We had a weekday breakfast but were rushing to an appointment. We informed the waitress and she very kindly sped up the coffees and meals, which were fantastic. Generous avo on toast, very garlicky garlic mushrooms, good hot almond milk coffee. Of course the venue...s a jaw-dropper if you love beautiful old Queenslander architecture. Very lovely place - wish we lived closer.More

The staff which dealt with our table were incompetent and could not write down a simple order. It is well worth the extra walk to the Park House café. We thought we would try café Valetta, I think that was our first mistake. Very disappointed...with the service and the attitude of the staff. We will never go there again unless it changes managementMore

Terrible, terrible, terrible, terrible, it is the worst cafe we have visited. Certain staff couldn't take a simple order, a bit of commonsence exercised by these members of staff would be effective to the owners in generating a better business

Thoroughly enjoyed our family lunch today at this beautiful venue. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left the experience was wonderful. We started with drinks from the bar my daughter and I enjoyed a cocktail each - we highly recommend the Pink...Gin Fizz and the Amalfi Spritz. For lunch I enjoyed the Arancini Balls, my daughter had the Risotto special of the day and my husband and son-in-law both enjoyed the Honey Mustard Chicken. To complete the meal, we all shared the Home Made Lemon Meringue Pie and the Glute Free Chocolate and Almond Cake. We noticed that there was a group of ladies enjoying high tea together, so will be back to book for that experieince. Staff were amazing. We would like to call out Will, for his excellent service and smile.More

We had lunch here our first day when visiting Toowoomba, we loved it in the front courtyard area with the fountain, geraniums in urns, grape vine covered pergola...food was tasty however it was a good 30 minute wait (for a salad, kids meal, pasta and...soup), just that bit too long and just probably a tad on the expensive for what you get side. Young man who waited on us was great.More

We had family of four (2 adults and 2 children) dine in for breakfast on a raining morning. The setting was lovely and heritage like, the staff were friendly and warm. I had Eggs Benedict with salmon, it was okay, and hubby had The big...boy burger, looks good and he liked it, and the girls had Pancakes for kids. They are reasonably priced and the girls are enjoy the pancakes. The coffee was quite good. Overall, we like the experience at the cafe, will go again for sure, will try the outdoor seating.More

There is a 'farewell' sign about paying the bill as the last thing diner sees. Was that a classy dining place or a servo? No communication about BYO policy or lack thereof. A $20.00 slug for for 'Corkage' and mediocre wine list to boot. Impatient...wait staff who do not like to ....wait for diners to finish a course. Hyperminimalist menu and virtually,all items are squeezed between two pieces of bread. An effort to turn raw ingredients into a meal which is not a sandwich wound be appreciated. Go and admire the building and if hunger pangs, eat at home...More

Is Cafe Valetta under new management? terrible coffee... soup of the day was oily and inedible I’ve always loved this venue... not today !!! 😪

so let's start with the good parts. The setting is nice, and opposite Queens Park , there is also parking at the rear which is very helpful as parking on the road is hard to find. Staff were pleasant but clearly under pressure to take...orders and serve food as fast as possible. We ordered coffee to start while we looked at the menu - coffee arrived in cardboard cups as in take away cups - very strange. We ordered the barramundi and chips with salad. The fish was lovely and the batter crisp and not oily, same with the chips, fresh and crunchy . Ok so let's move on the the not so good parts. The salad was awful, tasteless , no dressing, just bland. We felt like we were eating grass. Again the Aole was tasteless. For the price of $35 each for the fish and chips it was clearly not value for money. Though the Park Cafe just a couple of doors up lacks the nice setting , that is where we will go in future, the Parks Prawn salad is amazing and less expensive .More

Do you mean BYO? If so, the venue is licensed.
