116 Laneway Cafe & Bar


116 Laneway Café and Bar is a funky bar and eatery with shipping container servery in an Ipswich city laneway between two grand heritage-listed buildings.

Strung with fairy lights, dotted with pot plants and scattered with a colourful array of tables and chairs, 116 Laneway is a great spot for some early morning breakfast and coffee, lunch or some evening tapas, craft beer, wine and cocktails.
