Went here for breakfast two days in a row. Best eggs benedict in Tassie. Slow service unfortunately and coffee could certainly be better. Lovely to sit outside.

Popped in for a coffee whilst in Launceston. Pleasantly surprised by the great service and coffee. We were able to sit outside with our dog, which was great. Would be nice if they had a bowl of water available, but not a biggie.

Had a nice breakfast here a few days ago whilst passing through. Food was good and reasonable value. Was pretty busy but that's not a bad thing.

We had the bacon eggs toast with avocado. Serving was really generous, coffee was good! We loved how breakfast is made with local fresh produce. Nothing fancy but definitely a simple yet delicious breakfast!
