We stopped here for lunch after a walk around the park. We had the mushroom schnitzel stuffed with gorgonzola on a walnut/watercress salad with lemon dressing and a Crispy duck and roast pumpkin salad with hazelnut and orange vinaigrette. Both meals being excellent with a tasty mix of ingredients complimenting each meal. Topped off with two iced coffees, set amongst... More

This is always a great venue for taking visitors, with fabulous views whether you're sitting indoors or out. Good coffee and a great selection from the cake cabinet. Service is always professional and courteous.

The coffee and cakes are very good but the wattle and violet ice cream 'take the cake'. Spectacular views as the restaurant sits on the top of the range. I love going to this venue.

We visited Picnic Point on 21st September 2014 for breakfast and to admire the spectacular view. We ordered 2 Eggs Benedict and 1 big breakfast, a milkshake, a bottled juice and 2 hot drinks. It was just over $80.00. We couldn't believe when our hot drinks came out in paper cups with plastic teaspoons! My partner commented on this and... More

Mother nature serves a spectacular view (and it's free) but the Picnic Point Restaurant is a hit and miss proposition in our view. Their prices are high eg. $5.50 for a paper cup of hot chocolate or $5.95 for a milkshake. We went for the appealing flavours available for the milkshakes but were terribly disappointed. If I am going to... More

As the organizer of a large 3 day conference, I could not thank Ken, Julie and the staff enough. From the planning stage, to the end of the conference, their assistance and guidance was brilliant. So many delegates described the venue as "classy, amazing, with wonderful food with excellent service, The venue ticks so many boxes. Thank you so much... More

Thought I'd go to picnic point for a nice drink and enjoy the tranquility there..... Don't know why, my usual experience at this cafe is disappointing and I really only wanted to come here for the view, so should have brought a take away from elsewhere.... Ordered a malted caramel thick shake. Cost = $7.45!!!!!! Got a milkshake. Sent it... More

Every time I visit Toowoomba I am sure visit Picnic Point. The staff are always friendly, the coffee is top notch and it is all capped off with such a brilliant view. My favourite place to have coffee (and a sneaky cake) in Toowomba!
