Ipswich's first and only dessert lounge
A home-made, hot chocolate sauce drizzles down the 'Death by Chocolate' signature dish. In Cafe J'adore, all of a customer's senses are satisfied. This cosy little cafe in Ipswich will transport you to a dessert heaven, seemingly out of place along the busy Brisbane Road.
Whether you choose to sit outside on the couches beneath the heaters or inside at the tables adorned with golden cutlery, you will be pleased with the view.
Even more delighted, your taste-buds will be acquainted with banana crepes drizzled with butterscotch sauce, a saucy sticky-date pudding or a high-tea inspired dessert tower.
There are plates to share or decadent muffins to take home, finding something to suit everyone, for every occasion. Each treat at this dessert lounge is house-made from scratch including the chocolate moulds, cakes and sauces.
Chef and owner of Cafe J'adore Adrian Singh told Queensland Times he loves the freedom and creativity owning his own restaurant brings and will often invent a new dish and offer it on the menu the same day or week. "The customer is given a wonderland, a treasure trove of desserts."
If the after dinner scene is too late for you, the cafe is also open during the day with an in-house barista serving coffee and hot chocolate with the cafe's unique chocolate spoons.
The cafe does offer dinner and savoury options, with the dinner menu rotating between old favourites like tender steak nachos or lamb shank burgers to new creations. However, their focus is on creating Ipswich's first and only dedicated dessert lounge.
Management requests customers to be courteous whilst attending the cafe in larger groups of 10 or more by booking a table ahead.
Prices range from affordable to more expensive for the serving sizes, but the high quality of the desserts is guaranteed.
