“Worth a visit”
Reviewed 20 February 2014 via mobile

Good menu. Wide variety. It's licensed which is always nice. The setting is nice, we always sit outside.
We only go for breakfast usually on a Sunday morning, and find it always enjoyable. But.... It is a little expensive.
While the prices can be a bit much, I like to reason with myself and think "where else in town offers this menu with this view?"
We can walk to the cafe from our house then walk around the zoo (gold coin donation entry, so a cheap morning when combined overall).
Sure mcdonalds is cheaper. But it's gross.

“Great cafe in Ipswich”
Reviewed 8 February 2014

This place is great - my friend and I went for coffee and ended up staying for brunch as the menu was quite tempting! Good kids menu as well and nice setting.

“Poor service”
Reviewed 19 January 2014

Arrived for a birthday breakfast with a booking for 8 people for 8.30am. The whole experience was badly let down by the poor service. We waited 10 minutes in a queue to order. One meal arrived 20 minutes before all the others, requests not to include things (mushrooms) were forgotten/ ignored, or side orders were forgotten altogether. Requested drinks had to be chased up. Coffee was so weak as to be almost undrinkable. All a bit disappointing really.

“Good option”
Reviewed 10 November 2013 via mobile

You can go to a few places and get a cheaper breakfast, but the variety isn't there. This place has an extensive menu, yes it's a bit pricey for a few things but you pay for the atmosphere to a degree. The park is free. The zoo is free. So if you're there for a day it's overall good value. Good food. Great thick shakes. Will always return.

“Lovely day out”
Reviewed 29 July 2013

We have visited twice recently and the second time was much faster due, we think, to the lower numbers. The first time service was slower as the place was packed. With the australian animal area so close it is ideally placed with easy parking. We will go back
