Dessert now, dinner later…


We all love to indulge our sweet tooth from time to time. In fact we have occasionally gone out for lunch and started the menu in reverse with dessert. Hey, you only live once!

Recently we made a quick stop at The Chocolate Cottage in Highfields just north of Toowoomba and I’ve got to say we loved this quaint little spot! Set in a picturesque location overlooking views of the Toowoomba Range, the cafe has plenty of room for visitors to relax on the expansive lawn area out the back with shaded outdoor seating. There is warm indoor dining around a cosy fireplace for the cooler months but the green space is really the place to be.

Hankering for a sugar hit we decided to try one of their signature dishes the mouth-watering Belgium waffles. OMG this dish was massive and tasted as good as it looks (if that’s possible) Lashings of whipped cream, ice-cream and the sweetest strawberries atop the crispiest hot waffles, drizzled with Maple syrup…yes! This is the best value menu item at the Chocolate Cottage for just 14.90 a serve!

With no room to actually try anything else on the menu on this visit we were not going to leave empty handed, so we decided to stock up on some of their delicious handmade chocolates to take home. So many choices, yum!

The Chocolate Cottage serve really great meals, expect to pay a bit above standard café prices but the quality is there and you will simply love the gorgeous setting and quaint little shops to browse while you wait.
