Down a character-filled street in Palmwoods, you will find a delicious eatery which advocates organic and local produce and walks the talk on reducing waste. (Roughly one cup of waste to landfill per day.) 

Homegrown Café, on the corner of The Lane in Little Main Street is a welcoming hub for foodies, coffee lovers, and those in search of a super smoothie or divine dessert.

The breakfast menu is varied with selections such as eggs in spiced beans with goats cheese and coriander; mushrooms and avocado on sourdough with dill and lime, or with their current special, Summer Lemon Myrtle Panna Cotta (pictured) – with, mint, mango, blueberry, riberries in their syrup and house-made granola with quinoa, millet, amaranth, coconut and almond flakes. 

Lunch runs from midday and there is always an inviting list on the Specials Menu, from asparagus and pea ravioli with brown butter, mint and parmesan, to chicken focaccia with roasted eggplant, greens and yoghurt.

Owner Sarah Wright and her team opened the café doors seven years ago, and its loyal following has grown steadily since, with customers enjoying the rustic charm of the interior and the spacious and shady seating of the relaxed garden or the lane (strung with fairy lights for seasonal dinners or special events).

Homegrown is firmly entrenched as part of the community and supports local businesses, artists and growers – so for a breakfast or lunch made with love or a Tin Shed coffee (made locally of course), this has to be a perfect pit-stop.

Once you’ve been, you’ll keep going back!
