"Stopped on the way between Cairns and Townsville to find this amazing deli and restaurant. Service was second to none, polite and friendly staff. Food was divine and so much choice plus the deli to have a browse in. Excellent and highly recommend." Jayne
A real gem on the main street of Ingham. Food tastes home-made, with strong flavours. Worth driving from Townsville just for lunch. Excellent range of hard-to-find authentic Italian packaged food, plus a great range of deli items. Be prepared to stock up. Mal
We visited this Deli as part of a food and wine tour. They welcomed us with platters of local cheeses, olives, salami and ham. A lovely selection. It's on the list for a return visit to enjoy a meal next time. Sheena
A very nice place to visit and superb coffee! Nice 'atmosphere'. Excellent service. Highly recommended. Felix
Have stopped here several times before. Always great service and friendly staff. Great variety of food, drink and deli and snack items. Had a ham and salad sandwich couldn't jump over and fresh ham, and lots of it. Had best chocolate malted ever! There is so much history here and in the alleyway beside with a large mosaic outside with history of the area. Brought chocolates and fudge as well and delicious. Stop if you want but we definitely will. Ian S
Service with a smile, great food and good atmosphere. Call in and check out the attached deli for some yummy continental foods. Josie
My last visit was 3 years ago. Yet I walk back in and I am greeted like they saw me yesterday! Happy and wonderful staff!
The most divine coffee got me started then it was a hard choice... what for lunch?
Lamb and rosemary pie won with succulent big chunks of lamb.
No room for dessert but I could not pass up delicate sponge cake or a crunchy and smooth fresh cannoli.
Karen and the team you are a must do in Ingham. Corinne
Had to wait in Ingham for my car to be serviced. JK's kindly let me sit in a comfy leather lounge in the corner while I waited. Their range of yummy, Mediterranean-influenced food was very tempting but I limited myself to great coffees and a Melting Moment. Highly recommended. Lin
This deli serves wonderful Italian influenced food.it also provides a wide choice of deli items. The owners were also leaders in constructing the adjacent mural about the sugar industry. Note the large number of nationalities involved. Lunch and a history lesson. Ingram
JK's gourmet pies would rank as the best I've had the pleasure of indulging in. Meal size and delicious, you'll definitely need to use the supplied cutlery to attack one of these. My personal favourites are Chicken & Camebert or Pepper Steak. Worth the drive from Townsville to feast on one of these for lunch! David
