You will be spoilt for choice if you venture outside your hotel and explore some of the breakfast options Toowoomba has to offer.  We’ve done the hard work of whittling the list down for you.  If you find a place for the ultimate breakfast experience, be sure to share it via Twitter – don’t keep the best spots for yourself!  Each location has a Google Map embedded in the address.

15 Railway Street
7:00am – 3:30pm

Ortem is situated in an old ball bearing factory and has a cool, industrial vibe. Delicious food and drinks are served indoors and out, with street-side seating overlooking the heritage-listed railway station. Breakfast items include smashed avo, croissant French toast and the brekky bagel made with a Bagel Boys bagel, bacon, soft scrambled egg, guacamole and béarnaise sauce.

Park House Café
92 Margaret Street

Park House Café is a staple on the Toowoomba dining scene and has the enviable location of being directly opposite Queens Park. All produce is sourced fresh from local farms on the Darling Downs and in the Lockyer Valley. Breakfast is available all day and includes sweet coconut bread with honeycomb butter, waffles with maple syrup and ice cream and spinach and feta hotcakes. Or, if you’re feeling especially hungry, the Park House Breakfast is one of the biggest in town.

The Finch
Shop 2, 469-473 Ruthven St

The Finch provides real food on the fly and are known for their Bahn Mi rolls. Breakfast is served all day with the early bird deal of a ham and cheese croissant with regular coffee a favourite for $10 (available until 9:00am daily). Gluten free and vegetarian options are available, such as roasted Goombungee mushrooms with garlic, thyme, feta and a poached egg on sourdough and 100g Angus beef fillet with bacon, hash brown, pork sausage and poached eggs with house tomato and onion relish. For something different, try the shakshuka – a Moroccan spice infused baked egg.

There you have it; your guide to breakfast in Toowoomba.  Many of you though will be asking ‘what about coffee?‘, and we’ll address that in the very next post, so stay tuned to stay caffeinated.
