Great coffee. Funky industrial-chic setting.

Great coffee, wonderful staff. Top little well-established cafe. Never see this place empty, yet always get a table. Worth a visit.

The atmosphere was loud and had a cold unfriendly feeling, however the staff made up for this and were welcoming and pleasant throughout breakfast. The menu selections where standard cafe style and the food was to be expected. Given the hype and the pricing of this place, I was wanting some technical skill in the cooking and presentation of plating.

I grew up in Launceston but have lived on the 'mainland' for 30 years. I was recently home for a family event and 7 of us went to Blue Cafe for breakfast. Sure, it's 5 minutes from the CBD but well worth the walk/drive, etc. We were so beautifully looked after by the excellent staff and the food was superb.... More

Went with some friends for breakfast and was pleasantly surprised at Blue Cafe Bar. The service was good, coffee great and the breakfast was scrumptious, it is not your standard fare so be prepared to pay a little extra. I will return.

I previously came here (quite a while ago) and wasn't overly happy-however.....returning here for breakfast and for lunch I was impressed. Staff were great and attentive. Food is great portion sizes, and great flavours. I had the roast duck salad which was delicious. Everyone in our group had a great meal. Coffee was great. Good wines on the list. Parking... More

Had breakfast there recently with family members. The coffee was delicious. Prices on the higher range but for the quality & service, worth every cent. The Hollandaise sauce on the eggs not quite right but overall very impressed with this cafe.

Visit regularly for coffee & the best egg and bacon takeaway sandwiches in Launceston! Have sat in for breakfast and lunch, always a great meal. Recommend the wood fired pizza's, simple and basic with great flavors. Staff are always happy and friendly, nice place to be.

My family and I chose Blue Cafe & Bar for Mother's Day lunch and were not disappointed. The service was impeccable and attentive and our meals were served in a prompt manner, even with a full cafe. Meals were enjoyed by all, however we found the main meals to be lacking in portion sizes across the board. I had the... More

We met family here for coffee at 3:30pm, not realising they closed at 4pm.... Instead of welcoming us for the last half an hour of business, the staff were rude and sarcastic, clearly indicating they didn't want to be serving customers at that time of day. Despite the poor attitude of the staff the coffee and chai lattes were very... More

We were after a late, light lunch, and Blue fitted the bill to perfection. We shared a mouth watering thin crust wood fired pizza - Sicilian style salted and vinegared eggplant with basil, buffalo mozzarella, and roasted and smoked tomatoes ($24); and hand cut pink eye chips with aioli ($12). A glass of Avance Glaetzer Dixon pinot noir ($12) was... More
