Fly with the Nuns in Samford Village
All too often you go to a much hyped dining location only to leave feeling completely under-whelmed. Every now and then however, you find one that meets or maybe even exceeds expectations. The Flying Nun Cafe at Samford is one of these rare birds.

From the second you drive up Station Road you can just tell that this place oozes character. There is plenty of well shaded seating on the deck, but since it was a 34 degree day, mum and I opted to sit inside. I'm pleased we did! We were seated in the old church section of the cafe and it was such a cute little area you couldn't help but be charmed.

The service is as lovely as the location. Staff are friendly, attentive and helpful. Even on a busy day you are not left waiting long for assistance and food. This sets the perfect for the food, which can only be described as fairly spectacular for a country cafe.

Flying Nun's menu has something to suit everyone. From steaks to inspired vegetarian creations they have it all covered. Mum went for the Butter Chicken served with raita, rice and mini pappadums. It was perfectly spiced and not too creamy. I decided to try something a little different and opted for the Quinoa, Besan and Sunflower Seed Wedges served with pan fried eggplant and a spicy harissa and tomato relish. It was also undeniably delicious! The cafe seems to make an effort not only to cater for a range of tastes but also for a range of dietary requirements many gluten free and vegetarian options available. They also pride themselves in using organic options where available and grown many of their own herbs.

For a unique and delightful dining experience on the Northside of Brisbane I would most definitely recommend stopping in at the Flying Nun!
