What is the point of a road trip without coffee and cake?
Where is a good place to stop for coffee and cake when you are on a road trip through the Lockyer Valley?

Easy! The Floating Cafe at 2 Harris Street, Grantham has a varied menu of home-cooked treats to entice your tastebuds, a hot coffee for a cold day, as well as a story to tell.

Why the strange name? It's a cheeky poke at the 2011 floods that swept through Grantham. The cafe was actually torn from its foundations and came to rest alongside a nearby Jacaranda tree. It was only able to reopen for business after extensive refurbishment and restumping.

You'll also find a range of local produce available for purchase. Take my tip and don't go home without a jar of bush honey - it's delicious!

Hours of business are as follows:
Saturday 7:30am–3pm
Sunday 7:30am–3pm
Monday 7am–3pm
Tuesday Closed
Wednesday 7am–3pm
Thursday 7am–3pm
Friday 7am-3pm

Isn't it amazing the number of little gems you find when you take a road trip to escape the city!

We are going to have so many places to write about now that businesses are opening up again. And also so many drives to take. Love this article. Susan
