Wendell Falls, one of the largest master-planned communities in the Triangle, is launching a new restaurant concept TODAY in partnership with Patrick Cowden and Daniel Whittaker, the co-owners of the Pharmacy Café in downtown Raleigh. Located in the Wendell Falls Farmhouse, the Farmhouse Café will feature creative, seasonal dishes, local vendors and a community-focused atmosphere built on sustainable practices.
The Farmhouse Café will serve breakfast, lunch and a “social menu” for the evening comprised of shareable, small plates designed to be paired with a glass of wine or craft beer. Guests will be able to enjoy a wide list of beverages – almost all locally derived – including gourmet coffees, craft beers, wines and specialties like prosecco and kombucha on tap. Chef Patrick will also host food-related events at the Farmhouse, such as foodie dinners, crawfish boils and wine tastings.
Last week we got to sample some of the delicious food offerings, including smørrebrød, a southern style take on these typically open face sandwiches (a Danish rye delicacy). We sampled wine and locally made kombucha and new sparkling spirit beverage SERCY by the owner of Mother Earth Brewing, all of which the cafe will be offering.
The Farmhouse Café opens today and will be open for breakfast, lunch and dinner.
