We intended to have coffee and some light breakfast. We managed to order the coffees ok but were told that we couldn't order food yet as there were other people who may order food before us, why take our coffee order then!!! They need to teach their staff that vegan and gluten free are not the same!!

Really busy on a Sunday morning. Good idea to book if a few people. Great tasting food. Breakfast was roughly $20. Lots of delicious options on the menu. Staff were friendly. The coffee was gross, I didn't drink it. Would still go back for the breakfast.

After a long week this was where we ended up for breakfast over the weekend. Absolutely scrumptious breakfast and two coffees later I was ready for the weekend. Amazing service and delightful experience all round.

Whatever you do eventually decide on, will never ever dissapoint, everything is always done to perfection!. The fact that it is often hard to get a table speaks volumes in itself. I could never...

What a find this cafe was! We were staying just up the road at the Auldington Hotel and it was a two minute walk down the road. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The menu has almost too many choices, very difficult to decide what to eat. The first morning we decided on eggs benedict with mushrooms and... More

This has to have the best pancakes in Launceston. My son could not have been happier. Coffee was great, the service was great. Could not have asked for more.

We stayed at the Auldington hotel and the manager told us try Cucina for breakfast (just half a block away). Well we did and every morning after that while staying in Launceston. Great egg dishes, etc. Good prices

Amazing and big meals. Friendly service and staff. Always quite busy so it can be hard to get a table. Wide range of food on the menu with gluten free and vegan options.

We stayed nearby and had breakfast here both days. The only criticism was that they were not open on the public holiday so we had to go elsewhere. My partner had the house eggs bene both days he enjoyed it so much. Good touch being able to choose what type of bread you want as toast. Service was prompt and... More
