Located 15 minutes south of Launceston, the Josef Chromy winery and cellar door has come a long way since it first opened.
After successfully running many restaurants in Tasmania, Terry Fidler latest venture is the Brisbane Street Bistro in Launceston.
This posts is a wrap up of breakfasts I have enjoyed in the last few months.

Hello all, The Mole here, brother of Em, and proprietor and head chef of Casa De Mole. I am doing a guest review for Hold The Peas about a recent six course degustation I was fortunate enough to attend at Meadowbank Estate in Southern Tasmania.
JJ’s Bakery and Cafe is exactly what the name suggests. You can pop in and buy a loaf of bread, or wander on past the display case and take a seat and enjoy a wood-fired pizza and a glass of wine.
Me Wah is a fine dining Chinese restaurant in Launceston, Tasmania. Consistently winning awards for both food and wine, Me Wah combines “traditional Cantonese cooking techniques with Tasmania’s freshest produce, to create a fused menu of eye popping spices and unique flavours to take Tasmanian’s out of their cuisine comfort zone.”
Maldini is an Italian cafe and restaurant in Hobart’s Salamanca. J and I had our last meal in Hobart there with The Mole, iS, The Barrister and The Barrister’s Fiancee.
Salveté is one of many cafes in Hobart’s Salamanca area, being placed in the square behind all the lovely sandstone buildings. J and I had breakfast there on our second morning in Hobart.
Garagistes is a trendy restaurant in Murray street Hobart (though it bills itself as a wine bar). In fact, it is so trendy it doesn’t take bookings. If you want to dine at Gargistes, you need to get there early, or be prepared to wait. The staff will take your phone number and give you a call when they can fit you in, and in a clever marketing ploy will suggest you pop around to Sidecar, a bar owned by the same people, where you can have snacks and a beverage while you wait. Of course you don’t have to go to Sidecar, you can do whatever you please!
J and I first dined at The Source five years ago before it was called The Source. I can’t remember what it was called back then, but it was part of the cellar door experience at Moorilla winery. Today it is still part of the cellar door, and the location, building and fabulous views are still the same but there have been some other changes to this property in an outer suburb of Hobart.
Casa de Mole translates to The House of Mole, and it was here J and I spent our first night during a quick weekend trip to Hobart.
Every March long weekend, J and I, along with Miss SoCal, head down to Launceston to spend the weekend with my parents. This year, so that my mum wasn’t cooking all weekend, we decided to go out on the second night we were there.
The Banc Restaurant in Swansea bills itself as Swansea’s premier dining experience. The restaurant is situated in an old bank building and is run by husband and wife team John T Bailey (Chef) and Lee Bailey (front of house).
