Best lunch since arriving in the Alice - if you like great juice followed by a magnificent sweet potato soup with cheesy toast, nachos and a salad with a superlative sticky date roll for afters then turn on the map app and head there immediately!
The nursery setting is quaint and charming and the green tea with toasted brown rice was delicious.
Looking forward to trying the breakfast and hope whoever buys this wonderful business (it's listed for sale) carries on the same traditions!

Enjoy great coffee and great food while enjoying a stroll through the extensive nursery garden featuring a great selection of edible plant varieties. In the cafe choose from a variety of seating choices - inside with a cozy cottage feel, to outside in the sun among the lush green garden. Sure to please at affordable prices. Take a look!

A local friend took me to Watertank the weekend of the Beanie Festival in Alice. I enjoyed a fresh-squeezed juice (you choose which), a delicious salad and splurged on a piece of cheesecake. All well worth the money. The service was a bit slow but there were also a lot of customers on that particular Saturday morning. We enjoyed some of the copious outdoor seating.

I love this spot because it's a place where you could have a meeting (which some people were), a quick chat with a friend, or a lazy brunch with a loved one. I also enjoyed pursuing the garden goods and plants outside after eating.

The location is a bit difficult, but I highly recommend searching it out. Delicious, quaint, and comfortable!

Bit difficult to find, but once there really enjoyed the food & coffee. Think it depends on the cook of the day as we ordered the same meals when we went back today & it was presented completely differently! But who cares, it was yummy & the coffee excellent on both occasions. Poor fizzy drink selection for those who prefer their carbonated drinks not to have excess additives, but I drink coffee... ;)
