Trophy Room – Great food and service
Trophy Room in North Hobart has burst onto the scene and been busy from Day 1! The owners, Rose and James have a winning formula with interesting breakfast options, very good pastries, excellent bread and a variety of lunch options.
They also do good coffee, with the roasted beans sourced from Villino in Moonah.
We have visited here a number of times already and been delighted with the food, the service and the ambience. There is a large central shared table and then other smaller tables around the edges of the bright, sunny space looking over the domain.
Every time we have walked in here (there are no bookings here) the word that springs into our mind is “professionalism”. The cooking in the open kitchen, the service – everything about the place is carried out in a very professional way.
Let’s start with breakfast! This was our first experience here soon after they opened. We arrived and were immediately shown to a table for two. We were given the concise, sensible menu and we ordered two espresso to elevate our caffeine levels.
We ordered the Mortadella Omelette and the Porridge with Rhubarb.
Both were excellent as was the espresso. We also ordered a batch brew coffee to sip slowly – this is a great way to actually enjoy the complexity of a coffee rather than an espresso which we use for the caffeine hit.
On another occasion we arrived somewhat late for lunch on the way back into town from our warehouse where we had been dispatching wine to our customers. Once again, no problems. We were shown straight to a table and our menus arrived quickly.
This time we ordered Pumpkin and Ricotta Tortelli as one dish and a Zucchini and Ricotta Pizzetta plus a side of chips (why not!). Both were cooked beautifully and were very tasty.
We followed with the 1000 Layers pastry which was artful and very, very delicious as you can see in the photo below.
There is little doubt that Trophy Room will become a regular haunt of ours. One of the other things we should mention about this venue is a definite plus. Each time we have been there our orders have been placed on our table within a very reasonable time. There has never been a long wait as is the case in many other restaurants. Well done Trophy Room!
