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's an abundance of tempting choices available on the all-day breakfast menu, such as pink coconut yoghurt panna cotta, breakfast bruschetta; one-pan ricotta hotcake; crispy cheesy sweet potato with free range eggs, grilled bacon, hollandaise, sumac and wilted greens; breakfast gnocchi; and a healthy farmhouse bowl.
The lunch menu changes seasonally with the likes of hot smoked salmon nicoise, chicken larb and lemongrass salad, corned beef and rye bread toastie and a daily 'Farmhouse Luncheon Special' according to the chef's whim.
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.
