I will be visiting back again and again. My daughter loved her milkshake served in a funky mason jar with red and white... More

This is a nice little spot for a coffee, limited on the choices for breakfast though as it appears they dont actually do "cooked breakfast". They did however have some delicious sandwiches though!

Visited the Milkbar today for the first time. Enjoyed a hot chocolate and savoury scone while enjoying the relaxing atmosphere of the cafe. Will definitely return to try some of the other tasty looking food that was on display in the food cabinet.

Neat little cafe in Launceston CBD. Very warm and homey and the selection of sweet treats in the fridge looked amazing! I had a lovely big hot chocolate and my husband and mum had coffee which they said was really good! Thank you for opening such a cute, different style cafe in Launceston!
