The bread is the best we have found outside of France and the rolls are lightly toasted and served warm - delicious. Coffee is also good as is the service and the pastries and cakes are superb.

So you crave for that perfect coffee and are sick of them chain stores you have found it! Classic European goodies made with lots of love. Really a place to return again and again as long as you manage to exercise the sweet off. Run by a very hard working couple and very dedicated staff. You will be hard pressed... More

I was really impressed with everything about this place, we brought the whole family of 5 and everyone loved what they ordered. And most importantly, the coffee was great! We will be back tomorrow!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this bakery's Bretzels! One of few places Ive been able to get these in QLD. (Giant pretzels, freshly baked). There other cakes and bakery items are all also amazing. But if you want bretzels, you need to get in before probably 9am. Open Tuesday - Saturdays only.

Thanks HamishW4 for your kind review, yes our Bretzels often sell out early as they are made fresh each morning on the premises! Thank you for your visit and we hope to see you again soon :) Regards, Swiss Cake & Coffee Shop More
