Coffee, Cake and History
Laidley is a quaint town just over an hour's drive from Brisbane not far from the Warrego Highway. It was first explored in 1829 by Allan Cunningham, and has been a mostly agricultural region. There are still a number of beautiful older buildings around town, and in the main street.

Das Neumann Haus


Das Neumann Haus was built in 1893, by Hermann Neumann, from Germany. He had a large business nearby. The house has been restored, and is now a museum, showcasing the way folk lived in the 1930's. It is lovingly cared for by volunteers, and also houses Annie's Place Coffee Shoppe, offering cakes and slices, Devonshire teas and coffee. There are two spots to sit and enjoy the far, a couple of small tables inside the building, but much more space at the rear of the building on a deck, which also has a ramp making it easier for wheel chairs or walkers.



There's much to see in the house, and some good older items to show the younger generation who no doubt will be fascinated by some of them.



The volunteer staff were friendly, my coffee was hot and tasted wonderful, and I enjoyed the Lemon Meringue Pie. It was hard to decide what to eat – as there were quite a few cakes/tarts to choose from! I was more than happy with my choice an didn't leave a crumb!
