Take the time for tea... & stop at the lookout

The setting was just perfect to enjoy our variety of teas and large serving of scones. Everyone was very satisfied with the food, although the serving of cream could be more generous (perhaps ask for extra) it was a bit of a shame that the tea took so long to arrive at our table. There were quite a... read more

Thank you for taking the time to post our review. We are more than happy for customers to ask for more jam & cream - we have only recently down sized our serves because of so much wastage, but there is always plenty available. More

On a week-end visit from Brisbane to see our youngest who is with the police in Townsville - he took us on a drive into the range and we came across this lovely little establishment by chance - surprised by the number of people and further surprised by the great food and service. Had an excellent lunch and one of... More

Had the scones, huge serving size and great coffee. Lemon Meringue Pie also very good. Partner had a fantastic steak sandwich-very filling. Lovely little gift shop with many original locally made gifts to suit all ages. Especially loved the little cloth reading books.

What a step back in time. Great to see the old time building turned into eating areas. You can eat inside or out. Plenty of country food to choose from. The best scones I have had since Grandma made them.

The Tearooms as known locally in Townsville is a pleasant 30 minute drive and a damn nice (ride) with a few nice corners on the range. This privately owned heritage cafe is in an old historic Inn which has been (relatively) well restored to its bush best. The cafe serves a wide variety of cooked snacks and meals to a... More

Good for breakfast, lunch or afternoon tea. A quiet spot under the trees, the climate on the range is pleasant and cooler ,mth an Townsville. Definitely worth a visit, a good place to take friends. There are quiet walks nearby and quad bike experiences if you wish. If you go when there is a function on, be prepared to wait... More

firstly it was busy when we visited, but less than half of the tables were full so i would assume that this establishment should be able to manage a much larger crowd. Anyway to sum things up we waited 40min for 2 scones and an iced coffee. the staff appeared incompetent, from the hopeless guy on the register (i has... More

Julia, looks like you visited several venues around town over the weekend with some satisfaction. Unfortunately Sunday was not the day to visit us - the Spirit and Soul Festival was a huge success for the organisers but obviously overwhelming for our heritage listed little kitchen. We will obviously looking to have additional outside food venues next year. Having said... More

I was looking forward to my first visit to the tea rooms but we waited 20 minutes to get served then about 1 hour and 40 minutes to get our food! When it finally arrived I said "We've waited over an hour and a half for this," to which the response from the woman who seemed to be in charge... More

Geoff, as discussed via email Sunday was an extraordinary day with the very successful Spirit and Soul festival stretching us way beyond our usual capacity. We were extremely disappointed with the way the day progressed and will certainly be looking at other options for next year's event. My comments were out of line and I sincerely apologise - it did...
