Forty West Cafe

Ripley

Forty West Café and bar is an oasis of good food in contemporary open plan digs overlooking a state of the art aquativity playground in Ipswich’s new housing estate of Providence Ripley.

Cafes don’t get much more child friendly than Forty West café, starting with the multiple free parking spaces in the adjacent parking lot, to the pram-friendly ramp access, plentiful high chairs and the super-sized covered deck with comfy lounges and big community tables overlooking the playground. Otherwise there’s dining tables inside and a line-up of stools at the open window.

The canny folk behind Woolloongabba cafe Moose & Gibson and Tarragindi's Leaf Espresso have brought their considerable hospitality nous to this Ipswich outpost and the result is a café that wouldn’t be out of place in inner city Brisbane.
