Even on a hot day this cafe buzzes! The menu is inventive & the raspberry and lychee muddle was an icy and refreshing surprise. If you are planning a visit, it is probably worth making a booking.

Dine inside Samford's old Uniting Church - a converted rainforest cafe garden with colourful stained glass windows, mosaics and sculptures galore. Taste chef's seasonal menu of produce from the veggie patch out back washed down with wine and craft beers. There's also sweets such as unique cordials, syrups and tea for sale.
