Yummy and in a great location

Went here this morning for breakfast. The big breaky ordered by husband was thoroughly enjoyed, and my pancakes were amazing, one of the biggest servings I've seen. I struggled to eat them. The only let down was the coffee, which husband said wasn't very good (I had tea), which is surprising as its... read more

If you want a good freshly prepared lunch in a beautiful tropical garden then this is hard to beat. The Chicken Caesar Salad is outstanding (maybe ask for extra dressing if you are super hungry) Weekends are very busy so you really need to book.

We went here recently for morning brunch and the service was amazing. The staff were very friendly and helpful and the service was spot on. Surroundings was very peaceful, even when others came to have morning tea etc. Will be going again soon!

This is a lovely cafe for catch ups and just sitting back enjoying the scenery, it's located on a lake in the gardens and just a beautiful atmosphere.

Busy morning so just a suggestion, perhaps booking before you go. Relaxing atmosphere of the gardens and the pond. Such a shame though the night before they had been vandalised the furniture and furnishings had been thrown into the pond! Would return again.

Lovely food and great service along with a very relaxing atmosphere. Have been a number of times by myself and with family / friends and always enjoyed it immensely.

My wife and I really like this spot nestled in the Botanic Gardens. Makes a nice change form the industrialised Gladstone landscape that is prevalent at most establishments. Good and cheerful meals also.

Lovely Valentine's Day breakfast with my bride. Cosy surrounding semi covered area not sides but has a roof and lovely setting amongst the Gladstone Botanical Gardens. Plenty of turtles to feed and local bird life to admire. Food was reasonably priced, a small menu, service was prompt and friendly. Tea served in fine china cup with a real loose leaf... More

Great food and location with the added advantage of dining with what seems like hundreds of Turtles. Take your Sun screen and Mozzie spray however food makes up for any small issues there.

This is a really nice cafe in a brilliant setting. If you are in Gladstone for any reason you should visit. I go there regularly.
