Michelle and Claire, new kids on the block in Toowoomba’s food scene, have transported a little touch of Oo La La to Neil Street. French-themed decor and a French-inspired menu make a visit to Googs Cafe a fresh experience…..and the food reaches way beyond eggs benny.
If you are looking for take-away coffee and light fluffy scones you are in for a treat. These delicious scones were highly recommended by one of the regulars who just dropped in while we were there.
Or relax and whileaway some time in the classy, comfortable coffee and chat corner – books and a sophisticated hangout…….it’s calling you to try it!
If you are wondering about the name GOOGS, then, yes, definitely a reference to eggs (the googie eggs of childhood), but the origin lies in the pet name Michelle was called growing up as a young child in Yorkshire. Googie……..and with the rich yellow yolks of the New England Free Range Egg Farmers eggs, and the different crepes and omelettes on our plates, the name is right on the money.
The young staff are eager to please and happy to recommend treats to take away with the coffees. The Strawberry Ambrosia meant my dinner party dessert was sorted with no fuss or effort. Nothing was too much bother, and the very different backstories of the partners are fascinating and definitely the reason for return visits. Stay tuned!
As a new business in the city, there are exciting menu items, special menus for Father’s Day this weekend, but also a wonderful Spring Carnival Menu with something for everyone on Friday and Saturday nights – pre-theatre or a special celebration treat.
We recommend you book soon so you don’t suffer regret!
Michelle and Claire are enjoying meeting their coffee drinking regulars, and it was lovely to see familiar faces supporting this new venture. Local suppliers are providing quality products and the choices are spoiling taste buds.
Looking for something with a hint of France…….look no further. Breakfast business meetings, friends for a cuppa and chat, light and cheerful lunches or popping in for a take-away……..Googs is calling.
