Sunny afternoon lunch

Blue is one of my regular haunts al2ays a good meal. We love the ambiance and outlook of the cafe overlooking the Academy of Arts and the Museum. The Coffee was divine and Chai was good. We recommend highly.

We had this restaurant recommended to us went there plenty of parking, food was good with a few different selections and reasonably priced. Unfortunately has a concrete floor so very noisy and unpleasant

I've been here quite a few times for lunches with friends and family, and I will keep coming back, because it's in a nice location, the food is delicious (the proscuitto and herb croquettes, Wow!!), with good service and atmosphere. I'll agree with some others that the acoustics in here aren't ideal, but certainly not enough to put me off... More

After visiting the Museum, we wandered over to this cafe - great decor and great pizza to share - terrific service from a very friendly staff member last Saturday! Well done on all counts - even down to the terrific Art hanging on the walls.

I have eaten lunch here several times over the last 18 months. Not being in a prominent position it doesn't always spring to mind as a place to go, but I kind of like that, as it is a discovery to be made. I don't think the cafe-style atmosphere would be to everyones taste but it is what it says... More

I adored this restaurant, tucked away beside some historic tram shed's, AND a museum. Perfect. I enjoyed the crispy duck salad immensely. Highly recommend. Thanks Tassie!

This is a gorgeous little cafe not far from the city centre and close to Aurora stadium. THe food is excellent and the coffee was some of the best I had in Launceston. I would definitely recommend this cafe for breakfast/brunch/lunch. Reasonably priced as well. It's not easy to spot from the outside and you could easily walk past it... More

Had breakfast as part of family of 5. Great food and service and the chunky bacon was yummy! But.... the noise was terrible inside. Unfortunately it was too cold to go outside. Admittedly the cafe was busy but it needs some floor covering and maybe acoustic tiles on roof to absorb noise. I measured the noise at constant 80 db... More

Visited Blue for lunch on a Friday with a girlfriend and found the place almost fully booked. Despite this, we had two very attentive and helpful waiting staff. Food was lovely and arrived in good time, at the same time! Not your typical 'café food', but very gourmet. I do not think it is over priced (around $22 on average... More

Enjoyed brunch here today! I had the wood fired calzone with Heidi farm cheese and ham, fried egg, rocket and chilli jam. It all tied together beautifully. My partner thoroughly enjoyed the salmon dish. The cafe has a nice stylish yet relaxed vibe.
