Banjo’s Tasmanian Bakehouse Cafe

Banjo’s is a successful Bakery Café franchise with close to 40 stores across Tasmania, Victoria, New South Wales and Queensland, and still growing. Our delicious products are made by cooks who care about using the best ingredients. Our simple philosophy results in many loyal customers, many of whom make a visit to Banjo’s part of their daily routine. Our success is not just for our benefit. We have a strong community focus and are committed to giving back what we can in sponsorships and product donations to local community organisations. Banjo’s collectively gives away over two million dollars of product every year.

Banjo’s was founded in Tasmania in 1984 and has operated successfully since, growing to almost 40 stores across Australia. The idea, unique at that time, was to provide a place which offered customers the opportunity to sit down and enjoy freshly baked breads and cakes or handmade treats for breakfast, lunch or a snack with a perfectly made coffee. 

The food still is hand crafted, fresh each day and served in a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. We bake a superior loaf and our bread is still made the traditional way, preservative free, fresh, soft and delicious. From day one, customers were quick to respond to the Banjo’s experience – now, with more than 11 million customers visiting a Banjo’s store each year.

Today, Banjo’s has grown to almost 40 stores – the growth has been a natural evolution. Slow enough to ensure we stay true to ourselves and our customers, but large enough to ensure the quality systems and processes are in place to provide a unique and memorable customer experience.

What we stand for

  • Great food, made fresh each day
  • Australian ingredients wherever possible
  • Supporting the local community
  • Preservative free traditional and artisan bread
  • Our bread is baked fresh every day

A speciality cider mill that devotes 100 per cent of production to 'methode traditionelle' (Champagne style) sparkling ciders.

We are a boutique Tasmanian cider mill devoting 100 per cent of our production to the classic way to produce a sparkling (popularly known as the method traditionelle or champagne method).

Bream Creek Vineyard

Overlooking the breathtaking seascape of Marion Bay and Maria Island in South Eastern Tasmania, Bream Creek is one of the first commercial vineyards established in Tasmania.

While the modern Tasmanian wine industry is young in terms of years established, Bream Creek can be considered as one of the industry’s pioneers. Overlooking the breathtaking seascape of Marion Bay and Maria Island in South Eastern Tasmania, Bream Creek is one of the first commercial vineyards established in Tasmania. The vineyard at Bream Creek –7.5 hectares in size – was planted in the early 1970s, making it one of the earliest commercial vineyards planted in Tasmania. The Bream Creek brand was established by leading Tasmanian vigneron Fred Peacock back in 1990, at a time when there were less than 20 commercial wineries in the entire state. Over the past 25 years, wines produced by Fred from the 40 year old vineyard have been consistent award winners, helping to showcase Tasmanian wines to Australia and the rest of the world.

Anzac biscuit beer

As Tasmanians turned out in force on Anzac Day to remember the sacrifices of servicemen and women at dawn services and lunch-time parades, one beer brewer chose to honour our diggers in a more innovative way. Launceston boutique beer-maker, Morrison Brewery, created a special beer to mark this most sacred of days. A beer flavoured like…Anzac biscuits. It is described by its creator, Paul Morrison, as a malt heavy creation with notes of coconut and golden syrup: just like its biscuit namesake. This special Anzac biscuit beer was unveiled at Launceston’s Fresh Hop Beer Festival, a three-day event that inspires boutique brewers to create a showcase beer using freshly harvested hops. Taking that to heart, Paul Morrison mixed Ella Hops, recently picked at Bushy Park, with coconut, oats and golden syrup to create his biscuity brew. Don’t ever expect it to take the place of that enduring Anzac tipple – the rum toddy –but it is certainly an interesting way to raise a glass to our diggers.

Finally…recipe by popular demand

We have been inundated with requests for the recipe for Ana Pimenta’s Beef Tartare. It featured on our recent King Island video where chef Tetsuya Wakuda and Ray Martin went searching for the world’s best beef and discovered Ana and husband Tom who run a cattle property and farms tours.

Here it is, enjoy!

Ingredients for Ana’s Beef Tartare:

  • 250g flat iron steak (from oyster blade)
  • garlic
  • olive oil
  • King Island blue cheese (just a little)
  • mayo (Ana makes her own - 1 egg, extra virgin olive oil, 1tsp sugar, pinch of salt and pepper and white balsamic vinegar)
  • lemon
  • 4 cos lettuce
  • 4 quail eggs

Method:

Blue mayo: Mix mayo and blue cheese (at room temperature) to a paste consistency. 

Beef: Firstly, roast some whole garlic covered in olive oil in the oven until soft and slightly brown. Once roasted, peel garlic and keep along with the olive oil for later (these will be used to season the meat). Beef should be from your butcher and very fresh. One hour before serving cut the beef into very small cubes of about 0.5cm only (it helps if meat is very cold). To season the beef gently mix the olive oil and roasted garlic, salt and pepper and a splash of lemon juice.

Quail eggs: In gently boiling water cook the eggs for 2 min (time it) then put them straight in icy water. Peel them very carefully (the yolk will be runny).

Assembly: On top of the lettuce put a tsp of blue mayo, add beef on top of the mayo, then open quail egg.                                                                                                                                                                   
As with any recipe, taste at every step to see if it needs more salt, pepper or any other ingredients.                   
Enjoy with a glass of Tasmanian Pinot.                                                                                                                  

Footnote: Congratulations to Ana who was selected as one of three Tasmanian finalists in the prestigious AgriFutures Rural Women’s Award.
