“Breakfast, coffee and wonderful tea!”
Reviewed July 8, 2014

This is a place that we frequent for breakfast when staying in Launceston especially if we have an early start - it caters to all of our tastes from those who want traditional eggs and bacon through to those tempted by apple cake or a light fruit salad. They make good coffee and have consistency lacking in many places - you know what you will get. My latest discovery is that they make an excellent Earl Grey tea to go; this is something I rarely do as I resent paying anything for a tea bag with off the boil water poured over then milk added. Yesterday I simply needed tea before we headed back to Hobart - I can only drink so much coffee! I had their Jumbo Earl Grey and it was beautiful - at $5 it was far better value than the equivalent in coffee and I will do it again!

“Close to the LGH, Good coffee and cakes.”
Reviewed May 27, 2014

Although parking close by can be a problem the drinks and "cakes" selection is extensive. Being close to the LGH makes it a good spot to 'escape' from the hospital for a while.

My only difficulty has been that it usually closes its doors around 4:30pm which is often the time that I am "free", so to speak.

“Excellent Breakfast”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

Forget the breakfast at Hotel Charles nearby. This place opens at 7am and is quick and friendly...and half the price of the hotel. It is located only at the end of the Hotel drive way so not a long way to walk, and the muesli and poached eggs and coffee was excellent. Service and value and worth the walk.

“Nice cafe”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Great range of cakes and pastries. Always buzzing due to proximity to hospital but plenty of room inside and out.

An excellent selection of food & drinks and a great group of helpful ladies serving. Open for breakfast, lunch and through to late afternoon but unfortunately not for dinner.
