11 Holmes Street‚ North Ipswich

Holmes St Café is a handy and welcoming little spot to know about if you’re visiting Ipswich or even passing by through to Toowoomba or Brisbane – it is just off the M2 Highway that links the three cities.

The coffee, on True Grit beans, is one of the factors that lures folk in, along with the friendly banter of barista Riz and a solid menu of café favourites, thanks to the recent addition of a kitchen.
An ever changing array of cakes are baked fresh for the Holmes St cabinet at owner Jolie Beckett’s other coffee spot, Elderflower Café, in nearby Tivoli.

Quirky artwork and local ceramics add to the welcoming community vibe and the hours are spot on too, especially for those early morning commutes – Holmes St Café is open week days Saturdays.
