Long Yard Larder

    This unassuming and relaxed pet-friendly café opposite John Scott Park, Samford, is quickly establishing itself as a popular, new local family meeting place on the Samford dining scene.

    The Samford café’s friendly customer service and warm wood-panelled surrounds, pared back décor and minimalist vibes make for a relaxed family-friendly atmosphere.

    Open for breakfast, lunch and late afternoon dining. You can pop past anytime during the day from 7:30am for coffee (using Coffee Supreme beans) or a takeaway meal. If you’ve more time to spare, take a seat to dine al fresco or indoors at one of the tables or pull up a window stool instead to watch the foot traffic.

    A Sensational Variety of Meals, Treats & Desserts

    The Long Yard Larder’s gourmet menu offerings, along with its selection of fresh & wholesome sandwiches, bagels, pastries, and fine Australian cheeses & cured meats, gives you plenty of choice when it comes to nibbles, snacks, light meals, and artisan dishes. While the exquisite gelato and sorbet range is the perfect melt-in-your-mouth treat for all ages.

    Vegetarian and gluten free Samford dining options are also available.
