Came here on the advice of a friend. I ordered the smashed avocado which was delicious. It seemed a bit small but was definitely filling. Coffee was amazing as well. Only complaint was that the bacon was very salty. Otherwise a perfect spot to have brekky (Also the only one we could find that was open on the public holiday).

Cafe was on a list of Probable places for breakfast, whilst visiting Launceston. A popular local. The standard of service, food and price match what you get. Management is also very hands on. Did not bother with list , had several breakfasts/brunches with different dishes on each occasion. Coffee, Tea is also good.

Great little cafe serving quality coffee and a great menu. Had a business breakfast here and a nice way to start the day. Prompt and friendly service.

Busy little cafe on a cafe strip, the corn fritters are a big breaky, no need for a side of beans as I found out. Plenty of staff, all happy, chatty and helpful. Recommend.

Had normal and soy coffees, both were amazing. Ordered a smoked salmon eggs benedict and the haloumi & mushrooms on toast. Eggs were cooked to perfection and the haloumi was nice and soft, stretchy and hot. Couldn't ask for a better breakfast! Cafe is pretty small but a nice atmosphere

This place was recommended to us and it didn't disappoint. Lovely granola, pear and yoghurt, whilst my partner had perfectly poached eggs. Fresh juice and coffee, what's not to like! Great service, we sat outside. Will return on our next trip

This cafe is a must for breakfast while you are in Launceston. My friend and I tried it after doing some research on where to get a great brekky and we were not disappointed. The coffee was brewed to perfection and the French toast was divine. The cafe itself is tiny and we had to wait over 30 minutes for... More

We had a nice brunch here and would return. The menu was an average brunch menu and the service and food were good. Average mid range prices for brunch - was good value.

Had a late lunch in January and both my wife and I loved it. I had bacon and eggs with their spicy baked beans and my wife had smashed advocavo and both were yummy. Sitting outside in the shade this place has a great vibe about it. Many thanks

We dropped in here for breakfast and fell in love. Great to see gluten free options. Great coffee. We had the french toast with berries and lemon curd, and the halloumi which were both great!
