Farmhouse Restaurant & Coffee Shop
Housed in a massive shed at Wellington Point Farm, one of the few remaining operational farms in the Redlands, the cafe and restaurant shares the shed with the farm's Market Hall, providing high quality, fresh fruit and vegetables to the public.
Customers can pick up an expertly-brewed espresso along with a sweet treat at the coffee shop that's open daily, or dine-in at the stunning, rustic restaurant - think vaulted ceilings with timber beams and exposed brickwork - overlooking the farm and its rich, red soil, with indoor/outdoor all-weather dining available from Wednesday to Sunday.
The menu crafted by award-winning, Michelin trained chef, Gordon MacGregor, features farm fresh produce, promoting a farm to plate, healthy eating philosophy.
Breakfast includes simple fare done well like Breakfast Yoghurt with toasted Farmhouse muesli and seasonal fruit, and toasted sourdough with two eggs cooked your way, crispy bacon and wilted spinach, and more creative dishes such as charred mango cheek with coconut tapioca, roasted smoked macadamia and farm honey.
There's toasted sourdough topped with everything from cream cheese, smoked salmon and capers, finished with fennel pollen; beetroot hummus, feta, confit tomatoes and spiced chickpeas; sauteed spinach, mushrooms, feta and thyme; and tahini smashed avocado with roasted pepitas, sunflower seeds and confit tomatoes.
Alternatively, there's the Benny Bagel (toasted fresh bagel topped with perfectly poached eggs, rocket and house-made hollandaise), Scrambled Eggs served with charred broccolini, blistered tomatoes, chilli oil and sourdough, and the hearty Farmhouse Breakfast - house-made bacon, Lorne sausage, slow-roasted tomatoes, mushrooms, hashbrowns, beans, two fried eggs and toasted sourdough.
The lunch menu features small plates, share plates and mouth-watering mains. Small plates range from marinated mixed olives and Farmhouse terrine with toasted sourdough and pickled veggies, to cured ocean trout with herb crème fraîche, pickled cucumber and orange, and burrata with vine-ripened tomatoes and pickled red onion.
Share plates include the Ploughman's (vintage cheddar, sliced ham, pickled onions and cornichons); Antipasto (baby artichokes, marinated olives, charred zucchini and baba ganoush); Charcuterie (salami, Guanciale, Serrano Jamon and Bresaola); and Cheese (vintage cheddar, Taleggio, Gorgonzola and Double Brie).
For something more substantial, there are Main Plates: Crispy Skin Barramundi, Herb & Parmesan Crusted Chicken, Roast Pork Chop, Slow-Cooked Lam Leg, and Grass Fed Scotch Fillet Steak.
The Farmhouse is fully licensed with a carefully curated wine list (available by the glass and bottle), local craft brews and international beers, and top-shelf spirits; while non-alcoholic drinks include coffee, T2 teas, fresh juices, smoothies, thick shakes and soft drinks.
No visit to the farm would be complete without stopping by the Market Hall where you can pick up locally sourced, fresh fruit and veggies, plus dairy products and pantry staples including milk and cheese, eggs and honey, nuts and condiments (jams, mustards, relishes and chutneys), with a deli and butcher coming to the Market Hall soon. .
