Farmhouse Cafe is a spacious, country-style cafe in a rustic old Kedron warehouse with wooden verandah.
Dotted with barrows of flourishing herbs, Farmhouse Cafe proudly serves food grown in Queensland such as Mt Cotton mushrooms, Scenic Rim free-range eggs and haloumi from South Maclean.
The cafe draws its inspiration from Farmer Joe's, a much loved family-owned produce store that served the Kedron locals for many decades. Consequently, produce for the cafe is sourced directly from local and regional farmers and the aim is to re-create Farmer Joe's community hub.
There are many satisfying choices available on the all-day breakfast menu, such as shakshuka skillet, ricotta hotcake, breakfast gnocci, farmhouse bowl and chia pudding. The lunch menu changes seasonally with fresh fish tacos, steak sandwich, chicken breast and green papaya salad and vine ripened tomato and ricotta tart currently on offer.
For those in search of liquid refreshment, the cafe serves Merlo coffee, loose leaf teas, superfood smoothies and freshly pressed juices.
Nice to know - Farmhouse Cafe welcomes children, with a collection of books, baskets of chalk and blackboards for little ones to play with.
