One of our favourite lunch spots to take visitors from interstate or overseas is Peppermint Bay. We go for a drive to Cygnet for coffee or a look at the shops, perhaps stop at Pagan Cider or Hartzview Vineyard then head over the hills to pretty Woodbridge and Peppermint Bay. In nice weather, you can sit outside at the wooden bench tables under shade sails, looking out across the lawns and the bay towards Bruny Island, watching the ferry cross. The menu has something to suit any appetite. When we visited a few weeks ago, I had a very tasty trout pie, David had a pork burger and our visitor had flatbread with a white bean dip. They serve a nice range of local ciders, wines and soft drinks. Or if you are visiting Hobart, you can go there on a cruise, which must be nice way to arrive too.
