The restaurant had great service and were very accommodating with gluten and dairy free. We went for a stroll down to the little waterfall and the hitching post with all the locks on it.

Frozen chips, frozen kids meal, disgusting sauce, worst barramundi that I've ever had. That was our 2nd visit to this place, and for the 2nd time I was extremely disappointed 😞 If you don't want to feel sick after your meal, do not go there.

This cafe has great atmosphere inside or out. An extensive menu has something for everyone! Service was great and it seemed to be a very popular place. I'll eat here again the next time I am passing through town.

Hi Peter, We always wipe down our tables. Here is what we do, we clear away the plates from the person who was last at the table and as that means our hands are full we return to the table and wipe it down. If...More

If you are looking for a great breakfast (before 11am) or lunch in Toowoomba, this would be a great choice. The building itself is not the most attractive and was obviously designed and built for the local council but the view from the cafe restaurant...More
