I am a Brisbane cyclist and rode up Mt Nebo on Saturday with 3 friends. We were sitting on the plastic chairs outside the cafe waiting for them to open for a coffee. They turned up, but instead of inviting us in for a coffee, they started yelling that we were on private property and trespassing. Needless to say, we didn't stay for coffee and went 100m down toe road to the next cafe. I have never in all my years of eating out been spoken to that way. I can't tell you what the food or coffee is like, but sure as hell will never be back to try it!
About 30 minutes out of The Gap is Cafe Boombana, a gorgeous little mountain cafe. It is set just off the road on the Brisbane side of Mt Nebo village and has a lovely atmosphere and plenty of space. Dining is available inside and out, with a rear verandah overlooking the rainforest and a small dam at the bottom of the hill. New owners have just taken over the cafe (and it was good before) and the menu is as good, if not better, than previously. Almost everything is home cooked, and made from scratch upon ordering, but the wait is never very long. We ordered the beef nachos with guacamole and sour cream, and it was the best I have ever eaten. Instead of the beef and cheese being plonked on top of the corn chips, it was spread and layered throughout the whole dish and was divine. Definitely a plate to share as well, as I could never have eaten it all on my own. We also had iced chocolates and iced coffees, followed by cappuccino and English Breakfast tea, and all wereread more
Cafe Boombana is a hidden treasure in an even more exquisite setting. Nestled in the valleys of Mount Nebo and only a 45-minute drive from the hustle and bustle of the city you are met with inviting & friendly owners in a small, charming setting. I had the pleasure of visiting here on a Sunday morning and managed to secure a table with a beautiful view overlooking a small lake and forest tracks. Boombana seems to be an ideal stop for those enjoying a leisurely drive. I was amused after ordering to receive a stuffed toy (Eye-ore) on a pole instead of a number and was tempted to secure it as a keepsake. It took a while for me to decide what to order as the menu offered so many goodies (vegetarian incl) and went with a BLT with avo & cheese. I consider myself to be a connoisseur of the BLT and was very impressed, and I must admit this was the first one I had not been able to finish.
