Eats of Charles Street

An epicurean hub of Launnie.

About mid-way along Charles Street in Launceston's centre is a string of epicurean attractions to tempt the seasoned gastronome or casual foodie.

Each eatery offers an individual spin on produce sourced fresh from around the region.

Havilah wine bar is a place to stop for a glass of Tamar Valley vino and piece of cheese or settle in for an evening of tailored drops and dishes.

Next door is Geronimo, a luxurious space to indulge in family-style dishes and share plates.

If you enjoy Asian fusion, try the big, hugely satisfying flavours of Monsoon or Buddhai Thai - both offer takeaway, too.

Over the road from these restaurants is Prince's Square, a locally-loved green space featuring a fountain with a most fortuitous story and beds of colour.

Further south along Charles Street are brunch hot spots Mondello and Elaia cafes, as well as the Sporties pub for a parmi or Burger Got Soul for takeaways.

Coffee is never far away, either - try Prince's Square Café or Aroma's.

If you'd prefer to cook your own, stop by the Charles Street Green Grocer and Landfall butcher for backyard-fresh morsels. Supermarkets and boutique shopping such as Ecoco aren't far away, either.
