Set inside Ipswich’s home of Antiques the Heritage Coffee Corner is quickly becoming a popular place to sit and relax after a day out in Ipswich.

Owner Ailsa Andersen serves up delicious home cooking as well as coffee and tea.

She used to run Richy’s coffee in Woodend and decided to take a chance on another business when she saw that there was previously a café in the centre.

With the ambiance of the heritage listed former Congregational Sunday school hall built in 1895 the café has a charming décor featuring upcycled tables and chairs that were used in Ms Andersen’s former café.

“This outstanding heritage-listed building has the perfect ambience for a coffee shop, not to mention plenty of antiques, memorabilia and retro items for sale,” she said.

They’ve got Chai and Turmeric Latte on the menu as well as hot chocolate and cater for a range of food allergies.

So far they’re known for their comforting soups and delectable sweets like lemon and lime cheese cake and vanilla slice.

They make a range of light meals from frittata to savoury muffins, mince and quiches as well as salads and sandwiches.

The café is open for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea, the same hours as the Ipswich Antique Centre from 10am to 5pm every day except Tuesday and Wednesday.
