With a couple of notable exceptions, most cafes and restaurants are located in Devonport’s main street, Victoria Rd.
Please send us any comments on your experiences of dining out in Devonport. Without necessarily publishing them, we can aggregate them and pass them back to the establishment in question.
Names with links will take you through to a review of that particular cafe. If it’s a beautiful evening, consider a picnic or takeaway on either Mt Victoria or North Head (see map under home menu on this site).
There are several takeaways in central Devonport. The views from the two mountains are 360 degrees and stunning; as a result you can sit on any side of either mountain out of the wind. Wine can be purchased at either Glengarry or New World, both in Devonport’s centre. But check if alcohol bans are in place, and take your rubbish off the mountain!
Cheltenham Beach is also a great spot for a picnic or takeaway. Located on the east side of Devonport, it’s out of the prevailing wind, so good for summer evenings. If you fancy a picnic spot that is peaceful, with open green spaces and native bush, try Cambria reserve. Accessible off Church St (see map under home section of this site) it’s relatively unknown and off the tourist trail. There’s also plenty of room for the kids to play.
