It is so hot in this place why haven't all the chocolates melted. A very old fashioned shop where the assistant stands there and looks straight through you and you have to repeat yourself a dozen times.

Had to wait 2 hours for my movie so wandered the main road of North Hobart. Saw the chocolates in the window and thought "yesssss". Popped inside thinking just to buy some chokkies for dessert. Inside I was transported to a lovely interior of a classic country town milk bar. As you walk in the door your eyes are glued... More

After a lovely walk around this pretty are in North Hobart, it's hard to go past the Renown Milk Bar. The selection of chocolates in the window is attractive, my grandchildren can't go past all the lolly choices on one wall, and my husband and I often succumb to a chilli chocolate Valhalla ice cream in a waffle cone. It's... More

A few nights ago after indulging in a local restaurant, I ducked into the Renown for an ice cream for dessert. Hot chili chocolate by Valhalla company was superb. The double scoop I got was at least a dollar cheaper than you get charged in most other places. They have the hugest range of sweets imaginable. Go and see for... More

There are lots of chocolates, fudge, lollies, icecreams etc to satisfy any sweet tooth. It's an interesting setting with the old fashioned decor, chairs and even a pinball machine, kind of like like grandmas kitchen meets a milk bar. We liked our little booth and enjoyed a drink and some sweet treats.

The Renown serves milkshakes, toasted sandwiches, sweet snacks but fairly indifferent coffee in a cosy milk-bar atmosphere. Some would call it dated, but I find it quaint, and there's nowhere my daughter would rather go for an after-school treat. They also stock a range of specialty chocolates and a "bag your own" lolly selection.

Was selecting lollies from the wide range on the wall, and a staff worker shouted at me while with friends as if we were little kids, and disturbed all the customers who were in the shop. Not only did she shout once but twice in a loud and rude manner. Not an acceptable manner to express to a customer. Don't... More
