This lovely Cafe/bakery was great & serve a lovely breaky. The coffee was great especially for a fussy coffee person like me. I had the eggs benedict & hubby had the full breaky which we both enjoyed.

I really hate giving bad reviews and always try to find some positives when visiting any cafe/restaurant, but other than a couple of staff members these people need to revisit why they are in business. The girl taking our order was sour faced and really did not want to be there and the older lady who I can only assume... More

Service was good. Egg and bacon roll was ok, nuttella waffles were bad, burnt edges, two different thicknesses, one about 2cm normal waffle size but the other lucky to be half a centimetre! Flavour does not go with maple syrup which it is served with. Asked for money back and received in full.

Pantry is central to much in Launceston. Very convenient location but knows it too. For me menu is safe but a bit tired. Soups are palatable but lack herbs/spices and are a bit bland, coffee so so. Staff themselves are very attentive and helpful. All in all okay but could be so much more.

I had never eaten here before so I decided to take a visiting friend for a quick & easy breakfast as I have had coffees which are great. We were both disappointed with the egg & bacon roll with sweet chilli jam sauce for just under $9. There was lucky to be 2 slices of bacon on the roll as... More

This place has been around for years and is always clean. Range of options very good, but prices are high. Perhaps not enough competition at that end of town? Coffee very good and also sandwiches for catering very good.

Called in around 10.45 on Monday with a friend for brunch/breakfast, selected a drink and stood at cash register hoping to catch the eye of at least "one" of the five staff buzzing around with their backs to the audience to order a coffee and some food! Stood there for what seemed an eternity, called out to a staff member... More
