    Stepping into this place feels like a local cafe in Napa Valley. The food and service were excellent. I tried the hock with a side of scrambled eggs. The ham was just that little bit smokey. Awesome!

    Wow, buzzing vibe with trendy music playing in the background. Impressive outdoor garden setting. Great choices of brunch and lunch food. We do find it a bit too busy and noisy for regular visits.

    Awesome place to hang out if you have a family -- good rustic style foods. Just make sure you don't accidentally step on a child or small dog whilst collecting your organic soy latte

    Grab some fresh Nutella or Strawberry Jam filled Donuts by the counter while you wait for your table. Absolutely worth it.

    Great food! If coming for brunch, try the avocado, king crab omelette, and salmon brioche. Great coffee too!

    New favourite place! Food & coffee is amazing. The wait for the cafè is about 30 minutes, but you can explore the markets & stalls while you wait. Loved it.

    Best place for wedding reception. the decor & setting is beautiful, the best looking reception ive been to & a dancefloor under fairy lights. a definite consideration for ideas. Can only hold 100 ppl.

    Come here early! Such an Instagram-worthy place with Kevin bacon (their pet pig)! The food display is very instagram-worthy as well. Must try their tea!

    Sat next to the kitchen after a short 15min wait for a table. Everything looked gorgeous - burgers especially! Buns and bread all made in their own bakery. Amazing coffee same with chilli mayo fries!!

    Fantastic outdoor garden area...grab a coffee and pastry and chill out...would recommend to stay away from the cheeseburger - bun was dry, patty was cold and not juicy notwithstanding busy turnaround

    Nice spot for brunch but long queue to get inside. Luckily they have a buzzer to leave you to do plenty of things, like visit Kevin Bacon while you wait. You may also bump into a couple famous faces!

    Bloody amazing...love the rose lemonade, breakfast buns and bbq lunch options...they have a baby farm full of animals and lost of fun and interesting nooks and crannies at the grounds!

    Amazing place. You'll have to wait a while for a table, definitely on sunny days but it's well worth it and time flies while you're walking around the grounds with a coffee.

    This place is busy! Nice little menu, rustic atmosphere, visit the farm yard to see the animals (that may end up on the menu). Parking is difficult though so if you can avoid driving there, do so

    You'd think weekdays would be more slow paced, but they're not. The grounds are always busy! But the visit is always worth it. Do try the chocolate filled donuts!

    Larger monthly market on the first weekend of every month. Serves great brunch dishes and tasty drinks from milkshakes to coffee. Get in before lunch and go for a walk in the market!

    Queue can be long but they have awesome queue management, supplying you with buzzer if weekends. Otherwise, the guy who manages the queue remembers your face and will go find you when table is ready.

    Avoid the burger - the coffee is excellent - be sure to wander around to the meat salt cheese deli (and yes it is always packed)

    You can't book over a phone so if you are coming in a weekend come as early as you can to reserve a table, we went at 1:30 pm and had 15 reservations ahead of us.

    Rose lemonade is fabulous on a hot summers day. Place not as busy as a year ago so not too hard to get a seat on the weekends. If you haven't been yet, go now.

    Came here on a windy day, got the token and wait for our seat since it's full house. You can walk around and check out their famous pig "Kevin the bacon" and sheep. Foods is pretty okay,

    Stand outs are coffee and buffalo mozzarella salad. Overall - great food, venue and good vibes. Expect an hour wait so come prepared (eat before, being cards, go shopping etc)

    Beef burger is brilliant. One of the very best I've had. Expect a line-up and a battle for tables, though.

    This whole compound is fairly ridiculous. The fried chicken on the menu came out as an amazing burger on a pretzel bun. So good. Cheap too!

    Such a neat little place to spend a weekend morning/afternoon. Great food stands and sitting area!

    Lamb shank, beef cheek sandwich, salmon, mushroom tart and chips to die for! Don't forget to visit Kevin bacons house while you wait!

    Get there early on weekends and it is well worth the wait for a warm inside table in these wintry months. FanTASTIC food and great coffee!

    If you don't want to wait, get takeaway & eat in the garden. There r stands in the garden as well selling some of the same menu items.

    If eating in, put your name down first as you will be waiting up to 45mins. Then grab a coffee sit in the garden and chillax to the beats

    Ladies, leave your name at the door for the 45 min wait and then go to the excellent Bendon shop next door for discounts on Bendon lingerie and Elle Macpherson intimates!

    Great place, but we went on a very hot day and there is absolutely no air conditioning, so be warned it gets very hot on a warm day.
