Recently we had breakfast at this cafe. What a great idea that was. Very rustic outside. Plenty of tables from 2 seats up to 8 seats. Lots of memorabilia to have a look at. The staf were very cheerful and helpful. Yummy food in just the right amount. We will be definitely going there again.

Stopped for lunch in the lovely cafe. Staff were very helpful and attentive. Everything was home made. Lovely quiet spot to enjoy the peace and quiet. Thoroughly enjoyed our afternoon stop and highly recommend.

This cafe does not look like much from the outside, but once you step inside, prepare to be amazed. The coffee was our favourite in North Queensland, the service was second to none, and our homemade sausage roll was fantastic. I wish we had more time to come back every day we were on the Tablelands! Truly great little cafe,... More

We have breakfast here on a regular basis and have never been disappointed. Staff are friendly and service is good despite them being extremely busy on Sunday's. The coffee is also great and I love the informal country setting. Always a warm and welcoming atmosphere. Ladies don't forget to visit Global Freestyle clothing shop across the car park.

My wife and I were in Yungaburra on the Atherton tablelands recently and drove around this gorgeous little village. We did not know there was that much to choose from in the area, we both agreed and the Whistle stop looked so inviting and the staff were so friendly.

I judge such places by the amount of effort being displayed by management, their initial contact with me and the exit approach which is most important to leave the customer with a nice feeling. In the case of the Whistle Stop they do everything well. Of course the food is excellent, country fare with a touch of big city, which... More

Coffee was ok. The food was delicious but a little pricey. Pretty laid back service to the point of a smile wouldn't go a stray when serving..

Thank Pat B
