Have dined here many times, usually for breakfast and the occasional lunch. Breakfasts are to die for the eggs and bacon are sensational. Everything is cooked fresh to order and the fresh juices and coffee are brilliant

Trying to find a decent breakie joint in Launceston is tricky so we stopped a 20something in the street who suggested Cucina. Quite a buzzing little cafe on Frederick St. Yummy fresh juices, decent coffee and a great range of breakie choices. Service is friendly.

Having read all the good reviews for this place we decided to check it out for Breakfast! We hadn't booked so was told we'd have a bit of a wait but were lucky enough to get a seat outside almost straight away. Menu is very good it was hard to choose. What we ordered was great nice and hot and... More

Always consistent and just down right scrumptious. They use Bruno Rossi coffee which is my favourite. Staff are always happy and helpful. Book a table just to be sure.

I ordered some scrambled eggs with a side of avocado, and when it came out it also inexplicably came with bacon. I explained I was a vego and could I just have the eggs and avo. I then watched as the waitress went to the kitchen, scraped off the bacon and changed plates with the chef/cook, and then brought back... More

Had breakfast there yesterday, and thoroughly enjoyed. Huge breakfast menu, and really good value for money, quick service, and coffee was excellent too. Great location - highly recommend Cucina for a quality cooked brekkie.

Recent health issues have made me look at what I eat. Most health and vego options are boring and often tasteless however not here at Cucina. Top breakfast, thanks.

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.

Thank Jess P
