Possibly the best location in town but menu really very conservative. Food okay but very slow to arrive (not ideal for a quick work lunch). Coffee just okay. Probably a good choice if you're entertaining an elderly relative who doesn't like challenging their taste buds too much. Staff are often rushed off their feet but remain friendly and very helpful.... More

Had breakfast at this little cafe on a sunny day so we sat at the tables along the street which is nice for people watching. I ordered the pancakes with a side of bacon but was disappointed to only get one rasher for the extra charge. The eggs Benedict could've also had a bit more bacon but the hollandaise sauce... More

This would be the most convenient place to find and eat at early in the morning in all of launceston, if you are limited to walking. A couple of doors up from Target you'll find 'The Pantry'. Very friendly, & helpful staff, nice interior great coffee... mediocre food for the price. All in all an average but convenient place to... More

If you are looking for a quality cafe then please avoid this place. I went in for lunch on 4 Jan 2017 (with my friends ) and the experience i had was just shocking. I ordered chicken avacado foccocia (toasted) and to my surprise it took 25 minutes to prepare my order (yeh 25minutes just to toast) . Well it's... More

A great cafe for a coffee and delicious cafe style food. Choose from ready made rolls, sandwiches etc or design your own. Yummy cakes too.Several areas set aside for seating inside or outside. Dine in or take away.

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.
