Beautiful

Stumbling across the Chocolate Cottage when passing through Highfields was sensational. They served up heartwarming fare for a tired road tripper, and in massive quantities. While their service was quite short, they were packed with locals so this is understandable. I had a Panini which... read more

I used to love coming here, however the prices are starting to out do the quality. $8.70 for a piece of cake???? I refuse to pay that price for a simple slice of cheesecake. It's a lovely setting with great atmosphere but not worth the price anymore. Disappointing.

Friends and I catch up here twice a year and are usually there for 3-4hrs. The staff don't mind us staying that long and are happy to serve us as long as we stay. Service is great and food is yummy. On a cold day you may need to make sure you get an inside table as it can get... More

If you are looking for a warm & cozy place for lunch near Toowoomba try this one. Good food at reasonable prices, friendly staff & nice coffee. It is a lovely setting with other attractions nearby. They make a good burger.

This charming old style cottage has a very wide menu of fabulous desserts, chocolates, cakes and afternoon/morning drinks. There is seating for around 20 inside and on the verandah in case of rainy weather, but the best part of this establishment is the outdoors area. A large grassy area (around 1/2 acre) under the trees has a number of tables... More

A lovely cosy atmosphere to get out of the hustle and bustle and experience delicious coffee and cake. I haven't had a meal but certainly the meals delivered to other tables looked beautifully presented and very appetising. A really relaxing experience with a million dollar view. The shop also features interesting and eclectic giftware and of course you can't leave... More

The backyard seating on the grass overlooking the view is very relaxing. The food was of average quality and not the freshest but passable. Coffee is OK.

This place is very nice, staff are friendly and food is very well presented. The reason for my "only 3 star review" is because the price of the food is just a bit over the top. Would go back there again.

So my nanna (whom we were visiting) in toowoomba was super excited to take us here for lunch. Whilst the view was lovely. It was a cool windy day and the only seats available were outside so we were freezing as we didn't dress to be sitting outside thinking there would be tables available indoors. It appears that these are... More

A lovely setting for coffee or lunch. Views that are never boring and a friendly welcome make this a regular stop for my coffee. And if it is cold outside, the fireplace inside Is just as welcoming.
