About Farmhouse Cafe & Bakery
FarmHouse Café was a concept that was the brain child of my wife and my mother-in-law. My wife’s family has been in the restaurant business there entire lives and started in Huntsville with the Café Texan. From there they went on to open a Mexican restaurant named Casa Tomas and had several over those, beginning in 1977 till 2003 here in Huntsville. That is where I was lucky enough to meet my wife while working a summer job there while attending Sam Houston State University. I fell in love with her and eventually fell in love with the restaurant business as well. When we sold Casa Tomas, my wife and I had been running the Huntsville location since 1993 and we were not exactly sure what we would do. With the help of Ed Sandhop, Gibbs Brothers and great creative ideas from Ginny Renfro and my wife Karen, we came up with the concept of FarmHouse Café. We wanted down home southern cooking, known as comfort food. We wanted a nice, but casual “hole in the wall” place that served quality down home cooking with great atmosphere and service. Our staff is composed of a high percentage of college students from Sam Houston State and we are glad to be Bearkat Alum. From my father-in-law, my wife and myself along with all three of my kids. We are all proud to be called a Bearkat.
Our philosophy is to take care of the customer like you were invited to someone’s house for lunch or dinner. We want you to look forward to coming here and take every effort in making sure that you enjoy everything that you order. From the broccoli cornbread and rolls, to the blue plate special of the day, to the daily made homemade pies and cakes to top off your experience. And don’t forget the sweet tea!!!
