As the title says, the food is good and fresh. It is quite cheap ($10.50 for Nachos with beef). That said, you might have an hour or so to look at the view and chat whilst waiting for your food. The view is good and it is great watching the birds flying around. Assuming you go in eye wide open... More

I love Mt Nebo, it has such a lovely feel to it and is just a short escape drive from Brisbane. Cafe Boombana is always a great place to pit stop and have a cup of tea (make it a chai)..... Unfortunately though the cafe is not always open so make sure you check the opening hours. You are able... More

We went there for lunch on our way to mount nebo. Waited more than 40 minutes to get our meals. Top of that the waitress was very rude. We asked her for cutlery and salt. She came back with pepper and cutlery. She then turned back with sour face and said food is already salted. The food was average. Also,... More

Stopped off here for a quick bite, delicious apple pie and a very nice skinny flat white! Very friendly staff! Exactly what you need on a cold morning like today.

We were exploring the Mt Nebo area by car and were looking for somewhere to grab a light lunch. We spotted Cafe Boombana so parked up and went in and ordered. The food was good and service friendly. We sat out on the rear verandah with lovely views to the trees and small lake. We finished up with a milkshake.... More

This is a lovely and quirky spot. Lovely food - the Sweet potato fries were epic - and friendly staff. Ideal for a stop off while exploring the hills above Brisbane.

A microwave mini pie with 2 pieces of tomato, lettuce and beetroot- $13.50. Inedible. We drove up the road to Mount Glorious to buy another meal.

A lovely rustic cafe, with wonderful outlook from the veranda (if you can get a seat!). We stopped in for coffee and a snack and although initial service was very quick, we waited 40 minutes for the coffee to arrive. Only one lady doing counter, coffees, short order and waiting tables... We found a comfy corner and enjoyed the books... More

My family had a lovely breakfast here today. We have been before for coffee but today was the whole 9 yards. Particularly loved the home made baked beans in the big breakfast. Lovely ladies serving also makes for a good time on a cold and wet day.
