Buzzing & delicious

We were advised to dine breakfast here and were so pleased we did. We arrived about 10.00 am and the joint was rocking and crammed packed to the rafters..tables were reserved and were turning over regularly. Fresh cooked everything including choices of breads and toast as well as freshly squeezed... read more

We visited this place for breakfast after reading the reviews. Great extensive menu and the Museli came with a reasonable sized bowl of yoghurt on the side AND milk. This is such a nice change. Great juices too.

A lovely setting opposite a beautiful park with really lovely customer service, food and sensational coffee. You are greeted with a warm smile and made to feel like a guest.

With a family of hungy teenagers getting a good breakfast is important when you're on a holiday. Cucina Simpatica is perfect for a Sunday morning big breakfast. Excellent coffee and fresh squeezed juices complete the package. It is very busy on a weekend but tables turn over quickly. We got a table for 4 straight away at 11 am on... More

Wow. What is not to like about this place? After reading the reviews from Trip Advisor we made sure we stopped in here for breakfast on our stay in Launceston. And we are so glad we did. Having said that, our visit did not start well as we found ourselves sitting on stools at a counter as all the tables... More

We were 5 adults and 2 very hard-to-please kids. It was my suggestion to have our last breakfast in Launceston at this cafe just because I... More

Great food, massive servings, the best coffee I've had in years (and I'm from Melbourne) and good prices. Served by a lovely young man who was so efficient.

I thought I would check this place out for myself after reading some of the great reviews online- as soon as I walked in the place was bustling- obviously very popular! I ordered the cucina eggs benedict with a side of hash brown and a Combo Juice... Everything was ON POINT! Cannot fault one single element in my plate! It... More
