Discover Broke’s magically rustic food & retail experience
The unassuming frontage of Magoony’s Coffee House in Broke invites you in for a charmingly rustic café and retail experience.
The quintessentially Aussie country café and retail space is located within the old Broke service station on Singleton Street. Having opened in September 2022, the past eight months have seen Magoony’s Coffee House become a very welcome addition to Broke’s wine region.
Brought to us by the O’Toole family; Mum (Melissa) and Dad (Paul) of Motty’s Farm Cuisine, and their son (Ryan) - Margan Restaurant-trained pastry chef.
“Mum and Dad know the owner of the building quite well. Basically, they knew the space was vacant and pitched the idea to the owners and they loved it. So, we all just jumped in and here we are,” Ryan shared.
Since opening its doors, the venue has become a haunt for both locals and those passing through. With their traditional tasty recipes abundant with flavour and country flair, the family business invites you to settle in and indulge in their house-made pastries, cakes, and pies, whilst sipping on their delicious coffee.
The food offering is worth a novel in itself. With the trio all individually passionate about their culinary creations, the menu is filled with top-notch menu items including their standout Reuben Sandwich.
“It’s a huge hit. I’d never known much about Reuben sandwiches and then one day I had one in Newcastle, and it was life-changing. I wanted to make one but do it better and people are just loving it.”
Still wanting more from their food offering? Browse their collection of local condiments like olive oils, eggs, honey, and bread, or browse their selection of pre-made meals to take home to enjoy.
“I think offering a little more of that homemade, raw, local, untouched little products are definitely high on the cards.”
Once you’ve filled up on some Magoony’s foodie goods, wander next door through their antique emporium filled with local, loved, and old wares. Additionally, if you’re a lover of all things timber, check out Paul’s custom wooden furniture workshop; there are some absolute gems.
With cosy antique-filled corners dotted throughout, a corrugated iron fronted café counter, and rusty outdoor seating perfectly fitted for an outback café and antique space; Magoony’s Coffee House has been curated in a way that feels like it has always been here.
“Originally, Dad had thought about wanting to get back into opening an antique store. He had been doing it on and off over the past 15 years, but then when they pitched the idea to me, I jumped on board for the café side of things.”
With a name like Magoony’s Coffee House, you’ve got to ask the question – where did that come from?
“So, my childhood nickname was Roony Magoony. We were thinking of Roony, then Roony Magoony, then we just decided to go with Magoony’s Coffee House. It’s catchy and everyone asks about the name, so it's become a good conversation point plus it ties into our family business.”
With the launch of Magoony’s Coffee House in September, alongside the arrival of many young families moving to the area, we’re excited to see what the future for Broke has in store.
“In the ten years that I’ve been gone, so much has changed out here. There are so many more young families moving here and there’s nowhere relaxed and casual to go.”
With A Little Bit of Broke happening this weekend, Friday 5th May – Sunday 7th May, why not make the stop into Magoony’s Coffee House whilst you’re exploring the region’s already much-loved wine trail. Trust us, it will be worth the drive!
