Flour Drum Garden

Indoor & Outdoor Bliss

Our al-fresco seated garden is pet friendly and adorned with hundreds of rare plants, seasonal flowers, bonsai trees and giant succulents. Inside the cafe’s spacious dining room, the seating is set along a 10 metre wall mural by one of Australia’s most iconic and infamous street artists Scott Marsh. At the entrance coffee and takeaway area, the space is filled with daily baked goods, cakes, cookies and preserves made by chef/co-owner John Ageletos, aka @themoonlightbaker.

Our Pet Friendly Garden is very popular with the locals on the weekends. We highly recommend that you book your table in advance.
