Having opened their doors to the public in late 2014, The Farmer’s Daughter Kitchen is Hillcrest’s ‘newest kid on the block’. The ethos of the authentic country cafe is to provide customers with farm-grown, local soul foods that are prepared by ‘real farmer’s daughters’.
This eatery provides an array of delectable food goods, but their specialities lie in their harvest platters, slow-cooked meals, and delectable baked goods that are available from the bakery. For the late-riser who is unwilling to skimp out on the most important meal of the day, The Farmer’s Daughter Kitchen's set menu provides a varied selection of ‘Brunch Meals’.
Diners looking for a signature breakfast meal should opt for the ‘Daughter’s Benedict', a sweetcorn and a zucchini fritter layered with either gypsy ham or salmon, poached eggs, hollandaise sauce, and finished off with rocket. ‘Ladies Who Lunch Favourite’ is a recommended lunchtime dish. It comes with a slice of black cherry and brie tart, finished off with goat’s cheese and served with a house salad.
While a popular eatery to Midland’s Meander locals, what makes The Farmer’s Daughter Kitchen even more unique is that it also functions as a catering business. If you’re looking to host an intimate event or wedding, the eatery will cater to your every whim.
While the food is prepared with love, care and attention to detail, diners will also enjoy the homey ambience of The Farmer’s Daughter Kitchen. Functioning as a ‘home away from home’, the interior is designed in a quirky fashion emulating the inside of a ‘Marigold Hotel’. Diners can relax on mismatched barstools at the bar area, and be enthralled by the vibrant colour scheme of the restaurant.
