Welcome to the
The Barn Café is found at the centre of Darling Buds Of May and is the beating heart of all that is here. A new boutique café designed to tie in the experience of all that is here through food, drink, and sharing.
Our homemade food and drinks menu is freshly prepared and can cater to any requirement. Whether you are looking to catch up with friends over a coffee and cake, re-energizing with a filling lunch after a busy morning looking through the plant nursery, or would like to take a smoothie and sandwich over to the dog paddock, we are here for you.
We design our menu as an extension of our home kitchens. Our favourite family dishes served throughout the day with the added feature of a custom made sandwiches and salads counter and also a selection of home-baked cakes and brownies so you can sink your teeth into exactly what you want. Indulge in a range of hot and cold drinks including smoothies, loose leaf teas including herbals, and all the barista coffee varieties made with our state of the art La Spaziale coffee machine.
Our speciality food item is our homemade samosas. Available vegan and gluten free and with a choice of fillings it is the perfect secret family recipe in a triangular package to look after you when you didn’t even realize how much you needed it.
We cater to most dietary requirements and stock a selection of vegan, gluten free and sugar free products.
We believe in our motto ‘Enjoy the Fruits of Life’ and feel as though this can only become a real experience for our customers and team if humans, plants, and animals are able to be in harmony with the source of this. Nature. Therefore, our vegetables and products are organic where possible and our meat and eggs are sourced from line caught, free range, battery cage free animals.

There is a choice of 3 seating areas. Warm up on a sofa near the log burner at the indoor seating area of the café where you will find a selection of furniture from the Community Furniture Project, enjoy the outdoors in the Tropical Tunnel or the Sun Garden. Wherever you sit you will be immersed in a rejuvenating and unique café experience surrounded by plants. We are passionate about coffee and have created our own blended Darling Buds Of May coffee mix which has been developed to encapsulate the experience that we have had here – rich, smooth, full of joy, with fruity and earthy tones.
