Rustic regional charm and artisan wares at this stylish cafe
The Southern Vales are home to many fine cafes, restaurants and the great local farmers' market. A new café on the scene is gaining a following in the district. It's a bit of the trek, but nevertheless well worth finding. The Farm has great service, consistently excellent coffee and a fantastic little menu of delightfully presented breakfasts, lunches and snacks. Eat inside in the large open room or outside under the canopy of trees and umbrellas.

This rustic café has been thoughtfully put together with style and flair by owner Robyn Dahl and team. Robyn relates that she has put all her energy into making this café a great place to visit. In fact she has been so busy with the café and associated B & B that she hasn't read a book for nearly two years. This project has been a labour of love with many hours devoted to the whole concept. Robyn also makes a mean long black. All the coffee is freshly brewed.

Robyn and the team at The Farm have a great sense of attention to detail and high standard of presentation in this entire project. From the décor, food and drinks, products for sale, art works and quality of fittings throughout the café and B & B. It is all outstanding.

Art Gallery and Giftware
Giftware and regional produce is all lovingly displayed in a large open area. With huge wide wooden doors and high gabled beams. This building looks as if it could double as a wine cellar in another life. There is art from local artists on the walls, organic olive oil, skin care, wine and wine tasting and fresh regional produce and artisan products.

Two large lounge chairs are available for those wanting to relax with a newspaper and coffee. There is even a display of vintage radiograms. Quite a collection that is well presented, as with everything here.

Menu
The Farm specialises in organic foods and good quality local produce. For breakfast try the poached eggs with various side orders. Lunch has a Thai chicken salad and spicy tomato soup. Although the menu changes according to what is available. There is a platter for 2 or 3 people with generous serves that looks delicious. For the sweet tooth, there are loads of cakes and desserts to try. The prices are on the upper end of café prices.

B & B
The Farm also has a newly built B & B in an adjoining area of the building. It features modern décor and uplifting views across the vales, coast and vines. A great place to unwind in the tranquility of the vales countryside. This accommodation is luxurious and self contained, directly overlooking the olive grove. Each apartment has its own private entrance. There is even a private helipad for regional tours. The quality of accommodation is a great opportunity to spoil someone you love for that weekend away.
