This is hands down the BEST place to visit! The staff are absolutely gorgeous people, the food is divine, the service amazing. We were treated like old friends immediately, had a great time and a beautiful meal with the best atmosphere. Highly recommended Everything on...the menu is 100% "CEOLIAC SAFE" gluten free. What a relief to be able to eat out and know not only that everything on the menu is safe to eat...but so delicious too. Thank you, we'll be backMore

Customer service is excellent, they are so friendly towards children especially. The size that the portions come in for food and drinks is excellent for the amount of money that needs to be paid. The waffles are excellent, and overall this is probably the one...of the best cafes I have been to, and has the best gluten free food.More

Jason and Terri are amazing, always have the biggest smiles and are so much fun to be around! The only breakfast ace we go to, the meals are always fresh and delicious. Samuel Pepys is a credit to Launceston and a vital part of our...food heritageMore

Lovely meal for 4 of us. Exceptional service. The only downside was that at 2.30, we were too late to order coffee…didn’t realise that closing time was 2pm. Very keen to try again.

Fantastic food for breakfast. Eggs cooked well, same for bacon, not too crispy or to under done. Mushrooms were okay. Coffee was good. Orange juice was okay - plastic container from Spreyton. Stairs would put some off if you are older or infirm and the...retro crockery didn’t do it for me - other may like that. People we amazing.More

We went here for lunch in between the art gallery and museum. The meals were good but a little big. I would suggest considering sharing most of the meals between two. The service was a highlight, being not only Tasmanian “country friendly” but just very...genuine. We walked past quite a few places to go here because of the reviews, it was a very good decision.More

Early morning breaky alone, i had a delicious mug of coffee and avo smash, toast and poached eggs. The avo smash was full of flavour with lemon and pepper and corriander!! Absolutely divine!! Staff were super friendly not just to me but i watched them...interact with everyone esp the walk-ins despite being fully booked for mothers day brunches they tried to cater for everyone. Im glad i went here and would highly recommendMore
