“Garden Breakfast”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2014

It was the garden weekend festival and we needed breakfast. Very busy, friendly but staff rushed off their feet. Food was good and just what we needed, basic and wholesome, if a little on the slow side coming. The place just seemed to be trying too hard to be something more than it was. Way better than McDonalds, but no Buckingham Palace.

From reading this review, we presume this is written on a past experience some 6+ months ago during the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers Event? We are glad to read that you enjoyed the breakfast you ordered from our menu and that if was wholesome and good quality. I note that you were concerned about the food service being a little "slow" - you may be interested to know that all meals are cooked fresh at the Angel Cafe from fresh ingredients by our Chef's, so you will understand that during busy periods at the restaurant, meals are not able to be delivered within minutes of ordering as you may be used to at a fast-food chain. We hope that you enjoyed visiting Toowoomba for the Carnival of Flowers Festival and that you will come again in the future.

Thank you for dining at the Angel Cafe during our popular 4 Courses for $40 Menu on a Wednesday Night at the Angel Cafe. We are pleased to read that you found the service good and the food "wonderful", but are a little dismayed by the low rating given based based solely on your opinions about other diners within the restaurant. The Angel Cafe welcomes people and families of all ages to dine in our restaurant. Should you have mentioned to our friendly staff, your irritation being seated near a family on the night you dined, we would have been more than happy to have moved your dinner setting to another area to ensure that you were comfortable. Perhaps if you dine again with us, you should make your requests known to staff and ask for a table away from other diners or in our outdoor alfresco dining area.

“Over priced coffee house with Illusions of grandeur”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

I wouldn't go there twice. The food is OK but overpriced. Don't go for cooked vegetables because you'll get artistically shaped parings, in quantity way below your daily needs. The salads are mainly rocket and olive oil with a suspicion of other colours.. OK for a business lunch or morning tea.. Coffee is good, but don't expect anybody to come near you for a refill. Colombian Coffee is stored in hessian bags near the entrance, where a guy in shorts creates artistic blends for take-away sales. A coffee house with appropriate meals would be the way to go. A coffee house restaurant is neither one nor the other.

Thank you for recommending the Angel Cafe for a business lunch or morning tea. I note that you were surprised about the price of your meal and we are sorry to hear this. The Angel Cafe's Menu is located outside the restaurant on the entrance, on all of the dining tables and at the order area and it is contains full details about our pricing and inclusions in your meal. The Angel prides itself on roasting it's own coffee beans within the restaurant and can offer a wide range of flavours and a unique experience for coffee lovers visiting our restaurant. You may be interested in our weekly specials and 10% discount dining card should you dine again.
