The Flying Nun Cafe in Samford

The Cafe

The cafe building is unique and consists of two buildings set on open decks overlooking a rainforest garden. The main building started out as a Methodist church, then became a Uniting Church. The renovated structure features stained glass windows salvaged from another church and original timber floors.

The building in the middle of the Cafe is called “The Nun”. It was originally commissioned by the Brisbane City Council as a movable shelter for funerals at Mt Gravatt Cemetery.

Enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner at the Flying Nun Cafe in Samford.
