It's a buzz getting lots of feedback from all our customers and a genuine thrill when we get a mention in the mainstream press. We've put together some of our favourites here. Of course - we're biased but if you're still not convinced you can also check out Zomato. If you have something to say we'd appreciate you letting us know or contributing to the review sites. Much appreciated. Pip & Tom.

Pip & Tom Hay, Owners & Operators of the Farm Cafe, Melbourne.

The Farm Cafe started as a coffee machine in the boot of owners Pip and Tom Hay’s car. Now it’s an idyllic country-in-the-city retreat where customers tuck into wholesome dishes such as the Super Salad.

This pie was incredible! Look at that golden crust! The pastry was gorgeous... The filling was gorgeous... I didn’t even need the relish as the pie tasted so good! However, the relish also tasted amazing so I had to eat that too. The salads were also fantastic! I can’t wait to return to The Farm Cafe.

From a humble offering of coffee and scones on a trestle table, The Farm Cafe at the Collingwood Children’s Farm is now one of the busiest outdoor cafes in Melbourne. We chat to owners Pip and Tom Hay about how it happened.

Great news for family with kids, this place is perfect for you. After or before your lunch, you can visit the farm to play the animals and the farmer markets around the corner. Another plus point is they provide kids menu.

Everything on the plate was fresh and so well balanced. I loved eating a bit of juicy apple with a forkful of cheddar and ham. I fell in love with the dish instantly.
