Shh, don't tell EVERYONE about this cosy Toowoomba cafe

There are some famous and fantastic cafes in Toowoomba, there are many mediocre ones, and there are cafes like Framed: fantastic, but known to only a few.

And unless you're paying close attention while driving to Harvey Norman or Rebel Sport, you wouldn't know that this shopping complex has a framing shop (Downs Framing Studio) hiding this excellent cafe.

Comfy leather lounges, recycled timber tables, soft lighting and large windows make this a pleasant place to linger over your coffee.

The coffees themselves are worth lingering over, made with Sunshine Coast beans from Slide Coffee Roasters. They sell take-home packs of beans to brew your own too.

Apart from coffee, the sticky chai latte is a tempting option (brewed on real tea leaves and spices).

There are also a range of other teas and a limited selection of cold drinks. The cabinet offers various sweet treats like macaroons, pastries, and banana bread.

One big plus at Framed that you can't rely on in your chain-store cafes is the authentically warm and friendly service.

If there's a downside to being a small business, and a more intimate venue, it's that with 2 staff on (when we were there), backlogs can develop.

After your respite from the real world, you can wander a few metres along to the RSPCA op shop for an eco-conscious bargain, or say hello to the kittens in-store. Or carry on shopping at the bigger stores in the complex (Spotlight, Rebel Sport, Anaconda, Amart etc.)
