If you’re getting married in Toowoomba, Kingfishers Cafe & Restaurant is the place to tie the knot. Tranquil gardens, exquisite food, and exemplary service make this venue an absolute jewel of the town.
Any functions are possible at Kingfishers, in fact, even at night – which may be a surprise to first time casual daytime diners because this venue doesn’t open at night except for functions.
Having recently acquired this beautiful slice of nature, new owner Simon Desmarchelier and his wife Renee are very excited about their first business venture – but the good news is, Simon has plenty of experience with events – he’s been involved in producing the Brisbane Festival, the Commonwealth Games, and Beef Week in Rockhampton.
So being able to handle 75-80 people inside and another 75-80 outside is not a problem for this gentleman and his team.
Of course it’s definitely not all about the functions at Kingfishers Cafe & Restaurant because it’s so desirable as a daytime cafe. The image above can’t help but set a tantalising tone – Tempura nori salmon with soba noodle salad, pickled cucumber and kewpie mayonnaise. Oishi-ne!
Or how about this Spiced duck breast with kipfler potato, broccolini orange purée, fig compote and mandarin jus. Hmmm is this homage to Simon’s particularly French surname? The modern Australian version of duck l’orange?
The Kingfishers Cafe team pride themselves on offering something well outside of the franchise model of a lot of cafes and food providers that service Toowoomba. They’re not an espresso-on-the-go kind of place, they’re a place for relaxed contemplation over sublime food, dreaming on a quiet day of festive occasions like the Carnival of the Flowers which happens next door every September, enjoying the wonders of Queensland nature and weather.
