Huge pancakes

Looking for a late brekky so fair walk out of town to find this little gem. Happy friendly staff served up great value meals and great coffee. My wife had berry pancakes which were huge while I ate delicious smashed avocado on sourdough. Yum yum.

Having previously eaten here after really good meals & one not so good, my husband & I decided to try again. Ten out of ten for food, staff & effort. We went unannounced at 2.30pm on a Sunday afternoon. We were told the restaurant would close at 3.15pm & were we still happy to order. Yes we were, & ordered... More

Great veggie breakfast and excellent long macchiatos. We went twice during our six days in Launceston.

We sat down around 8 pm, knowing they closed about 9pm, 8 of us (two families with teenagers) we sat outside as a mild evening. Lovely British waitress, she was very friendly and attentive came and offered water first off, we didn't feel rushed or have too long a wait, just right, nice meals. Everyone satisfied.

This place is brilliant, great food, great service and very prompt. The waiting staff are very friendly and the restaurant is very clean. After travelling through Tasmania in the last week, this must be one of the very best eating places we have come across.

This cafe was very close to our accommodation and it is open long hours with hardworking wait staff. Given we weren't that hungry, we just tried their entree size squid dishes. The special with ginger lime dressing was the best but more due to the Thai-like dressing that came on the side. My partner tried the normal battered squid dish... More

The weather was mild so we were lucky to have a table by a large open window by the street. The wait service was engaging and fun to deal with, if not too knowledgeable. The food took quite a while to arrive but was very good. Our eye fillet cooked to order. We would definitely return.
