If you’re in or near the Ipswich area, you don’t have to journey too far to Journeys Kitchen and Bar, nestled in the Orion Springfield Central precinct.

Elevated and overlooking the expansive water play park, Orion Lagoon, Journeys is a spacious and breezy restaurant perfect for breakfast, lunch and on three nights a week, dinner. Their cabinet of sweet treats – with pastries made onsite by the pastry chef – is also very tempting, and the paleo-friendly offerings fly off the shelves.

Boasting a kids’ play area, Journeys Kitchen and Bar is a popular meeting place for parents, and its Kids’ Menu features favourites for the young ones such as Toast with Cheese and Vegemite for Breakfast, while Dinner options include Fish and Chips and Ice-Cream with various toppings.

Many customers come for the Toby’s Estate ethically sourced coffee and tea from Panama, and the fully stocked bar offers bubbles, wine, craft beer, spirits and cocktails. Try the Tapas options such as Pork Belly Kakuni or Chicken Tulips, while Dinner favourites include Slow-cooked Beef Cheek and Fresh Egg Spaghetti with Sand Crab. If you have an event you’d like catered, Journeys is happy to help.
