Delicious lunch with a perfect setting on a warm sunny day

The chocolate cottage is perfect on a warm sunny day. Plenty of tables outside to sit, with umbrellas for shade if needed. The lunch menu has a little of everything, plus you a good selection of cakes, sweets and chocolates if you have room afterwards. Service was good and three of us had the best... read more

Great views, great foods. The shops are kitchy and pricey unless you like that sort of thing. Plenty of lawn for the kids to roam around. Cakes are baked fresh in premises, and the handmade chocolates are actually worth it.

Well after hearing lots of rave reviews about the chocolate cottage I took my family who were visiting from overseas. Was slightly disappointed with it on a whole.. my mum was really looking forward to visiting. .. the service was good but the place is slightly overpriced .. parking can be a problem if it's a busy day. .. to...

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.

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 contained turkey, bacon, jarlsberg and an enormous salad, and combined with the landscape the back... More

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.
