About Fourthchild Cafe Restaurant

Step out of Ipswich heat and into the air-conditioned cool of Fourthchild Cafe Restaurant on Brisbane Street, to indulge in a taste of housemade artisan European cuisine. Matte black features and exposed brick walls keep this trendy venue cool in humid Queensland weather, while round globe lights, native flowers and timber décor create a welcoming vibe for diners to relax. Serving meals made freshly on premises, Fourthchild offers sumptuous options created by a team of fully qualified chefs. Choose from a light lunch of Thai beef salad with Asian vegetables and fried shallots, or if dining later delve into pan roasted chicken breast with crispy prosciutto, roasted parsnip, asparagus and a sage and Dijon cream. If tempted by sweets, be sure to leave room for banana fritters.

Nice coffee and food



Great food excellent service



Really great to see quality cafe culture arriving in ipswich. We can finally take people out when they visit for either a coffee or lunch without having to go to brisbane


Went here on Labour Day, and had some breakfast, poached eggs over field mushrooms, sour dough and gently cooked greens. Really nicely put together, and a very high standard.


Excellent Campos Coffee, Fours hearts pale ale, deserts to die for, friendly service.


Very impressed . Service was excellent. We both ordered entrees they were very large and taste to die for. Mains were also great size and taste. Both our entrees and mains were served quickly. Highly recommend for a romantic dinner.

First time at this place and the atmosphere and service was great. Unfortunately my poached eggs were way overdone. They offered to re do them but I didn't want to wait as my partner had her meal. Despite the eggs I enjoyed the combination of the garlic mushrooms, tomato compote spinach and goats cheese
