This place is not all about the food. It is the experience of seeing a wonderful community of hard working people sharing their life and talents.The food is awesome, but so much more to see and enjoy. Can't wait to go back!!!!

The burgers here are 100% grass-fed beef, which is a good thing. We have to assume that they are very lean, as neither the cheeseburger nor the swiss mushroom burger had any flavor, which a burger with more fat would have naturally had. With such...More

Had the jerk chicken tacos for lunch, first time I have seen these on the menu. Ingredients are fresh and well prepared, Cafe Homestead is worth the short drive!

I'm sorry. We do not. However, we do offer call ahead seating. If you call a half hour or so before you come and we are on a wait, we will place you on our wait list. Otherwise, seating is first come, first serve.

Cafe Homestead serves deliciously healthful food in the unique setting of a traditional craft village in our sustainable, organic farming community. We offer grass-fed beef; fresh buns, bread and rolls baked daily from whole-grain flour by Artisan Oven; cheeses produced by our community’s internationally award-winning Brazos Valley Cheese company; and other fine foods, including our all-natural, delectable ice cream. Our fruit and vegetables are always fresh, and we strive to provide locally grown produce. Begun in 1994 as a small deli, Cafe Homestead has grown to become a restaurant serving over 45,000 guests a year and is widely known for its menu of traditional Texan, Mediterranean and specialty cuisines. Before or after enjoying a relaxing meal served by friendly people from our farm community, visit our craft shops, Gift Barn and Model Homestead and take a Hayride to our scenic overlook.
