Stumbled across this place for breakfast and wished we hadn't. We were seated fairly quickly and then forgotten about. There is a buzzer on the table to call for service but ours didn't seem to be working so tried to get attention of waitress who just looked through us. Someone from our table ended up going up to the counter... More

Early Sunday morning breakfast before heading to airport. Both meals were very tasty and presented well; service was very good. Nice feeling about the cafe sitting on the verandah of old GPO with nice background music.

If you are ever in Toowoomba and need a decent breakfast and good Campos coffee I suggest you pop into the GPO.

Relaxing pleasant surroundings with smiling friendly prompt service. Menu choices for breakfast had some different choices as well as the normal. I had chicken and mushroom crepe, there was large peices of chicken with mushrooms in a creamy sauce on top of the light crepe very tasty. We also had smoked Pinto beans with poached egg, the beans were tender... More

We had the GPO breakfast and found that it was quite nice, well presented, delicious and good value for money. Although my partner's cup and teapot were stained with tea prior to coming to the table and the milk jug had coagulated milk on the rim. Maybe the staff should be more observant when they empty the dishwasher. The atmosphere... More

We stumbled across this place when visiting Toowoomba and I'm glad we did. Customer service was excellent, food was amazing and the tomato relish was the best I've ever tasted. I had seconds. Our food came out quick, coffee was perfect. We sat up on the verandah and overlooked the street. There was live music which was nice. I will... More

Lovely spacious venue. Street side, verandah or inside seating. Excellent prompt service, eggs Benedict and pancakes met with approval. Only negative the coffee was not to our taste, a little on the bitter, watery side for us
