I have visited this cafe quite a few times with family and friends for extended lunches and have enjoyed every meal. Their high tea in particular was a fabulous experience enjoyed by three generations of my family. I especially enjoyed the glass of champagne that was an optional extra. Whether you... read more

Well positioned across the road from Queens Park this cafe offers a great opportunity for a Sunday morning brunch after a morning walk. Coffee is good and a range of breakfast offerings provide plenty of choice. With both inside and outside seating, a warm summers or cool winters day is well catered for.

Met up with friends for lunch and as usual the food, coffee, service and atmosphere were great. I love the décor .... it takes you back to another time. Definitely a favourite.

We were on the road travelling between Brisbane and Sydney and wanted to stop at a nice café for lunch. I googled and this place came up with good reviews so we tried it out. Set in an old house opposite lovely parklands - plenty of parking on the street. Greeting was prompt and friendly when we arrived and we... More

Well situated beside Toowoomba Repertory Theatre where we were going to see a production, we arrived at Valetta to see if we could grab a quick meal. Despite being fully booked for the evening, we were seated, had our orders taken and delivered by Sam with an amazing "we can do this" attitude. Food is a little on the pricey... More

At arrival, we walked through the door and waiting to be seated. The waitress waited for us to walk over to her, and then asked us where we would like to sit. She gave us no direction as to where a table of two is situated. We had to go find our own table as she walked away to go... More

I recently enjoyed a High Tea for a friend's 40th. The food was fabulous - and everything had been prepared fresh, nothing frozen, and the staff were so accomodating. Can't wait for an excuse to go back and do it again!

Each and every time I have been to this restaurant, the staff are not friendly ( copying the boss's lead at a guess) The food is only average and it has stiff competition just 50 metres up the road, so would expect better.

Cafe Valetta has a lovely outdoor area and seating on the veranda. Have had both breakfast and lunch there. The servings are generous and very tasty. The beer batter chips are the best I've had. Valettas is a great cafe for a quiet catch up but they close at 3pm.
