About Me:
Dave has an introvenious drip inserted into his left arm for a permenant dose of coffee goodness. The flow to the drip is fed by a team of expat baristi who only pour restricted shots to ensure only fatty acid goodness is to hit Dave's central blood system.

Star Gardentown Cafe is four years strong. It is right in Toowoomba's CBD and services a whole lot of commercial and retail workers.

Interaction with customers; continually learning & pouring great art on top of great coffee.
