Toowoomba is rapidly becoming a FOODIES heaven!  There are so many new restaurants, coffee shops and bars and wine bars – everyone is spoilt for choice. Everyone is eagerly waiting for the new $600 million extensions to be finished at the Grand Central Shopping Centre after we were tempted by the first stage opening last week. 

The many thousands of people who visited Toowoomba for the Carnival of Flowers were amazed at the size of the new shopping centre extensions and the amount and diversity of the food and drink scene. 

The Travellers Coffee House, which is part of the Laguna Serviced Apartments complex, has just started to open on Friday and Saturday evenings with a Wine, Boutique Beers and Tapas offering.  They are specializing in showcasing local wines and produce and boutique beers.  During daytime opening they serve MERLO coffee and all the food served in the cafe is cooked on site and is very popular with locals and guests alike.  Another tempting destination with the added bonus of a prize winning garden setting with a beautiful vertical garden and huge water feature.
