LOCATION
At Gooromon Park in Hall – 10 minutes’ drive from Civic.

PROFILED BY DE GROOTS MEDIA
The aptly named Homestead Cafe evokes rich images of our past; the Edwardian bungalow seems the perfect place to step back into another century – the time and place of Banjo Paterson, or Clancy of the overflow. All this, and only a 10-minute drive from the middle of Canberra. Set on the sprawling Gooromon Park (which also hosts a riding school for those with equestrian inclinations), The Homestead Cafe serves up good, honest tucker for Friday lunches, as well as breakfast and lunch over the weekend. Enjoy expansive views from the main room and the deck across to the Brindabellas while sipping local drops; or take advantage of the gorgeously decorated private dining rooms, where one can enjoy The Homestead Cafe’s famous high tea.

The high tea, which is best enjoyed in the Edwardian parlour, kicks off with a glass of Champagne, followed by an ever-changing selection of the chef’s specials, both sweet and savoury. If you arrive early, order a delicious brekkie such as buttermilk pancakes or a full English breakfast with the lot. The conscience-free breakfast of a potato and spinach frittata is a welcome change from the standard breakfast menu of “anything with eggs”. The lunch menu is equally comforting. Try the daily soup special, straight from the hob, or tuck into the cold “rancher’s luncheon”: a delicious plate of cheese, cold cuts, crusty bread, salad and an assortment of pickles and relishes. For something a bit more hearty, The Homestead Cafe does a mean osso bucco, slow cooked in a generous dash of local red wine, and served on a light, creamy mash. The Homestead Cafe is perfect for a quick weekend recharge away from the daily grind of the capital.
