Now open! Acre Artarmon farm food Eco Hub opens its doors

Acre Artarmon Eco hub

The hottest new dining destination on the lower North Shore is finally open! Acre Artarmon is a stunning farm-food inspired bakery, café, bar restaurant and greenhouse-style space, and it’s now open! Finally we are able to explore the 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 is open! Will it be a table amongst the hydroponics, under the terrace pergola or perhaps nestled in a restaurant booth? Or will you swing by for freshly churned gelato, a brew and and a bunch of flaky house-baked treats? Maybe enjoy mid-week brunch (best in the new plant-filled atrium cafe)?

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.
