This is really a case of two-for-one - during one of our recent Sherlock Holmes outings, we came upon Just 4 Gossip Cafe/Tulsi Indian Restaurant in Landsborough - and yes, the name 'Just 4 Gossip' is what drew me to the honey pot. And, of course, it was lunchtime and I was hungry again.

Positioned in a great location in Cribb Street, just across the road from the Railway Station in Landsborough, you'll find this two-for-one. For the sake of clarity (and of course, to make my article easier to write), I'll concentrate on the one we went to: Just 4 Gossip.
Just 4 Gossip is a cafe, bistro and giftware shop offering commuters the opportunity to grab their first coffee of the day as they rush off to catch the train to Brisbane. Locals love the relaxed atmosphere where they can stop off for a coffee and chat with no pressure to leave; or browse the giftware while enjoying something to eat.

I love this type of licorice-allsorts sort of outlet, where you can wander around and enjoy the giftware on display while waiting for your order:- handbags, jewellery, scented candles, cushions, throw covers, photo frames and paintings, all Australian made.
The food on offer consists of light snacks, salads and burgers. Just 4 Gossip also provide catering and are happy to oblige with orders not on their menu provided they receive advance notice - a service one would not usually find outside of a little hinterland town.

An a la carte menu is available on Friday and Saturday evenings for informal dining and with sufficient seating, they are able to host and cater functions for the most discerning of tastes. We found the service prompt, friendly and with plenty of parking behind the building, a great spot to stop off and then take some time to meander through the historical town of Landsborough.
