      Great food, amazing setting.

      Blue Cafe offers relaxed dining featuring contemporary fare smack bang in the centre of Launceston's former industrial hub, Inveresk.

      Amid the remnants of mid twentieth century manufacturing, we dish up food sourced locally that celebrates the seasons.

      Join us for a quick coffee and house-baked sweet treat or settle in for a long, lazy lunch.  There's breakfast til mid morning and occasionally dinner service.

      We're into good food and great service, and want to bring it all to you.


      Check out our menus, read more about our functions, or contact us.

      Keen to bring their own fabulous approach to dining, Kip and Claire Smith started Blue in 2008.

      The industrial structure with exposed beams, studs and concrete, is softened by streams of natural light and a leafy outdoor dining area.

      Works by emerging local artists adorn the walls and leather lounges lure you to sit and read the paper.

      We like to think we've created an approachable space to suit everyone, place a stellar menu to boot.

      Chef Kip and his team meet regularly with producers so everyone knows what came from where.

      That same knowledge is passed to our front of house who are light on their feet and happy to help with a highchair.

      Kip and Claire have seen Inveresk evolve to an educational, artistic focal point of the city, but will always stick to the ethos they started in the beginning; good food crafted simply for satisfaction.
