This Barn Owl Cafe has much more that meets the eye and it is going to be the location of your next catchup with little buddies. Set at the entrance of a blueberry U-pick in Silvan, the shed is a cafe with great family friendly features.
Outside is a wall full of toys and books to entertain and there is stacks of space for kids to explore within the fully enclosed courtyard. The gang has also acquired themselves a JUMPING CASTLE for the kids to really get stuck into. There is so much room for prams too with picnic seating both undercover and in the sunshine.
Food is awesome and super fresh. You just have to try the smashed pumpkin and grab a kids picnic box - perfect for sharing with both the 4 and 1 year old. All is locally sourced (like down the road from the Carter Bros) plus lots of produce comes from the site itself including the FRESHEST eggs from the chickens in the pen right out the door.
What also makes this a family friendly gem - especially in the right season - is the on site U-pick! Blueberries are the number one produce at this farm and you could fill a bucket with these tiny blue treasures. There is an entry fee to pick, but you can taste as much as you wish while collect!
Mamma's special mention: There is plenty on the shelves inside the cafe as well with berries, honey, tea and coffee all for sale too!
