Cafe Homestead is an amazing place. It's great home style cooking with a Texas flair. Everything here is good, from burgers to tacos to salad to their sometimes unorthodox soups. There's usually a wait on weekends, so go early. But the wait isn't too big...More

I'm sorry. We do not. However, we do offer call ahead seating. If you call a half hour or so before you come and we are on a wait, we will place you on our wait list. Otherwise, seating is first come, first serve.

Cafe Homestead serves deliciously healthful food in the unique setting of a traditional craft village in our sustainable, organic farming community. We offer grass-fed beef; fresh buns, bread and rolls baked daily from whole-grain flour by Artisan Oven; cheeses produced by our community’s internationally award-winning Brazos Valley Cheese company; and other fine foods, including our all-natural, delectable ice cream. Our fruit and vegetables are always fresh, and we strive to provide locally grown produce. Begun in 1994 as a small deli, Cafe Homestead has grown to become a restaurant serving over 45,000 guests a year and is widely known for its menu of traditional Texan, Mediterranean and specialty cuisines. Before or after enjoying a relaxing meal served by friendly people from our farm community, visit our craft shops, Gift Barn and Model Homestead and take a Hayride to our scenic overlook.
