While I enjoyed this morning's breakfast of scrambled eggs, hash browns, mushrooms and bacon ... it is exactly the same as two months ago and the two months before ... can I suggest some elements change to give regulars some variety.

A beautiful stately home in the grounds of UNE. Great stop for coffee on the terrace. Lovely staff. Busy lunch shop so it can take a little time for your order to arrive, but worth the wait. Slightly odd menu, but the food is lovely....$15 buffet on a Friday is excellent value.More

The restaurant at Booloominbah has a sensible selection of reasonably priced food. The real bonus is the magnificent building and surrounds where you can enjoy well manicured gardens and friendly people.

Breakfast was very reasonably priced. A great assortment, eggs were good, mushrooms were great although could have been warmer. Coffee was perfect. The place was not busy and parking was easy. Staff were friendly. A good selection of cakes made on the premises.

Stopped by for a coffee and lunch. Beautiful old house in serene gardens. Pleasant light and airy dining room. Frindly unobtrusive waitstaff. Limited lunch menu with enough variety. We enjoyed all our meals. Gluten free, vegan options available. Battered fish 'n' chips and Sweet potato...and pecan salad.More

Usually my stop for a morning coffee, I decided I'd treat myself to some lunch. I chose to takeaway, because I had a short lunch break and thought I could chow down at my desk. The waitress was very polite and helpful, as are most...of the female staff there. The gentleman at the counter was a little prickly though, and often is in my past experience. It was a little busy and it took a little while to receive my food - about 15min. Still gave me enough time to get back to the office and eat. I'm going to be brutally honest - I expected more. I paid $19.50 for 3 chicken nuggets, some under dressed coleslaw and chips. The chicken itself was very chewy, though the seasoning was nice. The dipping sauce that came with the meal was nice with some fresh herbs in it. I really feel like I've wasted my money. I'm still hungry and my bank account is $20 lighter. Might just stick to the coffee in the future.More

Table service is fine. Food to the table is slow. The menu is odd to say the least - perhaps trying to be inventive but alls short. Food quality is not good. Really should stick with a 'parmy and chips' as that is what they...seem to serve up well.More

This historic building on the University of New England campus, used to be heading into disrepair. However it has been revamped, and it is soo good that it is being used well again. We went for lunch, and it was really well done. Service was...prompt and courteous. I had a goat cheese, tomato tart with a nicoise salad, and it was delicious. Others tried the special pot pies...today's were steak and mushroom...and they were enjoyed as well. The place was packed with students and profs...so it is a great place for all to visit and enjoy some conversation.More
