We stopped along here for a coffee break on a road trip and it was well worth the stop. The cafe serves Strawberries with cream/ice cream, scones, shakes, coffee etc. The strawberries were very fresh and super sweet and well worth the stop. The cafe also has a shop with spreads, jams, sauces etc - some made on premises and some from other local providers. There is also a shop with souvenirs. There is cafe seating indoors and out and we quite enjoyed sitting under the shade of a big tree out front. There is a mini kids play area but is only suitable for under 5s.

I can't forget the single sponge cake made by the female boss. What exactly is in that cream? It's a flavor I want forever.

Amazing Strawberry Shortcake🫶

Where it all started

The Super Strawberry began at “Elm Vale” Furracabad, a district near Glen Innes. Ivan and Rhonda March came to Glen Innes from South Australia bringing with them some strawberry runners for the garden.

Around 1972 Rhonda and Ivan noticed that whilst they had plenty of strawberries none were available in the local fruit shops and supermarkets in the district during the summer months. Upon investigation it was discovered that the district was only supplied with the Queensland winter crop out of the Brisbane markets.

A decision was made to grow a small area of approximately 500 plants to see if their was a market for the fruit. Punnets were hand made and cellophane cut to cover them at night to supply the local fruit shops – Floyds Fruit Market, Stanton’s Fruit Shop and MC Mackenzie and Sons Supermarket. After a successful year, the decision was made to move into Glen Innes to a leased piece of land on the corner of Fawcett Lane and the New England Highway. A small shed from the Furracabad Farm was moved onto site. A flip top opening cut into the side and a counter built

Selling to the local shops and retail sales from this shop proved the business to be successful and land was purchased on the corner of Glen Legh Road and New England Highway and the shed was moved to that site and more strawberries planted.

From this the business grew… a bigger dining selection, coffee, gift lines, a bigger range of jams, a new kitchen, a new dining room, and a large green house
