Coffee and breakfast in an iconic heritage cafe in Toowomba
Last Sunday after dropping our son off to warm up for his football game in Toowomba, we had an hour to spare for breakfast and coffee to warm ourselves up. It was an early morning drive up from Brisbane and an early start to get him there by 8am. Exploring the Main Street in Toowomba we saw a delightfully unique little cafe across from Queens Park in Margaret Street.
This is where we discovered Cafe Valetta. A cafe in an renovated heritage cottage - a great little place for a breakfast on a crisp cool Toowomba morning.
A good weekend breakfast for us means good strong coffee and tasty food. And Cafe Valetta delivered on both accounts. Along with 'country friendly' staff and quick and efficient service, we were impressed with our "find".
My husband ordered bacon and eggs with slow roasted tomato, hash brown and toasted ciabatta. ($17.90).
Both breakfast dishes were very tasty and quite substantial. Cafe Valetta describes itself as a heritage icon of Toowomba and the interior decor is simple and cosy. With wooden floorboards, chandeliers and stained glass windows, you could imagine what a grand old home it must have been.
Cafe Valetta is open daily for breakfast and lunch and dinner on Friday and Saturday nights. It has adequate indoor and outdoor seating if you care to brace the chill. The outside seating was amongst a neatly manicured garden.
Upon paying we spied the cabinet which was bursting with home made cakes, scones and biscuits, perfect for a lovely morning or afternoon tea. They also promote high tea for those who care to indulge (with enough notice)
After filling our stomachs with the lovely breakfast and hot coffee, we then had enough energy to face the cool weather to watch our son play his football. Pity the football result wasn't as good as the cafe!
