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
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.
57 Hampden Road, Battery Point
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
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
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.
