Lovely staff, without a doubt, however seemed to be a bit low on staff for a busy Saturday night. Drinks were unfortunately not the best, as they were a bit tasteless and the party pizza did not impress. Overpriced and underrated unfortunately, but very dedicated...More

Bright lights and udder-shaped ceiling light decorations lured us in to this dessert only venue. Then there are the numerous delicious desserts to chose from and the ones we had were fresh and tasty. There is a pretty decent drinks menu with their own cocktail...More

Whenever I’m dining at Southbank, this always ends up being the dessert place my friends & I go to after! Be prepared to have to line up as it’s super busy after dinner as it’s one of the only dessert places open late! Great menu...More

A nice place with great music and creative and delicious desserts and drinks. If you love sweets, this is your place. You can stay inside or outside, prices are reasonable and you can create your own pizza, waffle or pancakes.

Cowch is our go-to place. No other dessert place in the city comes close. Huge variety of options and great drinks menu. Dessert cocktails are amazing and I’ve never seen a larger variety on offer. Just wish they would serve leaf tea instead of bags!!...More

Desserts were delicious but wait times throughout the visit put us off a bit. Will order cocktails instead of coffee next time because they were a little weak.

Cowch is one of those Instagrammable dessert bar's you'd expect to find on the Terrasse des Feuillants in Paris rather than Grey Street, South Brisbane. Be that as it may, Cowch serves up a colourful concoction of cocktails, decadent waffles and seriously self-indulgent sundaes! More...More
