“Terrific day trip from Brisbane”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2013

Forest Hill is a good stop on a visit to Laidley and surrounds and if you can be there at lunch time Cafe 4342 in Victoria Street is a great al fresco restaurant. Menu encompasses smaller snack type dishes to full on mains. We found the daily specials to be both fresh and very flavoursome. It has a cellar licence only so sells only Golden Grove (Ballendean) wines. We had the Vermicello which was perfect with the dishes (Smoked Salmon salad and Scallop Fettucine with Basil Pesto - both delicious).

“Hearty Meal after Skydiving”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2012

We were recommended to this place by the good fellas at Ripcord Skydiving, about 10mins car ride from this establishment. The cafe is quaint, beautiful surroundings, an interesting gift shop and also a post office. It felt like home, I had the Barracappa Burger while my partner had the beef burger. the portions is perfect for lunch and the coffee was excellent as well.

So glad we were recommended here! Not too far from this place, go check out Lake Dyer!

“Like stepping into another world!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 1, 2012

Had a day out with my sister and called in for afternoon tea. What a lovely surprise to find fabulous food and a great gift shop in a little country town so close to Toowoomba.

“Delicious!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 6, 2012

We're locals and were switched onto Cafe 4342 by friends. We've visited several times now, each meal delicious and better than the last. We love the Degustation nights where you're able to sample absolutely mouthwatering food combinations over several courses, with a wine to suit each course! Service here is not what's typically offered in the Valley - it's friendly, efficient and smooth - no lackadaisical attitude from the servers here! Lovely ambience, the gift shop surroundings are a bonus, but it's the food that keeps us coming back... the penne pasta with pesto parmesan and macadamia prawns are superb. Coffee's great, the rich inviting aroma of freshly ground beans greets you as you enter, desserts hard to go by even after a 7-course dinner - try and resist anything on display in the dessert fridge! Chef Keith's combinations of flavours are original, very tasty and have you looking forward to each meal. Meal presentation is unique and shows the chefs flair for creativity. Our vegie friends love the choices given, and everyone leaves happy, even thinking that they hope what they'd seen on their partner's plate on this visit will be available next time for themselves (speaking from experience!)

Now we don't have to crave a night out in Brisbane, we can visit Cafe 4342 here in our little hideaway in the Lockyer Valley.. delicious!
