Toowoomba cafe offers comprehensive menu & coffee
Breakfast is undoubtedly the most important meal of the day, the one that kick starts your morning with energy and gets your digestive system into gear for the rest of the day. When I am away, I take the opportunity to visit a café to have a big healthy breakfast that I probably would not make the effort to do at home.
A Bowl of Nourishment Cafe in Toowoomba filled my criteria perfectly after an overnight stay in the Garden City. For those wanting to make an early start to home, hours commence at 8.00am on a Saturday and 7.00am weekdays. They are closed on Sundays. Due to COVID, hours may have changed slightly, so it is best to ring ahead if you can.
As A Bowl of Nourishment Cafe is family-owned. They specialise in meals to suit a healthy appetite with a very comprehensive breakfast menu from starters such as Raisin, Cinnamon or French Toast to Avocado or Eggs on Toast, Muesli and Yoghurt, onto the larger platted Big Breakfast, Eggs Benedict, Waffles and Pancakes. If you are a picky eater or have dietary needs like gluten-free, dairy-free, vegetarian or vegan, then meals are catered for you too, along with an abundance choice for kids. In fact, the whole menu will have you coming back for meal after meal.
A Bowl of Nourishment Cafe is open for breakfast and lunch and provides dine-in and takeaway. If dining in, you will need to sanitise your hands and fill in the COVID app on arrival. The cafe is quite large with tables and chairs spaced inside and outside the venue. I opted for a lovely table close to the door looking outside. The morning I visited was around the time of the Toowoomba Carnival of Flowers Festival and fresh sprigs of leaves and flowers were found in a vase on every table. It presented a very fresh feeling to the cafe.
One of the new arrivals to the menu at A Bowl of Nourishment is the introduction of Oak Milk for those with dietary concerns. Oak Milk is starting to become extremely popular in beverages now, so apart for the other varieties of milk offered - Soy, Dairy, Almond, Lactose-Free, Coconut, why not try Oak Milk next time you visit.

Another added surprise at A Bowl of Nourishment Cafe was a table of handmade items for sale. The table consisted of crocheted hand towels, bibs, crocheted washers, hair scrunchies, cushions, pot warmers and more. There are always birthdays to buy for or something to please yourself and I picked up a lovely, crocheted hand towel for my kitchen.
A Bowl of Nourishment Cafe is located at 37 Prescott Street, Toowoomba and quite close to Toowoomba's CBD and there is plenty of free parking in front of the cafe. For more information and table bookings, please telephone 07 4638 8767. Hopefully, my next visit to Toowoomba will be around lunchtime, so I can try out their lunch menu.
As I like my eggs flipped over I could ask for that and also for gluten free toast instead of normal bread, so if you wanted extra or different things added, the Cafe was happy to assist. The view outside was of people walking past and other diners but still great if you are into day-dreaming and people watching. Thanks for your comment.
