Sipping lattes surrounded by chickens and menacing goats might not sound like a hygienic way to spend the afternoon, but we promise the Farm Café offers an experience beyond the enticing aromas of animal droppings.
Alfresco-Provincial-Living is the only way to justly depict the charming set up of the Farm Café. Your dream garden wedding would look like this. The wooden greenhouse-like seating area is dotted with dimly lit light bulbs and is, of course, surrounded by rich and vibrant vegetation. The only sounds that fill the air are the quite whistles of the blowing wind and the calm chatter from the other tables.
Goat’s Toast to be accompanied by an aromatic latte (goodbye mochas). I ordered the Goat’s toast consisting of creamy goat’s curd, a poached egg, house beetroot relish, herbs and a side of spinach. $16.50
The sweet spaghetti like beetroot and the sharp goats curd, twirl on your taste buds in complete unison. The spectacular, however, didn’t begin until I sandwiched everything before into the toast. The creamy yolk from the egg and the zesty spinach were a pleasure to scoff. Do yourself a favour and forget the utensils. Get into this dish with your hands. Like my outfit that day, everything was on point.
Swiss Brown Mushrooms. This consisted of Swiss Brown Mushrooms, Goat’s curd, Sautéed silverbeet and Poached eggs on a bed of Crispy Polenta with a side of Avocado. This dish is also Gluten-Free and Vegan friendly! $16.50
The goat’s curd made out to be the perfect spread for the polenta and could not get anymore fresh than this. As the poached eggs dribbled down the mushrooms and silverbeet onto the polenta bed, this dish turned out to be delectable.
The Farm Café is just a stone’s throw from the city, though you feel as you’ve travelled for miles into the heart of the country.
