Kettle & Grain

Breakfast... Lunch... Homemade Cakes... Coffee!

Where do we start... Ben and myself are sad but happy to let our beautiful customers know that Sunday 10th September will be our last day at Kettle & Grain Cafe... The wonderful new owners will take over in the weeks to come and we wish them all the best with our "first baby"! 

Three years on and we could not be prouder of what we have achieved in that time, setting up a new business in Young that has become popular with locals and travellers alike. Creating a product that has gained us two "Certificates of Excellence" from TripAdvisor has been no mean feat; lots of blood, sweat and tears have been had! Most of all we couldn't achieve what we have without our amazing staff, amazing customers, amazing suppliers and amazing families. 

Please come and visit us over the next week, we would love to see you and thank you for your love and support (more tears to be had!) You can follow our Baby story on Instagram at @chickan24 #hurthgyebaby2017

This wonderfully supported established business is looking for a new owner/s.

SURPRISE! The end of 2017 is bringing our first baby to our family! This has meant we have needed to reflect on things a little and have decided to offer Kettle & Grain up for sale. We know that with the new addition we would not be able to put 100% into the business and juggle things at home too. We have absolutely loved starting our own cafe/restaurant and building it up into what it is today, with a loyal customer base, a cult following on social media, a reputation for excellent service, freshly prepared and honest food, seriously good ONA coffee and an amazing venue! We really thank everyone for the amazing support that has been shown to us. We are hoping there is someone who would like to continue to build on this business that has also established a night trade following on Friday and Saturday evenings.

An event not to be missed! Young Regional School of Music and Kettle & Grain present "The String Contingent"- a sound of three unique performers/composers combined, describing their vibe as New Acoustic. Holly Downes on Double Bass, Chris Stone on Violin and Graham McLeod on Guitar. Tickets are $35pp which includes dinner (wood-fired pizza) and TSC performance (available from Kettle & Grain and YRSM).


Renowned acoustic chamber-folk trio The String Contingent have developed their sound over four albums in five years, to reach β€˜...the upper echelon of instrumental exploration, arrangement, composition and performance...’ (Tony Hillier, Rhythms Magazine). Their music β€œ...brings to mind the bluegrass records of Yo-Yo Ma and Edgar Meyer. Early Scottish influences are also found, but strongest is an art-music influence with elements of Bach, Kronos Quartet and sometimes a splash of Philip Glass...they are incredibly skilled...” (Ulf Torstensson, Lira Magazine). 

Chris, Holly and Graham combine their diverse musical backgrounds in celtic, classical, jazz and pop into melodic, evocative, exciting and poignant musical discussions or β€˜trialogues’. In their live show, musical precision, refinement and beauty are balanced with viscera energy and drive, making for performances that speak directly to the heart and captivate the mind.
