Just have to find that little bit of Tassie that reminds you of your great holiday? Promised to buy gifts for the family? Can’t buy it anywhere else but here? Then here are some places that will happily broaden your smile and take your money.
Tasmanian Honey Company, Perth
Located right on the main road as you drive into Perth, Tasmania, the Tasmanian Honey Company is a stand out honey producer, and they use gorgeous packaging too! Stop in to try them, and we bet you won’t be able to resist taking home some metal tins of their famous Leatherwood Honey.
Ingleside Bakery, Evandale
Located at 4 Russell Street in the gorgeous town of Evandale, the Ingelside Bakery is home to even more than the bread the bake on the premises. They showcase a whole of tasty treats, homemade goodies and decorative items. Drop in for a coffee and sit inside the warm cozy building or laze in the courtyard.
Tasmanian Sauce Company, Evandale
The Tasmanian Gourmet Sauce Company claims to make Tasmania’s finest sauces, jams, chutneys and mustards. There’s no argument there, but the extraordinary thing you’ll find at the premises is not just the garden tour you can do, not just the free tasting they offer, but the extra special personalised service that is above and beyond most. They’re located at 174 Leighlands Road, not far from Launceston airport.
Red Bridge Cafe and Providore, Campbell Town
The Red Bridge Cafe is located right beside the bridge at the southern end of Campbell Town on the main street. With a huge carpark behind the building, there’s plenty of space to park and enter the deceptively large building. They stock a massive range of gourmet products from around Tasmania and the world. Plus they’ve got a lovely sit down cafe area at the rear with a toasty warm fireplace during winter, a great place to sit down with your coffee and vanilla slice – yum!
Josef Chromy Winery, Relbia
Visionary and entrepreneur Jo Chromy, has done it again (he turned Hotel Charles in Launceston from a hospital into a modern hotel) with his fabulous vineyard at Relbia near the Launceston airport. The property has a cellar door, restaurant and function centre, plus they host great events like A Day on the Green. Pick up some great wines to take home on the plane with you!
Ut Si Cafe, Perth
The owners of Ut Si Cafe on the main street in Perth have a fixation on locally grown produce. So much so they started planting the vegie garden for the cafe years before it was even opened. Aside from producing yummy food, they also sell a great range of Tasmanian products, run a farmers market on Saturdays in the cafe garden as well as displaying and selling local works of art.
Plus they write an irreverant, funny and amusing blog.
