There is one main cafe on site called Truffles Through Cafe, they do have a cafe in the play barn and other snack stations dotted around. They offer your typical menu, offering locally produced meat and produce. I would say that their food is reasonably priced and of good quality.

They cook everything in front of you so if you have a larger order you should expect to wait five to ten minutes for the team to prep and cook your order. I was a personal fan of their automatic espresso machine, which made amazing coffees :)
