3 top spots to dine Alfresco in Toowoomba

Spring has arrived and what better way to celebrate gorgeous sunny days and blooming gardens than by enjoying a delicious lunch outdoors.  Here’s 3 fabulous spots to try in Toowoomba

Kingfishers Café and Restaurant

Kingfishers Café boasts a truly impressive garden that has been well known and loved by Toowoomba locals for more than 20 years. Breakfast is popular in this beautiful setting or try something indulgent from their well-stocked sweets cabinet for morning tea.  The lunch menu will entice you with local produce a key element.  Kingfishers is licensed too so a long lunch with a sneaky beer or wine is highly recommended for grownups.

The Chocolate Cottage

You would think the sweetest thing about the Chocolate Cottage would be their hand made selection of mouth-watering chocolates and whilst these are definitely worth the trip it’s the massive expanse of lawn at the front of this charming café / restaurant that is the highlight for us.  Think English style village green with tables and chairs dotted around and some trendy little shops to browse through as well.  The food is superb! From a hearty breakfast and barista coffee to a delightful lunch with a glass of wine, the Chocolate Cottage is really popular with families where it’s all about sitting back and taking in the ambience. Try their famous waffles, simply divine, and don’t go home without some chocolates.

Monty Brewing Co

Just next door to the Chocolate Cottage you will find Monty Brewing Co a boutique brewery specialising in authentic craft beers and ciders.  Perched on the edge of the escarpment, this venue features some pretty impressive views.  The wrap around veranda is a top spot to enjoy a beer tasting session and if that gets the taste buds fired up settle in for a delicious lunch or dinner.  Monty Brewing Co is well loved by the locals and this venue often features live music on the weekends.  

They have also recently started serving breakfasts.  What a way to start the day, brekky with a view!
