Ellie May's is a great place to lunch. The baked sweet potato and potato, with side salad were lovely. It does get busy around lunch time so getting takeaway and heading to The Square, if you can, is a good idea. Well priced.

Wow! You certainly get your money's worth here. Make sure you have an empty stomach. Potatoes & choice of salads amazing. Staff prompt and friendly with service. Would suggest this to anyone looking for somewhere to have lunch while in Launceston.

Stumbled upon this place and glad we did. The service is friendly and professional. We had the jacket potato with a choice of toppings. Beautifully cooked. Side salads are fresh and rival sumo salad. Thanks Ellie May on york.

Colin and I with two lovely friends for lunch! However I must say the following: Good points: premises immaculate, displays nicely done, salads quite nice, reasonably priced and very friendly staff! Bad Points: potatoes, supposedly cooked in their jackets were NOT so! Potatoes were scrubbed but peeled and were very hard to cut through. How they can be promoted as... More

No-one can equal Ellie May's for baked potatoes. They just have all the elements right. Three fresh salads of your choice come with the potato and they are yummy. Had tuna pasta, pesto pasta and coleslaw today, all delicious. I have had lots of baked potatoes over the years but Ellie May's are by far the best.

Thank Lesstelle B
