Dine Darling Downs’


5 great choices for eating out with kids

1. Vapianos Toowoomba

A relatively new addition to the Toowoomba dining scene, Vapiano’s is a crowd pleaser with a huge variety of kid friendly meals…and with wine on tap it’s equally as adult friendly! Located right beside Grand Central Shopping Centre’s ‘Central Square’ there is plenty of outdoor seating to sit and watch the world go by.
Our Tip: Leave some room for the Panna Cotta, light, delicious and good value all around.

2. Piccolo Papa

Keeping with the Italian theme, Piccolo Papa is about as authentic as it gets! Think delicious hand-crafted pizza, local and imported wines (for the grownups), pasta and gelato PLUS this little gem even serves up mouth-watering breakfasts! Located outside of High Street Shopping Centre in Rangeville, there is plenty of parking available out the front making it easy to roll back out to the car when you’ve finished!
Our Tip: Order a selection of pizza’s and pasta’s and share away! There are so many mouthwatering combinations

3. Toowoomba Golf Club, Middle Ridge

The Toowoomba Golf Club at Middle Ridge has really stepped up its game with a new menu full of tasty share plates, cheese platters and good quality hearty meals! They do have a dedicated kids room but the deck overlooking the green is the perfect spot to relax with the family for lunch or dinner.
Our Tip: Book a table on the deck for an early dinner. Sunset time is magical here!

4. The Café at Abbie Lane, Highfields

Yummy food, great coffee and a playground for the kids…what more could you want! The Café at Abbie Lane in Highfields is the perfect location for a delicious breakfast, lunch or morning tea with an endless variety of options including plenty of kid friendly choices! The kids can run wild on the grassy outdoor area and find hours of entertainment in the gated playground!
Our Tip: Take a sneak peek inside the possum house on the back lawn and see if the resident possum is at home

5. Picnic Point Café & Restaurant

A Toowoomba icon, Picnic Point Café & Restaurant has it all, including stunning views! Whether it’s breakfast, lunch or dinner that you are wanting, you will be pleasantly satisfied by their mouth-watering menu and fantastic service!
