The best comfort food in Launceston to get you through the Autumn

1. Rose Cottage Cafe

Address: 4 Westgate St, Launceston PL15 7AB, United Kingdom

Website: Rose Cottage Cafe

One of the go-to places for our Care Professionals and clients is Rose Cottage Cafe. This cafe is great for a simple, no-fuss meal. Their lattes are excellent—just the right balance of milk and coffee. The toasted sandwiches are another hit, filled generously and toasted to a crisp. It’s a straightforward, satisfying meal that warms you up on a chilly day.

2. Westgate Street Deli

The Westgate Street Deli is another local favourite, especially for those who love a good pasty. These aren’t your average pasties; they’re filled with high-quality meats and seasoned just right. If you get there early enough, you might be lucky to grab one. The deli also offers coffee that pairs well with their food offerings. And don’t miss their market stall for some local gourmet items—it’s a nice touch.

3. Malcolm Barnecutt Bakery Launceston

Address: 5 High St, Launceston PL15 8ER, United Kingdom

Website: Malcolm Barnecutt Bakery

When we’re not in the mood for pasties or sandwiches, Malcolm Barnecutt Bakery is where we head. The Cornish splits here are a treat. Soft, buttery, and best enjoyed with clotted cream and jam, they’re a perfect snack for Autumn. They’re often the highlight of our visits, offering both comfort and a sweet indulgence.

4. Cake Away

Address: 5 Southgate St, Launceston PL15 9DX, United Kingdom

When our clients have a sweet tooth, Cake Away is the destination we have in mind. The cakes here are an absolute delight. The fudge cake, in particular, is rich and decadent without being too overwhelming—perfect for a special treat or simply to satisfy a craving. For special occasions, their bespoke sponge cakes are equally impressive and never disappoint. It’s a place where we frequently find joy in every bite.

5. Pie Stop

Address: Pennygillam Way, Pennygillam Industrial Estate, Launceston PL15 7ED, United Kingdom

If it’s a hearty breakfast you’re after, Pie Stop is where you should head. Especially popular among our early-morning visits, their full English breakfasts are second to none. Generous portions, freshly cooked, and served hot; it’s the kind of meal that sets you up for the day ahead. The cafe is pet-friendly too, making it perfect for clients who have furry friends accompanying them!

6. Proper Ansome Café

Address: Launceston PL15 9HS, United Kingdom

Nothing says comfort like a cafe that lives up to its name, and Proper Ansome Café does just that. This cafe is known locally for its reasonable prices and generous portions, particularly their bacon and sausage sandwiches. These sandwiches are stacked high with well-cooked bacon and sausage, making it a meat-lovers dream. It’s a place we frequently recommend for anyone seeking a hearty, fulfilling meal.

You will also find the ‘Proper Ansome’ team, led by Lisa and Andrew Harvey at the Launceston Golf Club. The bar, with its scenic view of the course, provides a spacious and comfortable setting to enjoy coffee, drinks, 6 draught beers & ciders, whiskey, spirits, and soft drinks. Open to the public, the venue hosts various events, including weddings, meetings, and more. They also serve a breakfast and lunch menu, and free Wi-Fi is provided to support those using the club’s facilities.

At Home Instead, companionship visits often include trips to local spots that our team and clients particularly enjoy. It’s part of how we make sure care goes beyond the essentials. We operate across Launceston, Holsworthy, Saltash, Callington, Plymouth, and Okehampton and we know the best places to go for comfort food that hits the spot.

Good food and good company are simple pleasures, and they’re a key part of wellbeing. Our Care Professionals understand this, and it’s why we include these day outs in our service. Emotional wellbeing is as important to us as physical health!

If you or a loved one could use home care that also includes the chance to get out and enjoy all the comfort food that Launceston and the surrounding areas have to offer, get in touch with us.
