Located in the sleepy town of Marburg, a 20 minute drive from Ipswich on the Warrego Highway, The Girls’ Coffee Bar offers great coffee and delectable eats.

As part of Phippsy’s complex – a popular stop for drivers halfway between Brisbane and Toowoomba – this charming little eatery has al fresco and indoor air-conditioned dining.

Open for Breakfast, Lunch and on Fridays and Saturdays for Dinner, The Girls’ Coffee Bar’s Breakfast specialty of Eggs Benedict is a firm favourite – poached eggs, locally baked ham on homemade dark rye toast with a tasty hollandaise sauce. The Sticky Ribs and homemade Gourmet Pies are also much loved, while sweet-tooths won’t be able to resist goodies like the Caramel Swirl Brownie or Choc-Ginger Cheesecake. Gluten-free and vegetarian options are available, and jams and honey can also be purchased.

Coffee is supplied by Melbourne-based company, Amanti, whose beans have a tangy flavour and lovely, light lingering after-taste. Early-morning commuters make use of the ‘Text Ur Coffee’ by ordering via their mobile phones and picking up their caffeine fix 15 minutes later. If your day requires something a little stronger, the cafĂ©/restaurant is also fully licensed.
