunderland Street, Moonah



This former teddy bear shop was received with open arms by Hobart locals and visitors alike when it opened in 2019. With cosy interiors and some of the nicest staff in the business, you'll be jostling for a seat at Sunbear, and for good reason.  

Aside from a crazy good breakfast and brunch menu, the house-made cakes are next level and highlight the best in-season goodies — think apricot frangipane tart or peach, polenta and lemon upside down cake. They also offer the occasional Pigeon Whole croissants — if you see a Tassie Walnut croissant on their menu, do not think twice. It is out of this world! 

145 Collins Street, Hobart 

Summer Kitchen

Summer Kitchen 

While not in Hobart itself, we’d be remiss not to mention this little baked goods paradise, just half hour south in the Huon Valley, that so many travel specifically to visit. In a back street flanked by mountains, you’ll find an impressive array of organic woodfired breads and wholegrain baked delights. Summer Kitchen’s pies are a specialty and a big local favourite. Lock eyes with the lentil shepherd's pie or a homity, which is a comforting concoction of potato, leek and sour cream. Accompany a bowl-sized cup of brewed chai with their famous cream buns or one of the best almond croissants. It's pure baked goods paradise and one of the best bakeries just outside of Hobart. 

21 Marguerite Street, Ranelagh
