“Don't drive past!”

Off the Rails Coffee House and Gallery
Ranked #3 of 5 Coffee & Tea in Innisfail
Restaurant details
Reviewed 19 July 2014

What a wonderful little cafe. It was recommended to us otherwise we might well have driven past. It is in the small village of South Johnston and everything is freshly cooked and delicious. I had a beautful spinach and feta pie followed by a scrumptious teacake and very good locally grown coffee. There are lovely arty things for sale. The owner was very creative with other diners who wanted something gluten free-she whipped up a special meal for them happily. Super place.

What a great little cafe Off the Rails is! They serve up some of the best food in the region. In an area where everything else served is deep fried out of a packet, this place is a breath of fresh air for those of us who love fine food. At lunch they have a small blackboard menu with items prepared fresh each day and their cakes are to die for. Do yourselves a favour; take a good bottle of wine and enjoy a long lunch with these guys. You won't be disappointed!

Stopped here to meet up with local friends. Initially met with friendly staff. Particularly when we ordered several coffees and numerous cakes. However, attitude became rude when we asked if our son could eat his own small packet of food due to his allergies and there was nothing on the menu he could tolerate. Very begrudgingly staff member consented. Never, anywhere in Australia have we encountered this type of response. Coffee ok. Cake ok. Spent $65 - over priced for what it was. Worth the detour? We don't think so.

A bit out of the way coffee house, but worth the trip.
The food and coffee are excellent and the hosts very friendly.
You can also buy interesting things if you want to.
