This has to have the best pancakes in Launceston. My son could not have been happier. Coffee was great, the service was great. Could not have asked for more.

We stayed at the Auldington hotel and the manager told us try Cucina for breakfast (just half a block away). Well we did and every morning after that while staying in Launceston. Great egg dishes, etc. Good prices

Amazing and big meals. Friendly service and staff. Always quite busy so it can be hard to get a table. Wide range of food on the menu with gluten free and vegan options.

The service was efficient and friendly and the coffee good. The scrambled egg tasted mass-produced though the add-ons were fresh and tasty.
