Located in the converted Commonwealth Bank building a block back from Derwent Avenue, Currency Cafe is one of Lindisfarne’s favourite spots for coffee and breakfasts, brunch and lunch, and restaurant-calibre dinners. As well as seasonally changing menus of modern Australian cuisine and cafe classics, Currency Cafe also boasts a great selection of wines to accompany your meal, drawing on Tasmanian and Australian vineyards for a true local character. Pulling in guests from all over Tasmania, spaces at Hobart’s Currency Cafe are limited. To be sure of snagging a table at this hotspot, making a reservation in ahead of time is recommended.
Situated in the heart of Lindisfarne village, and decorated in a farmhouse style with wooden furnishings and white tablecloths, Currency Cafe is the place to go for a rustic dining experience in Hobart.

Make your way down to Currency Cafe in the morning for some poached eggs and feta, the big breakfast, or some pancakes topped with blueberry coulis and ice cream.
To incorporate the best of seasonal ingredients, the lunch and dinner menus at Currency Cafe both change regularly, but at the time of writing some of the delicious choices on offer included goats’ cheese truffles, Thai fish cakes and lamb and harissa Spanish meatballs in a Napoli sauce for starters, and hearty mains like herb-crusted fish of the day served with fresh Greek salad, rosemary-salted fat chips and tartare sauce, soy marinated chicken, the vegetable lasagne stack, the pizza of the day, and a chickpea curry.

Currency Cafe is a small café serving breakfast to lunch and mid afternoon tea. The day we visited was fine and sunny so we sat outdoors. We ordered fish and chips with a glass of bubbles and followed with a coffee. Everything was as expected, not outstanding and service was good. Happy to visit again.
Currency Cafe is the best. Friendly staff, great service, wonderful coffee and our meal was huge. This is our third visit and it will not be our last.
breakfast was lovely including great coffee & they catered very well to my brother who doesn't eat eggs. i would recommend Currency Cafe to everyone.
Great little place, lovely location, a tad noisy but that's only because it is so popular and always busy! Service is great as is the food. I have been there 3 times now and will be back again for sure! They do the best fat chips!
Fantastic restaurant, the service was fantastic and staff where extremely friendly and helpful. The meals themselves where extremely reasonably priced and of high quality. We couldn't have been happier with the evening and will definitely bbe returning and telling all of our friends.
Such a great location. Wonderful that we could reserve a table. Discreet helpful staff and all service very efficient and prompt. Food was very good. Probably a wee bit expensive for just two poached eggs @ $14. But will certainly return and recommend
