Acre Artarmon is a stunning farm-food inspired bakery, café, bar restaurant and greenhouse-style space, set to open in September. Set within sprawling indoor and outdoor productive gardens, adjacent to HomeHQ Artarmon, the open-air oasis encourages guests to wander through, touching, smelling and viewing the growing produce.
Acre Artarmon’s fresh herbs, flowers and fruit (grown onsite) will be used to produce delicious artisan bakery products; feature in café, restaurant, weddings & events menus; and used in homemade pizzas, garden-inspired cocktails and friendly beverages.
Acre Artarmon aims to engage, educate and inspire people to talk about sustainability through offering unique experiences from guided tours, chefs’ demonstrations, long table lunches, meet-the-maker tastings, twilight gardening, produce markets, kids programs and more.

Run by the team behind acre Eatery (Camperdown) and acre farm & eatery (Melbourne), the Artarmon venue is designed by Emilie Delalande of Etic, the interior designer behind Barangaroo House, and ex-team leader at Akin Atelier for Coogee Pavilion.
