Great service and delicious food. Fantastic atmosphere. So glad we booked as this is obviously a popular spot as it was near full by the time we had finished.
Great service. Amazing food and a perfect little, sheltered outdoor area and slide for the kids. We will most definitely be back and bring our family!
Fabulous staff, a great space, and fantastic coffee and food! Had a great breakfast here, and we will definitely be back sooner rather than later.
Quite a nice experience. Beautiful yard with nice food. We drive from Brisbane down to there but with no disappoint. Will visit another time while free.
Nice food and awesome undercover outdoor area so you can sit outside even when it is raining. Staff is very friendly and fast. The coffee was great and the food portions perfect.
I found the metal chairs inside not overly comfortable, otherwise the general dining experience and the coffee was great and I would definitely return. Like the quirkiness
Great value for us, especially as there part of DTL. Good open feel with a decent menu choice. Nice to be able to enjoy with friends.
We recently lunched at the Yard Cafe and really enjoyed the experience! Our meals were fantastic and the service also great. We will visit again!
Food was nice coffee also but first cup was only warm and I had asked for extra hot. We sat outside roomy, tables not too close together
The venue is great and the staff are lovely. But the meals were super over priced, and although the food was good quality it was badly put together and the meal sizes were tiny.
