This Texas Restaurant Way Out In The Boonies Is A Deliciously Fun Place To Have A Meal
Quality ingredients can take a meal from ordinary to exquisite, and this eatery is a prime example. Cafe Homestead is a farm restaurant in Waco that prioritizes simplicity and freshness over everything.
Hiding on a rarely traveled country road in Waco is Homestead Heritage, an agrarian community whose values involve simplicity, sustainability, cooperation, and service. It's a village frozen in time, keeping alive the long-abandoned practices of slow living and togetherness.
On the property is Cafe Homestead, a rustic eatery featuring classic down-home meals crafted with fresh, real food ingredients. From brunch to dinner, enjoy nostalgic dishes that taste just like childhood.
Inside, the atmosphere is just as you'd expect: quaint and homey. High, A-frame ceilings and mahogany panelling foster an overwhelming sense of peace.
Nothing quite compares to the warmth and coziness of a homemade breakfast. Farm-fresh eggs make cloudlike pancakes, with thick, local bacon serving as a perfect accompaniment. And we'd be remiss not to mention that hearty smear of butter on top.
Only the finest grass-fed beef is used in creation of succulent, mouthwatering burgers. Paired with homemade buns and raw cheese, it's a flavor explosion guaranteed to leave your taste buds begging for more.
Just because the food is good for you doesn't mean diners can't enjoy dessert. Flour is ground on-site for use in a variety of decadent cakes; ice cream made with fresh milk. One bite and you'll never want a store bought treat again.
Make sure to check out all the shops before heading out. Pictured is a gift shop with hundreds of handcrafted items like soap, wooden bowls, quilts, and so much more. You'll also see weaving, blacksmithing, pottery, and a gristmill, among other buildings home to sacred operations.
Address: 608 Dry Creek Road, Waco, TX 76705. Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday-Saturday.
