We went in there early at 8am, but it was full inside so we sat outside. Service was quite slow which was quite irritating. We then ordered 2 breakfasts to share between 3, it was quite tasty. There was a lot of choices to choose from and the poached eggs were really good.

Our last morning in Tasmania and this cafe was recommended by our Hollybanks Treetop Adventure guide. We were not disappointed, food was delicious and generous portions. The eggs were cooked perfectly. Coffee and smoothies were just right. Hat off to the two young women waiting the tables and the batista, they were run off their feet. We all enjoyed our... More

Very busy place. We were fortunate to have a seat without a booking. It was outside [although the bar type seating is not very comfortable as the distance from seat the bar top is wide]. As it is busy the service is slow. The couple next to us were asked for drinks first even though we'd been sitting for 10... More

This is truly the best restaurant in Launceston for Breakfast. The serving as very large and the prices are very reasonable. It is a must try! The staff are always friendly and only too happy to accommodate your needs.

Were looking for somewhere that opened early for breakfast as we wanted to get on the road early. This little cafe ticked all the boxes. The waitress was friendly and helpful, the food was tasty, generous and reasonably priced and the highway out of town was 2 blocks down the road! An added bonus was a lovely view of the... More

We rocked up here on a busy Saturday morning without a reservation and the waitress was helpful and friendly despite the place being so busy. We sat outside in the shade- perfect on a hot morning- and ordered coffee and pancakes all round. We each had the raspberry, choc chip and Canadian pancakes. The food portions were generous, scrumptious and... More

We visited Cucina thanks to a tripadvisor review and so glad we did. I'm not a breakfast person but this was so impressive! We were lucky to get a table as a group was leaving, all of the tables were reserved, clearly a popular spot. I definitely recommend the pesto eggs, they were phenonenal. My husband had the cesar eggs... More

We breakfasted on the 3 days we stayed at the hotel. Very good service all round. Couldn't fault the food in any way. Excellent value for money.
