Mona Vale Homestead

It’s hard to imagine a more perfect setting than Mona Vale Homestead – it feeds the soul and the taste-buds – with its combination of stunning gardens, a serene river setting and the restaurant’s delightful menu offerings. The Homestead offers
a dog-friendly patio and is the perfect place to drop in for weekend brunch, or a bite to eat from the cabinet, or to host a wedding or private
dinner party.

Diners can enjoy views of the gardens and the Avon River while savouring an appealing all-day menu based on serving tasty, locally sourced produce.

The pièce de résistance is the High Tea menu, which is the signature dish. It is available all day and can be catered to any cultural or dietary requirement. The High Tea menu is a selection of nine sweet or savoury items that vary but may include blueberry tart, a macaroon of the day, Blood Orange and Eucalyptus Tart, Streusel Choux, Cheeseball Oatcake, Lamb Shank Pie, Buttermilk scone with conserve and Chantilly cream and finger sandwiches. Enjoy the menu with your choice of espresso coffees or the Dilmah Vivid range of tea. Alternatively, for those on the go, they offer takeaways from the cabinet.

Weekends are particularly popular, with the Homestead brunch menu offering traditional favourites of eggs benedict, smashed avocado and Akaroa Salmon.

Mona Vale Homestead is fully licensed and open 9am to 3pm Wednesday to Sunday during the summer months or Friday to Sunday during the winter months.
