We discovered this place through a friend two weeks ago. Went on a weekend morning and it was lovely with a large shaded sandpit, outdoor seating (with cool blowers thankfully!) and a cafe that opened at 11am. Plenty of space set amidst lush greenery and a natural farm setting where the cafe/ restaurant grows their own produce. There was also a little kids boutique Tinydipity that sold a selection of clothes, accessories, toys.
Brunch was great! Serving up the usual breakfast suspects (Eggs Benny, pancakes, toast and sandwiches, lattes, cold-pressed juices etc), but all the ingredients used were fresh – we felt like we had discovered a place we wanted to bring our friends back to. I’ll let the photos do the talking.
Open Farm Commmunity is at 130E Minden Road, Dempsey Village
Achievement unlocked! It’s his first time stepping willingly on to sand. The last few times we went on beach vacations, it was a real challenge getting him comfortable with the texture between his toes. He would cry and want to be picked up!
Verdict: We love it and will be back next week! Note the indoor restaurant closes from 3-6pm and the outdoor cafe doesn’t serve food. They are brand new and still building a children’s playground which will come up next to the sandpit. It does get crowded, so do make a booking if you’re going on a weekend for brunch or lunch.
