Good range of menu choices. Sometimes hard to catch the eye of staff as they flit from here to there. Always has customers reading a book! It is a casual comfortable unposh space to sit and relax. Food is not cheap but always fresh and good quality.

I have been twice, food not bad on a good day, service is ok on a great day. coffee good but expensive certainly get better for less elsewhere. Can get as good vegetarian elsewhere for much less, atmosphere ok if you like the cashed up hippy vibe, the renovations will probably wreck what genuine atmosphere it has.

We searched this restaurant out after perusing breakfast choices on TA for our first morning in Tassie, and were not disappointed. Despite it being a Saturday there were very few people there, perhaps due to the renovations they had going on in the front section, which also confused identification just a little. The young staff were perky & pleasant and... More

I was here twice on my visit to Launceston and the food was really great. I had the Pizza and a salad and enjoined both (the Pizza was probably my favorite). The service is not the best I've encountered but it was ok.

I had coffee and brunch off the menu at Fresh this morning, the staff were friendly and quick to take care of me when I walked in. My coffee came minutes after I ordered it. The coffee was strong and the perfect temperature, with the right amount of bitterness to it. I also ordered the brushcetta, but the orders got... More

Went for breakfast a few weeks ago, have been before and its been great, new owners since then I think. Service was slow, was not busy, was about to get up to go order then a member of staff saw me and told me it was table service, they were in the process of changing their menu so my initially...

You don't have to be vegetarian or vegan to eat here. If you are health conscious there are some great options. I enjoyed the corn fritters with feta schmear( rather than the aioli and tomato relish that the menu offers)- but I was offered either accompaniment when I ordered. My husband enjoyed the lentil special served with couscous. Both meals... More

My mum took me here with my BF. Mum and I are allergic to dairy and wheat. Had lots of options. I had the corn fritters. Delicious! Slightly jealous of mum's roast veg salad with quinoa due to its super portion size. BF was happy with chilli beans despite no meat. Service was friendly but slow. Cool atmosphere and vibe.... More
