This homely space is great for breakfast. Do not go anywhere else for eggs Benedict! The eggs Benny here is out of this world, with home-made English muffins and perfectly balanced Hollandaise. It’s really sufficient reason to visit.
The Signature crème brûlée French toast is a must try, too. If you want to enjoy a seriously delicious meal and not feel guilty, turn the page to find numerous options from the carb-conscious breakfast menu.
At the entrance you’re welcomed by a beautiful coffee grinder, which emanates the aroma of freshly ground beans. You’re in for a treat when it comes to the seriously good coffee. The juices are all home-made.
The service is phenomenal and speedy, with owners that are very involved and extremely passionate. Everybody seems well trained; the passion from the owners is contagious.
It’s a cosy spot to get your laptop out and do some work using the free WiFi. There’s a gentle vibrant energy in the room and great whiffs come from the bakery they have on site. The décor could do with more of a story, though.
The cronuts: do yourself a favour and enjoy one – or more – with your coffee. The fresh rye bread is also some of the best in town.

If you’re in the mood for a sensory experience, Junipa’s has a lot to offer. There’s an open plan bakery, coffee roastery and a deli which offers an array of baked goods and moreish takeaway items to feast the eyes on whilst dining. The aromas from the bakery and the roastery waft through the café, to wonderful effect. They offer a good selection of meals for all day dining, from wholesome breakfasts to a little something different for lunch. Try the unique toasted cheese sandwich for example, which is a duo of cheese melted between two slices of toasted brioche, and served with delicious tomato soup which you then dip your gooey cheese soldiers into. The homemade lamb pie can also be recommended, the fishcakes are healthy and delicious and burgers filling and scrumptious. The sushi menu is limited but the quality is excellent and well worth trying. The deli offers take home meals, pastries, cakes and an array of other sweet treats and goodies. The croissants are not the real McCoy and taste a little “bready” but they are still good – especially once filled with delicious goodies. Portions are extremely generous, so arrive hungry.
There’s a good selection of local wines on the wine list, as well as cocktails, mocktails, beers and the usual soft drinks. Excellent tea and coffee offering as one would expect. Handily, every single menu item is paired with a wine. What a fabulous idea – it really takes the fuss out of trying to choose something to drink and may also encourage you to try something new.
Brilliant. The hostess and service staff are attentive and on the ball. Staff members know the menu well; for an all day café they certainly have top-notch service.
They’ve got a very easy going, café style feel with an outdoor and indoor area which allows the diner the opportunity to select where they would like to sit and what sort of experience they would like to have. In the evening the ambience is a little more serious.
Grab some coffee beans at the roastery, or a great cup of coffee, before you go.
Junipa’s in Bryanston’s Hobart centre is always buzzing with activity and alive with the smell of baking bread, which draws you into the restaurant. The open-plan setup allows you to observe the busy bakery.
The extensive menu casts a wide net for a range of appetites, ranging from light meals to bistro-style dishes, savoury tarts, pizza and sushi to a kids' menu. Their gourmet sandwiches are made to order, with freshly baked artisanal bread topped with gourmet fillings like slow-roasted lamb shank, and raisin and date compote. Do try their toasted cheese, which is a toasted brioche with three cheeses, drizzled with truffle oil and topped with a delicious tomato compote. Their sushi selection is small but delicious.
Junipa’s serves a lovely selection of South African wine varietals, with a premium bottle of red selling for R280 and a bottle of brut for R320. Each and every meal comes with a wine pairing suggestion, even the sandwiches and pizzas.
The service is warm, friendly and knowledgeable. If you get stuck or overwhelmed by the menu, ask the servers for a recommendation, they're mostly spot-on.
The ambience is warm and cosy without being stuffy. The open-plan design allows you to observe the bakery, which forms the heart of this restaurant. It’s a great place for a quick lunch, or sushi and cocktail night with the girls, or to grab a pizza to go.
Do try their freshly roasted coffee and iced coffees – they’re famous for making the best coffee around.
Drove past it always and won't again. Love the ambience and decor. It was not too busy and our service was great. Starter portion of the duck liver pate and beetroot was generous and just a perfect start to our fish evening. Will be back. Wines are well priced, thank you guys!
The food was good but service was shocking. Staff need to be trained properly.
Lovely spot - great food, wifi, amazing bakery and freshly roasted coffee. Also great for kiddies - they give the kiddies cupcakes to ice and decorate, and the kids can make their own pizzas at a kiddie counter.
Stunning place for an al fresco breakfast on a Sunday. The food was good and the service was fairly quick.
