Brisbane northside locals will soon have a new watering hole in Albany Creek when the cafe, White Horse Ranch, starts serving customers from breakfast to dinner.



Found at the corner of Ferguson Street, the location of White Horse Ranch is a familiar foodie spot. It was once the home of the burger joint Fritzenberger and The Coffee Club from years ago.

Now the cafe owners, Amy Hinschen and Kyle Steel, hope that their new venture will become an amazing place for families and friends to meet up, catch up, dine and hang around with their dogs. 

The partners chose the name White Horse Ranch because it reflects the “feel and style” they’ve wanted for their cafe with its white beams, gorgeous indoor landscape mural and large outdoor space bringing all that laidback vibe.

“It’s great to finally see something a little unique and different from the usual cafes on offer around the area,” a local said. “Well done guys for understanding what we’ve been missing out here in the Northern suburbs! Looking forward to a lovely change of scenery from the home office!” 

The cafe also has a function area and homeware section for merchandise that will be regularly curated by the pair. They are also behind Vend, the Virginia warehouse for small businesses with fantastic artisanal finds, including heaps of indoor plants. 



Amy and Kyle plan to open White Horse Ranch in late January, which will provide 10 new jobs for locals. The menu hasn’t been unveiled but the partners promised there will be vegan options.
