I had the lunch special with soup (tomato with pasta) and an Italian sandwich. Both were sooo good. Then I had the pleasure of walking around the grounds. Great food, service, and lovely peaceful atmosphere!

This quaint Cafe never disappoints me. The entire staff is always professional, kind, and caring and the food is excellent. Visiting this surprise down a well kept road in the country is well worth the five mile drive out of Waco!

Cafe Homestead will be closing at 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 16th. See website for details. Cafe Homestead serves deliciously healthful food in the unique setting of a traditional craft village in our sustainable, organic farming community. We offer grass-fed beef; fresh buns, bread and rolls baked daily from whole-grain flour by Artisan Oven; cheeses produced by our community’s internationally award-winning Brazos Valley Cheese company; and other fine foods, including our all-natural, delectable ice cream. Our fruit and vegetables are always fresh, and we strive to provide locally grown produce. Begun in 1994 as a small deli, Cafe Homestead has grown to become a restaurant serving over 45,000 guests a year and is widely known for its menu of traditional Texan, Mediterranean and specialty cuisines. Before or after enjoying a relaxing meal served by friendly people from our farm community, visit our craft shops, Gift Barn and Model Homestead and take a Hayride to our scenic overlook.
