Great spot for family breakfast or lunch. Kids are entertained with the farm animals nearby. Menu is awesome, catering for gluten free and vegan. I had the Anglers Breakfast which was perfect! The smoked salmon was done well. We also tried the waffles with bacon, and the green breakfast which to me looked delicious too. Lovely neighbourhood cafe with sustainable... More

Took a walk along the Yarra and ended up at this lovely spot. We had the field breakfast, the waffles, a cappuccino and a chocolate shake. All spot on. This was just pure heaven!! The beans were a surprising standout. The sun was beautiful, the rooster was crowing and the surrounding farm made for a charming walk after the meal.

What more could you want! Little charming cafe at the Children's Farm where you can eat your lunch/brunch/ snack amongst chickens. And then go and pat the little guinea pigs and goats. Perfect for all people, great and small. I love the sausage rolls and cupcakes!

I visit here frequently, usually with two pre schoolers in two. Every time the staff are lovely, friendly and service is fast. Coffee is good and food is yum.

It was ok... That's the best way to sum up this cafe. The surroundings are pretty cool but nothing really special. The food was average at best. We had the pork belly rolls which unfortunately seemed to be more fat than pork. They try so hard to give off a hipster/hippy vibe that you don't believe what they are trying... More

This place is a favourite and I love to visit when the farmers market is on (check dates). The food is fabulously fresh, absolutely delicious and reasonably priced. Plus its in a really pretty setting which feels miles away from the city. Service is always friendly.

Outstanding food and service. The God is all locally sourced and you can taste that. It was very busy when we were there but they did an awesome job of looking after us!

Best of both worlds... Good quality cafe food/coffee mixed in with being the perfect place for kids (young and old!) I had a brief- a place for lunch that will keep the kids entertained. As I don't have kids, it was a struggle for me to think where to go. Google results came up with this place, I was not... More
