Driving through Childers it was time to break the journey. Wanting to avoid a chain restaurant, we opted for The Drunk Bean cafe. Quirky interior with very friendly service. Enjoyed both my coffee and quiche - only minor gripe was I thought that the side...More

Went here based in reviews, hadn't expected it to be adjoining a supermarket. Coffee was good, food was ok - normal coffee shop, got our food order wrong so quite a bit of waiting for a couple of sandwiches.

We stopped for lunch, but they had no food (apart from gingerbread people) and the coffees we bought were burnt.

Nice cafe has lots of different gifts to choose from especially the unusual plants and a nice setting to have a coffee or brunch, will certainly be coming back again next time we are up here.

Always stop here when passing through Childers. Coffee is always outstanding and always some nice home made treats to go with it.

This is now our 4th visit on our regular travels up and down the highway and by far the worst. Ordered breakfast and coffee/tea on what was a quiet morning and then waited 25 minutes for our meals. Not an overly long wait for meals...More
