We can’t rave enough about this delectable slow food restaurant in the quaint hinterland town of Pomona. Just 30 minutes drive inland from Noosa Heads, a scenic journey through lush green forests, you almost don’t need the coffee to wake you up (almost)!
Where to sit? So much choice!
When you arrive you are greeted by friendly accomodating staff and a choice of areas to sit. The tranquil feel inside is influenced by white walls, awash with greenery. Choose to sit at the large cable drum style table, complete with a tree planted in the centre; venture out the back to the cute little courtyard with hammock-like seats or even the alleyway which is hidden away from the street.
Fun for all the family.
If you have children, the Village Kitchen is a real find! Only parents will know how hard it is to entertain children when you sit down to eat in public, but here it’s easy; behind the courtyard is a huge shed filled with toys and astroturf on the floor!!! It’s simply awesome!!!!!
Promoting sustainability all the way!
This delightful eatery is all about quality and sustainability, sourcing all of its produce locally according to the season. The ingredients used are grown and raised locally; they compost all food scraps, and all the packaging is either biodegradable or compostable. The coffee is Padre roasted here in Noosa, the pork is from Kingaroy, the fish from Tin Can Bay, eggs from Bunya Grove Forage Farm, the honey is from the one, and only beautiful Pomona and the list goes on.
So much flavour….
The high standard of nutritious fare on offer is really apparent in the flavour, making it hard to choose from the delicious options on the menu. We chose the Eggs Benedict, which is quite possibly the best Eggs Benny we’ve had. The eggs were soft poached to perfection, served with a thick slice of Walters Organic Sourdough on a bed of wilted spinach and covered in a secret recipe hollandaise sauce. We also chose French Toast, and again this was right up there as one of the best. It was like a giant doughnut on a plate!!! Made with Pomona Brioche, topped with ice cream, seasonal fruit, candied nuts, house coulis and unicorn breath. Is your mouth watering yet?! The presentation was food for the eyes! There’s a kids menu with equally lovely miniature treats, making this place an all-around family favourite.
Morning, Noon and Night
Typically the Village Kitchen is open for breakfast, brunch and dinner. There is a bar menu serving sides like Chilli Poppers, Salt and Pepper Squid or something more substantial like Loaded Campfire Spuds. Treat yourself to a beer from the tap locally brewed in Eumundi or Terella, just down the road at North Arm.
We highly recommend a drive out to the Village Kitchen, it’s an unexpected find and will not disappoint.
