24 Mar Yellowwood Cafe – family farmyard fun
Yellowwood Cafe is a beautiful coffee shop and restaurant situated in the heart of Howick, on the historic Fairfell farm. The charming stone homestead that houses the restaurant is the original farmhouse built in 1870. The setting is idyllic with rolling fields, farmyard animals and wonderful views of the Howick Falls, providing a majestic backdrop for a relaxed meal out.
Yellowwood is the perfect spot for a family lunch with their large jungle gyms and farmyard friends that are sure to excite the kiddies, keeping them entertained for hours. The animals at Fairfell are part of the character of the place with miniature horses, Dexter cattle, pot belly pigs, miniature goats and donkeys as well as guinae pigs, rabbits and bantam chickens. Over lunch times on Sundays they also offer pony rides to their little guests.
Their menu is all about traditional pub style fare including farmhouse breakfasts, pies, burgers, trammezzinis, pastas, grills, oxtail, lamb shank and more. Their menu caters for various tastes and appetites as well as a selection of options for the kiddies. Their weekly tea time treats include a spicy carrot cake, a rich chocolate cake and fresh pancakes. On the weekends they have an a la carte menu consisting of curries, roasts and various daily specials.
The owners encourage their guests to take a walk around the estate and enjoy the beauty of their property. So be sure to gather up the family and head on over to Yellowwood Cafe to explore their beautiful estate. It promises to be a fun, relaxing day out for all.
