Discovered this little gem on TripAdvisor on our way to Austin. It's a little off the beaten path of what is I35, but so worth the trip. As locals to the DFW area, it would be worth making a short day trip over for lunch....More

We had gone here based on reviews of others & were not disappointed! The grounds are also very unique, with shops and a working blacksmith & wood working shop. It's off the beaten path, but worth the drive.

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.
