Before Franklin, there was Peppermint Bay. It’s the place where all the magic (i.e. Ben and Dave’s first joint hospitality venture) happened.

Nowadays, it’s a bistro and café with a similar ethos to Franklin: all things au naturale dictate the menu – ditto the wine list. If that doesn’t float your boat, then let someone do it for you: Peppermint Bay Cruises sails directly to the venue from Hobart’s Brooke Street Pier, daily. Find out more about Peppermint Bay here.

P.S. Cameras at the ready: she’s as pretty as a picture.
