Extremely pleasant setting on edge of Toowoomba Range, at Highfield's, overlooking Lockyer Valley below. Reasonably expensive, but delicious food. Mango cheesecake very tasty. Would be an excellent location for a group lunch, with nice view, and coloured parrots flying by.

The Chocolate Cottage is a beautiful place to celebrate anything girlie! Shoes, craft,quilting,home wares and art works. Took my mother in law there for her birthday. It has great tasting food, a little on the pricey side but worth it when celebrating. Great views from the Chocolate Cottage's green and relaxed atmosphere. Always love looking into the stores, next to... More

This is a lovely location great views form outside in the garden. Inside feels a little crowded - lots of people, lots of gift lines, and not a lot of space. The food was good, coffee was good, staff were friendly.

I've dined here twice and both times the food was excellent. Last time I came at the end of the day and unfortunately the kitchen was closed at 4pm so I had a savoury muffin which was exceptional. Definitely worth the visit, especially for the views and chance to explore the other little shops and art gallery next door. I... More

Visited for brunch and had the waffles. Yum! The Chocolate Cottage is set atop the escarpment above Spring Bluff, with commanding views over the surrounding area and lovely garden setting. They also sell local made chocolates and there are a number of little shops surrounding the main grass court yard. Well worth a visit.

Stopped here for afternoon tea & had banana toast with cinnamon butter & coconut toast with lime marmalade (can't think of the full name). Both absolutely delicious. My friends coffee was weak but my herbal tea was very nice. It's very touristy with prices to match. Nice to walk around the few shops in the courtyard.
