We had gone here based on reviews of others & were not disappointed! The grounds are also very unique, with shops and a working blacksmith & wood working shop. It's off the beaten path, but worth the drive.

Loved the food & atmosphere! The sweet potato soup with jalapeños & bacon does not disappoint! The desserts are divine! The homemade cheese plate features jalapeño cheeses, smoked Gouda that is creamy & smoky, and a horseradish cheese. Yum!

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.
