A nice place to visit

The Chocolate Cottage itself is pleasant . The food is a bit overpriced but it is enjoyable for a treat now and then. The view outside is spectacular and the shops outside are nice to look through. I like the chocolates the best.

Visited 3 times so far. Gorgeous setting, great food, great gift store when you want to surprise your chocolate lover with something more exciting than a box of Favourites, but don't let the chocolate theme leave your lenses rose tinted. Agreed with the other reviews on the terrible service. The earliest complaint was from mid 2014, so check what traumatized... More

visited during a break in house hunting. Don't get me wrong it was nice with some good coffee and a brownie, my partner had a pot of tea and scones. Total cost $32. My brownie was $8.80. The venue is quaint and there are tables interspersed between items for sale. Nice break but much more than I would have preferred... More

My friend & I visit the Chocolate Cottage regularly as a treat because it has a very special setting looking out to the east & great shops to browse. We always have a sweet and on the last few occasions have found the selection somewhat limited & uninteresting. They seem to be catering more for gluten free patrons with flourless... More

We have visited this cafe many times over the years and though very pricey was worth a visit for the outdoor dining and veiws. On the occassion this month we went there were four of us and we were quite disappointed. We all had different meals, there were no sides just the burgers etc ordered. One of ther meals served...

A good place for a casual lunch in work gear, or all dressed up for a party. Great area for the children to play, with green grass, and a climb able tree. The views are fantastic, and plenty of small boutique type shops to look at. Service tends to fairly slow, food fairly pricey but freshly made and very edible.... More

We have eaten here as a family and often with other friends. There is a large outdoor grassed area that means there is nearly always room - even without booking. A great area for the kids to get up and wander around. The wind was a bit chilly in winter but was welcomed on our last visit. There is a... More

The perfect lunch venue at Higfields about 15 minutes drive north of Toowoomba city. The menu is not extensive but for breakfast or lunch the food is consistently good quality. The view to the east is spectacular and there are plenty of open air tables to enjoy the fresh escarpment air. The children can run around in the park like... More

honestly think people meet here for the view and convenience more than anything else. Come here every four or five months after the memory has faded of how horrible it was. Food is always average at best as well as overpriced for what you get and staff are consistently rude. A bit more competition in Highfields may see them pick... More

Went with about eight friends and one of my friends had the fish. She couldn't even get her fork to penetrate it but she doesn't like to make waves so didn't want to say anything until we convinced her to do so. The man (I believe he's the owner) was so rude to her. He gave her a free coffee... More
