Mona Vale Homestead & Pantry

It’s hard to imagine a more perfect setting than Mona Vale to feed the soul and the taste buds, with its heady combination of stunning gardens, historic homestead and a pantry of enticing treats.
The Homestead, with a backdrop that evokes a decadent glamour, hosts weddings and special occasions upstairs, while downstairs Mona Vale Pantry diners enjoy views of the gardens and the tranquil Avon River while savouring an appealing all-day menu based on serving tasty, locally sourced produce. The piece de resistance, however, is the High Tea menu: three different options promise indulgence tailored to your wishes.
