Coffee, crystals and conversation when you finally stop here
Where do I start? There is so much more to this cafe than just coffee, although they do a mean brew and have non-dairy options, including my favourite oat milk.

Meaning to Stop Café


As soon as you enter, the owners have created a chilled and welcoming vibe that surrounds you. A warning though, you may have to make some tough decisions as there were far too many pretty things I wanted to take home with me that day.

Coffee and Crystals


When you visit the Meaning to Stop Cafe, here's a hint, make sure you look up. Yes, that's right, they have displays of their fabulous items right up to the ceiling.

Make Sure To Look Up To See All The Goodies


It was a good thing I didn't have to rush. I spent my time looking at the beautiful range of bohemian clothing, homewares, gift items, incense, crystals, books, take a breath, and so much more. The owners also operate the crystal jewelry business, Magic Earth Healing. Their healing crystal bracelets are available for sale in their cafe but if you can't make it into the shop, check out their website, eBay and Shopify store.

Healing Bracelets


The owners are proud to have created a welcoming oasis for the Forest Hill community and visitors alike with indoor and outdoor seating to enjoy a coffee break with some of their light lunch and snack options. Workshops are scheduled regularly and the choice is impressive. You could try your hand at mosaics, jewelry making, macrame, tie dye, fairy house making and more. You can also book in to see their resident spiritual healer.

Outdoor Seating


If you have time, you may like to make this the first stop on your itinerary. Right next door is the Unique and Fabulous Emporium which is absolutely teeming with vintage, retro and collectible must haves. Check out my article on this treasure trove. If that's not enough, just down the road in the township of Forest Hill is a delightful street of cafes and gift emporiums and yes, I have written an article on them too. I wish I had stayed a little longer at the Meaning to Stop Cafe to order a round of morning tea treats and sit in their enchanting outside area with its cosy seating nooks. Oh well, at only 30 minutes from Ipswich and just under an hour from Brisbane, you can easily make this a regular Sunday drive destination. After all, I'd been meaning to stop for ages.

I like cafes with quirky names Sue, particularly ones with added attractions.
