Ordered pancakes which came with berry compote and vanilla bean ice cream. Pancakes were very dry, over cooked. Very disappointing. Also don’t understand why wouldn’t have All day breakfast menu!

Fantastic food in a relaxed atmosphere. The restaurant is across the road from the Samford Museum, and a large park for the kids. And next door is The Store of Requirement (for any Harry Potter fans).

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.
