The new Hobart Grove Centre which has been revamped, opened mid April 2011.
As of May 2015 a minor "facelift" is underway involving shops moving
from the Total Forecourt to other places in the centre, mostly the
right-hand part of Block D, under Fruits and Roots. A new
patio are is being constructed for Simply Asia Restaurant. Forty
bays of overflow parking have been added, accessible via a ramp in
front of Simply Asia.
Our vibrant Bryanston Correspondent, Jill G
(the impetus behind our Hobart Grove page), writes on Thu
"I contacted Sable who forwarded information to me re the centre, which is
like a building site. I subsequently went to Wombles Restaurant (old La
Campanola). Duncan and Yvette
own the restaurant The restaurant is beautiful, Amatuli style colonial and
booked up every night. They were in Parktown North. Duncan tells me that his brother owned Red Rabbit, Nicolway
and their other restaurant in Parkmore, Thomas Maxwell still going. Thomas has
"I also went into Perron, Mexican restaurant & spoke to Thom. Also very popular, booked up and they
have taken over the il Localino, next to Junipas.
"The size of the Hobart Spar will be increased. There will be more underground
parking. TrenDIY boutique hardware have also opened, part of the Spar Group.
"Thrupps have opened in the garage store with a coffee shop.
Thanks, Jill! These changes, and others, are listed below.
Older additions (April 2011) were:
Hobart SuperSpar is the sister of Broadacres Spar, with everything one could
want for. The bakery, cheese section, cold meats and deli are an absolute
delight and there is something for everyone with personalized attention by
Vernon, Aubrey and Barry and the rest of the staff.

days a week. Andrea & Julian have always been known for their muffins &
croissants and everything baked on the premises is used in the restaurant i.e.
'artisan' loaves using a slow fermenting baking process, wood burning pizza oven with their own
coffee roaster. Linked is there lovely selection of puds and magic cakes which
can be ordered.
