without a doubt, the best cafe in Launceston, if not in Australia. Tasty and delicious food, amazing and friendly staff, and exceptional coffee. The taste and presentation of the food is consistent, you can taste the love and care invested in preparing the dishes. Get to know the lovely staff, they always stop by for a chat at the table. strongly recommended.
Visited Sweetbrew on a Sunday morning for coffee only. Ordered a small latte & a large flat white. (There is not a huge difference between their small & large cups). Coffee was o.k., though tasted burnt while not being particularly hot. Place has a nice vibe, but there are better options very close by.
Expensive... I’m not sure how they can justify $5.00 for a large coffee. Ive never paid that much in Melbourne! So they’re using quality ingredients (just like the best cafe’s on the mainland do) but surely rent etc is in no way comparible. I suspect it’s just due to lack of competition. So try Bryher just a few doors down, they manage to use great Tasmanian ingredients at a more affordable price.
Coffee was on par with some of the more respectable coffee served in Melbourne so if that’s what you’re looking for here you can’t miss. Atmosphere felt a bit cramped and rushed and didn’t feel comfortable. The table service was courteous but quick (you’re a number not a member etc) and the front counter service left a bit to be desired. Partner copped flack for not knowing the layout of the cafe on our first visit there and then experienced some angst after the person on the counter got quite agitated and aggressive. Not worth going back based on first impressions but others will probably have better experiences on better days.
