Great cheese, Great Chocholate, Great Service but bad coffee

I think any eatery must start with good coffee. They have a machine making it and its really bad. I've been there many times but will give it a miss until they get rid of that machine and make a decent coffee. There are so many good coffee growers around that they should support.

Very professional, the lovely lady at the counter explained all of the functions and features of the dairy and offered us cheese and chocolate tastings - she managed to do this without a trace of sales pressure. We bought some of the hand made chocolates and they are divine! You can view the chocolatier making the chocolates and there is... More

My 3rd visit for lunch, as always it was fabulous! Purchased some hand made chocolate and some amazing cheeses then watched the milking for the 1st time. Quite incredible, we have come a long way from sitting on 3 legged milking stools!

We went to Gallo expecting it to be good, but it was much much better than that! The staff were lovely and friendly and happy to help you choose the best chocolates to try/buy. We had a chocolate malt milkshake which was so beautiful, thick and creamy and they were very cheap for how big they were! We also bough... More

This is a really nice place to stop for lunch when travelling on the tablelands and is very close to Atherton. The staff are very friendly and very happy to allow tastings of cheese which is made on the farm. Lunch is great and the prices are quite reasonable. Last time I had the cheese platter which was really tasty,... More

We were told to drop in, as we were doing a circuit drive around the atherton tablelands. And we were not disappointed. My fiance brought chocolate coated coffee beans and i brought some very nice scrumptious chocolates. I would drive all the way back there from cairns just so i can eat some more. Great service, friendly environment.

My family and I came here for a light meal and coffee during our stay in the Tabelands, at the end of July. We had heard it had great cheese. We ordered a cheese platter to share, a burger and chips, a few hand made chocolates and coffees, and I must say that we were very disappointed. The cheese was... More

Wasn't planning on stopping here but the wife insisted. Glad she did. Great for the kids, our little one had a ball patting all the cows and chasing the chooks. Good to see the milking in progress also. Beautiful farm to have a look around. Arrived to late to see the chocolate and cheese being made which would of been... More

Our entourage comprised 4 adults and 4 children, and they coped fairly well with the order. The food was very good and they stock a great range of very good local dairy products, and gourmet chocolates. There is a good animal display and you can view the milking when in progress. There is a baby change of sorts but there... More

We discoverd this place by accident a few days ago and swung over for a look. After wondering around admiring the chocolates on display, we were invited for a cheese tasting. Our host was very helpful and took her time with us. She was knowledgeable and gave us time to sample the range which was absolutel delicious! The great thing... More
