We enjoyed a delightful breakfast here whilst visiting Toowoomba. Service was prompt, efficient and friendly. We had the eggs Benedict with bacon - generous serving, crispy bacon and plenty of sauce! It was lovely sitting out in the fresh air overlooking the beautiful park. Highly recommend!

We celebrated a family birthday dinner at Cafe Valetta. The food was fresh and delicious and the service for our large gathering was exceptionally good. What a great night!

This cafe is more like a Restauramt than a cafe. The food is tasty and servings are a decent size. Prices are reasonable too. Staff are polite and service was good. Located opposite Queens Park makes the outlook picturesque.

Cafe Valetta, rather an eclectic food, design & colour experience, than just a lunch spot. Food was divine & service was fantastic. Did not prepare well enough, need to not have breakfast in order to accommodate the magnificent desert menu as well as the mains.

Thought we would try this out for breakfast. Usually closed. Found the first girl whom took some time to talk to us to be quite rude and appeared to have no interest in being there. We ordered coffees and my wife's latte arrived after some time and was dropped in front of me with no acknowledgment. My coffee arrived about... More

Great place for a Sunday brunch after a big night on the town! The Big Boy Burger hit the spot perfectly before we all headed back down the mountain to BrisVegas. Great ambience & good service!

I celebrated a birthday lunch here with one of my girlfriends. Atomphere and service ,food where excellent. A had the arancini which was delicious and the general consensus was all meals were of high standard. Coffee was good and there was no room for the delicious range of cakes that is available if you want some dessert.

This is a nice place to go for Sunday Breaky, Brunch or coffee. The service is a bit slow and depending on where you are seated, sometimes you don't always get the attention from staff that you require - sometimes you are tucked away in a corner of a room and you have to go looking for a staff member...

Thinking back to my Breakfast at Valetta, I can honestly not think of a single thing to fault. Coffee was hot and well made, Breakfast was, well, hot and well made, and the surroundings were elegant and yet still homely. I would happily recommend this Cafe to anyone.

We ordered the fish dishes, the barramundi special and the regular barramundi fish n chips. The waitress was very pleasant describing the specials in detail so expectations were high! We waited in anticipation enjoying the impressive colonial surroundings. The food arrived and the fish was well presented, however mine was tasteless it lacked seasoning and was far from crunchy, but... More
