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.
The setting is quite charming in the small rural suburb of Samford, however the food was certainly very disappointing.
The fallout was missing in a menu that could have been a delight. Need to improve considerable before I would return.
We had come over for a bush walk and had read lots of good reviews about this place. When we got here, I opened up TA to find that recently the reviews haven't been so great and that maybe the place had changed owners. Keeping...in mind we were here at 10.30am on a Thursday, service was good and the food came out very fast. Everything was tasty, I couldn't complain. I've never been here before the owners changed, but I don't think this place deserves the previous bad reviews from what we experienced today. The area is beautiful and the Harry Potter shop next door was cool.More
Always a favourite in the past, but reminded of long waits for food. Today is sadly the last time I will go to the Flying Nun. Wanting to take a special friend to somewhere special. Instead we walked out after an hour & 25 minutes...after arriving (5 minutes early) for our booked table. We ordered after we had been seated for 10 minutes. I overheard the consierge say 5 minutes later to prospective walkie ns that there was a 40 minute wait on food. They were reasonably busy - not as busy as I have seen. No explanation or heads up given to us. I politely enquired after 1 hour where our food was to be offered an apology & free coffee & cake. Hunger took over & we left to seek quick food in the village. Not good enough.More
I was really looking forward to try the food here, as it seemed like such a fun and cute place! I ordered their 'Corn fritters', which was one of their specialties...but it was basically a pancake with some corn in. And they tasted defrosted. It...wasn't presented well, and for $21 - I felt sad! Such a shame as the staff were lovely, but I wont be eating there again sadly.More
The food here is average when it has the potential to be something really special. Their service was not committed and a waitress spilled my son’s chips on the table because she was careless putting his plate down.
Three orders for hot drinks; two out three orders bungled. Ordered 1/2 strength coffee in a cup and double shot in a mug. Young female ‘barista’ mixed up the order. Replaced one of the drinks with no apology. Surly attitude. Very quiet afternoon with few...customers, so work load was not an excuse!More
I’ve been coming to this cafe for a long time. It definitely went downhill when it changed owners, but it was still nice.
I went there Saturday (29/05) and had the worst food I’ve ever had from a cafe, and that’s not something I say...lightly.
First was a 45 minute wait for pancakes and big breakfast.. not a huge deal if the food is okay. Weren’t very busy either so unsure why a huge wait, but once again not a huge deal.
When the food came out the pancakes were stone cold and the breakfast was also cold. The bread was so stale that it could barely be cut through and the chipolata sausages (included in the big breakfast) didn’t even come out with the meal.
