Cafe Two 14's beginnings are founded in the history of the 2nd/14th Light Horse Regiment (Queensland Mounted Infantry). Our Director is a military veteran, who served as an Australian Army Officer, beginning his career as an Australian Armoured Corps Officer.
The 2nd/14th LHR (QMI) was formed in 1952, though sentimentally traces its lineage to 1860. Consequently, there was a claim that it was the oldest Australian Regular Army unit through the antecedent units 2nd Moreton Light Horse (QMI) and the 14th West Moreton Light Horse (QMI) and celebrated its 150th anniversary in 2010.
Cafe Two 14 continues to honour our heritage and the veterans who served Australia in the 2nd/14th Light Horse Regiment by adopting the green and white patch colours in our branding as well as their motto, 'forward'.
We are a proud Australian small business, serving local communities and giving back to support Australian military veterans and their families.
