Went here for breakfast during my visit to Hobart. Excellent service. Really tasty, freshly prepared food and a varied menu. It's clearly a favourite with the locals - always a good sign when visiting somewhere new. Prices are also very reasonable.

Always delicious food and great views from a number of the seating options in the various upstairs and street level areas. A top choice for breakfast/brunch. Friendly cheerful staff.

We went for breakfast and loved it. My choice included mushrooms which hadn't yet arrived from the supplier, no problem - they went out and bought some! This is truly above expectations. The food was great, the menu good, the service excellent. Check out the counters for delicious take away food too. If it had been open for dinner we... More

Being convenient to my accommodation, this proved to be a great choice for a delightful breakfast. The menu selection provided a varied choice and was well worth the visit. the service was excellent and breakfast prices well worth the cost. The meal was good value and was very satisfying.

We went here after receiving an inedible breakfast at Daci and Daci around the corner. Harbour Light doesn't complicate anything and serves a breakfast exactly how is should be.

We dined there tonight . I had the special risotto which was good...my wife had a pizza which she enjoyed. Service was good although they seem to be in no hurry to seat you when you arrive or to take your money when you want to pay and leave. We enjoyed it but would not rave about it.

My wife and I had breakfast here lately after reading all the positive feedback on here. Well in my opinion the service was great and the food was OK but not brilliant. The ingredients used were cheap and the chef had no idea how to cook scrambled eggs.the price was OK and in a perfect location .A few improvements and... More
