In case you missed it, a WHOLE HEAP of new eateries have opened in the city in the last year or so, contributing to an epic foodie scene here in Ipswich.

We continue to have an ever-growing list of spots to try, ranging from Asian to European to modem Australian to miscellaneous-but-awesome cuisine. Here’s a list of restaurants and cafes that have recently opened.

Heisenberg Haus

Heisenberg Haus pays homage to the German ancestry of Ipswich, serving cuisine like GIANT Schnitzel, Pretzels, Pork Knuckle and Wurst Sample! A nice array of German beer is also available.

Dancing Bean Roastery

Dancing Bean Roastery, located behind Heisenberg Haus in the Top of Town precinct, has delectable desserts and can do a mean Reuben sandwich, as well as alternating food options. The crew also roast their own coffee beans in store, sell them in bulk and host barista courses!

Thirty Seven Café

Thirty Seven Café along Brisbane Road at Bundamba opened in May and does a mean charcoal-bun chicken slider! The ever-changing menu will keep you coming back to this perfect breakfast and brunch spot.

116 Laneway Café

116 Laneway Café has opened next to Indian Mehfil in the CBD and it’s a milkshake lover’s paradise. If it’s your cheat day or if you’re just craving something decadent, the Salted Caramel Popcorn Milkshake will knock your socks off. The Scrambled Eggs and Haloumi with smashed avocado on toasted sourdough with balsamic glaze and lemon is fabulous.


Tap’d at the Prince Alfred hotel definitely rates a mention, with a whopping 72 beers and ciders on tap! Food options that complement the beer offerings range from pizza and burgers to steaks and slow cooked shared plates of Sticky Barbecue Ribs or Beef Brisket.

Casa Mia

Casa Mia Café Restaurant has everything you want in an Italian restaurant! Must-try dishes include the Scaloppine Parmigiana and Grilled Polenta Stack for the vegetarians.

Forty West

Forty West at Ripley is a new hidden gem! It has the best view of the new Splash ‘n’ Play Waterpark, making it very parent and child-friendly. This spot also has a small range of craft beer available.

Stay tuned, we hear some more amazing places are set to open to add to this list!
