During my recent long weekend trip to Hobart with my mum, we stayed in Salamanca Place; a charming precinct filled with sandstone buildings which have been converted to restaurants, galleries and shops. On Saturdays, it's also home to the famous Salamanca Markets.
One place I kept walking past and just had to check out was Honey Badger, an adorable dessert cafe. A casual spot with plenty of outdoor seating and cute furnishings; it seems to be a popular place to get dessert after dinner.
It's an order and pay at the counter affair, which works well when it's busy. Service is friendly and fairly quick.
The matcha latte is more of a milky version, though it still has a strong matcha flavour. I like how all the drinks come with a mini shortbread.
Thai milk tea panna cotta
Creamy thai milk tea infused coconut panna cotta, condensed milk, coconut fudge ice cream, with toasted coconut. The panna cotta was heavenly, especially paired with the nuttiness of the peanuts and cashews.
The dessert menu at Honey Badger is extensive, with a range of smaller sweets, drinks, pancakes, and panookies (decadent pan baked cookies served with ice cream etc). Best of all, it's open for brunch so you can eat dessert for breakfast.
