10a Merle Finimore Avenue‚ Ipswich

Set in the oldest designated public park in Queensland, Queens Park Cafe is a welcoming hub for both locals and visitors to the heritage city.

On any given day you’ll find families, couples and coffee lovers relaxing over food and drinks on the wide leafy verandas.

Owner Liz Reynolds has been here for over ten years, with daughter Kirsten helping in the business and playing an integral role in running what is one of the city’s biggest and busiest cafes.

Welcoming service, affordable prices and diverse dietary options are just some of the cafe’s important focuses.

The menu features a few crowd pleasers such as Signature Breakfast, Eggs Benedict, and Avocado Smash. The lunch menu includes classic favourites such as Chicken Parmigiana, Fisherman’s Basket and a Classic Burger.

The cabinet boasts a colourful array of cakes which has gluten-free and vegan options. Not to mention “Ipswich’s Thickest Thickshakes” and ice cream scoops in cones are red hot favourites among the weekend crowds.

The friendly vibe extends to those who arrive with their furry friends – the cafe welcomes dogs on the deck.

The cafe is just a minute’s stroll from the Ipswich Nature Centre and Nerima Gardens.
