About The Bay Cafe

Located within a stroll of the blue waters of Toowoon Bay, The Bay Café is a favourite with locals for serving fresh seafood from its welcoming venue on Bay Road. Enter to discover a contemporary vibe styled with polished wood floors, a vibrant red feature wall, high-back leather chairs and black and white photography hung on the walls, creating a modern dining space ideal for celebrating any occasion; which sees the café at capacity most weekends, making bookings essential. Offering a Mod Oz menu with tastes of outback Australia, perhaps try sea scallops tossed in mornay sauce, glazed with cheese and served with a salad garnish; or beef fillet, prawns, scallops, calamari, oysters and Hollandaise sauce. Indulge in a divine dessert of chocolate mud cake, chocolate mousse and ice cream.
