The Flying Nun" Café represents all that is quaint. It is an old Church conversion full of character with many choices of seating arrangements, where indoors boasts spectacular stained glass windows that spill coloured light onto tables, to outdoor seating on the deck where Zen comes into play. This flows out into the rainforest garden setting where the talking, blue and gold Macaw, Jasper, is a magnet for children and adults alike. Large groups can be accommodated, as well as small, cosy couples, where you can escape the world and find your own private nook. Cars line the streets of this popular spot.

Sumptuous cakes and delicious coffees are popular choices and breakfast and light lunches are also available to order. Some of the produce is grown on-site and 95% of the cakes are made in-store. The atmosphere is casual, relaxed and friendly – prices are slightly on the high side, ranging from $4 to $19 for breakfast and from $14 to $26 for lunches, but represent good quality. The kid's lunchtime menu ranges from $4 to $9. There is a BYO option with $5 corkage.

Opening hours are Tuesday to Sunday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Unfortunately, "The Nun" as it is affectionately known by locals, is closed on Mondays. It is nestled in the heart of rural Samford at 16 Station Street, only 25 mins (with no traffic!) North West of Brisbane and deserves a visit.

There are many other attractions in and around Samford that are well-worth exploring. The Samford Museum, Crystal Shop, John Scott Park and Samford Pub are all within walking distance of "The Nun". Alternatively, meander on up Mount Glorious where there are breathtaking views and majestic rainforest walks. Dayboro is also a short drive away where its old world charm will embrace you.

Your Comment
This cafe was great we went for a day trip there and sat out in the garden and had lunch. We were able to have our dog with us and the food was great.
