This is the first of my ravings about the incredible cafes, restaurants, providores and cellar doors that stock Henry’s Ginger Beer. We choose our stockists carefully and we’re honoured to be associated with their businesses. They’re doing amazing things and they’re doing Tassie proud.

One of the most enjoyable parts of our business is that we’re often on the road to an event or doing deliveries and it’s always a treat to grab something delicious from one of our stockists. Recently we pulled into Longford on our way down to Hobart just in time for a late breakfast at Hubert & Dan. Housed stylishly in a quirky old chemist shop, the owners have retained much of the original chemist shop shelving and features.

The fabulous old world charm of the cafe was perfectly matched by a fabulous contemporary style breakfast. The Brewer had avocado on toasted brioche with chorizo and fried egg and I enjoyed a gluten free bacon and eggs. Henry downed a hot chocolate and croissant with great gusto. Coffees were excellent and the staff were super friendly. Great little spot.

The lunch menu looked equally as tempting so hopefully we’ll be travelling through beautiful Longford a bit later in the day next time.

Hubert & Dan open Tuesday – Friday for breakfast and lunch, plus Thursday nights for dinner.
