Wow we have almost been here for 2 months now, how time flies. We have learnt so much in this short amount of time and I'm sure we will continue to learn. Thank you everyone for coming and hanging out with us in our little cafe.
It has been great to learn about our suppliers and where everything comes from. I love going to the Harvest Market every Saturday to pick up fresh and local ingredients for your all the enjoy.
Dear Customers, We’re taking a short break. We will be closed from Mon 19th – Fri 23rd. We will resume trading as usual on Monday August 26th. Sorry for the inconvenience and thank you for understanding. We look forward to seeing you all again very soon! Kind regards, Isis & Damien

Yes, it's that time of year again - when those special guys in your lives turn in to Dirty Mexicans, 70s Film Stars, or Bikies - it's Movember folks!
During November each year, Movember is responsible for the sprouting of
moustaches on thousands of men’s faces in Australia and around the
world. The aim of which is to raise vital funds and awareness for men’s
health, specifically prostate cancer and male mental health.
This year Damien is yet again growing a moustache to raise funds for & awareness of men's health.
Of course, he had to shave it all off and start from scratch, so here he is on day 2 of Movember. You can support him here, and feel free to join the Milkbar team if you like!
Sven the deer can be found hanging out in the front window of late, and is also on the Milkbar team, but is only sporting a few whiskers as yet. We will keep you updated on their progress.
Hi everyone, we hope you spring is going just swell!
This week we are lucky to have Holly Leonardson (aka Pannikin) come and set up her little pop-up shop at Milkbar. Her illustration-based jewellery and accessories with
childhood references are handmade and designed in right here in Launceston. She also has some original vintage-image-filled collages and gift cards available, but I'm particularly fond of her little button sets... wouldn't they look sweet down the front of a blouse?
Holly is happiest in her colourful trinket-filled
studio, sitting at the desk creating all sorts of things with materials
crowded around her and a decent mix-tape of 1960s tunes. And a little bit of here craftiness shows through in her product range; which includes not only button sets but also quilt inspired brooches, bobbin earrings, and cute thread holders.
Why not pop in and our check out her work? Her creations will be in the workshop for the following month... perfect timing for any little holiday gifts.
Mako has her beautiful sketches, featuring Launceston cafes, on display
at Milkbar at the moment. Come and check them out, they are super cute!
She will also hold an informal portraits session here on Thursday 20th
Sept, from 2 - 4pm. Bring your family and or friends along to have a
small portrait sketch done for just $25. x
Hi all, just letting you know
we will no longer open on Saturdays. A big thanks to everyone who has
made Milkbar their stompin' ground of a Saturday. 'Twas lots of fun, but
we need more time to recover from
our busy weekdays.
If you're looking for a Ritual coffee made on Elgaar milk, I highly recommend you head down to Harvest Market (www.harvestmarket.org.au).
We'll probably see you there!!
x Isis + Damien
ps. we will still be holding workshops on Saturdays, but the cafe won't be open.
