Great service, lovely coffee, warm, modern and cosy atmosphere, delicious desserts just needing a vegan option to cater for a wider variety of clientele.

UPDATED REVIEW: I have been here a number of times since my last review and Elaia certainly earned its excellent rating. I really do love Elaia's location, the fact parking nearby is so easy and the range of indoor and outdoor seating (and take-away). The food has been fantastic, with such a short wait time and decent portion sizes. Some... More

Regardless of where ever you are staying in Launceston, take a walk or take a drive to this café. The coffee is great. Breakfast was yummo … between the two of us we tried eggs benedict, classic breakfast, smashed avocado, omelette, scrambled eggs and mixed berry pancakes. Breakfast menu goes through to the early afternoon which is very convenient. The... More

Although named cafe Elaia (don't ask me how to pronounce it), this is also a licensed restaurant of an evening serving good fare not to be overlooked. Not able to secure a booking at Mud, our local friends took us here instead. We were not disappointed. Two of us had Trevally (market fish dish), which was cooked to perfection -... More

Really enjoyed the food here. Full of flavour and nice large serving. Staff were attentive and friendly and it had a really good atmosphere. The only thing I could say that wasn't up to scratch was that the food was Luke warm, which was quite disappointing

Visited this cafe / restaurant twice recently. The first time the eye fillet steak was delicious, cooked to perfection with a tasty and decent sized salad. My ricotta gnocchi, which were also delicious, had too much shredded bacon in the cream sauce and, perhaps, a smaller amount of prosciutto or similar may have been a lighter touch. The second time...

My wife and I popped in here by chance on a recent trip to Launceston. We were not disappointed. It was an interesting menu, and we chose a filet steak and stuffed chicken breast from the specials board, both cooked to perfection. The steak was tender, and melted in the mouth. The chicken was seasoned to perfection and again cooked... More
