Mmmm Coffee….at Off Centre

Off Centre is a newly opened coffee shop in the Kingsway, Launceston. Just right around the corner from the cinema, which is fantastic because Off Centre is one of the few coffee shops that is open evenings.

It opens early mornings 7:30AM – 2:00PM, and then later from 7:00PM – 10:00PM

The other stand out feature is their weekly TUNESDAY (Tuesday evenings) which entails live music, coffee and cake. I am yet to experience a Tunesday as my kids need to go to bed, but one day I might get there.

I love the feeling of this coffee shop, the retro styling, and friendly staff. Of course the coffee is great, and if you frequent often you can stamp your own card along the wall of names.  Definitely on the list of must visit, if you are in town.

Mmmmm…Coffee at Rhubarb

A while ago now my favourite coffee shop Nanna’s closed down. It was a sad day, and I bought a few retro goodies from the store before it closed it’s doors.

So since that happened, I have been on the hunt for a replacement. I have tried quite a few coffee shops in and around Launceston and thought I would share a few of my favourites on the blog, plus what better thing to do than go for a coffee when all the kids are at school?

Rhubarb is fairly new to the coffee business, it was firstly a gift shop run by a lovely lady called Ruth. It is the most amazing gift shop with every nook and cranny filled with something different!  Rhubarb is situated in Riverside, a suburb of Launceston.  The small store expanded into the building next door which made way for more amazing gifts, and COFFEE!!!

What I love is the special little vintage treasures tucked in between all the new things, and the coffee was delicious.

I will definitely be visiting again.

Hagley Farm Open Day

A couple of weekends ago Hagley Farm had an open day for visitors.  Anyone who has grown up in Tasmania has usually been to Hagley Farm for a school visit or school camp at one point or another.  I remember going in Grade 3 for a camp, and making candles and churning butter.

I thought it would be great to take the kids and also because I wanted a look again too.  This year marks 150 years Hagley Farm has been operating, and as we walked around we heard stories from older members of the community telling us their experiences as children at the school, it was certainly interesting.
