The Fat Cow Food Co

The Fat Cow Food Co.

The Fat Cow is a relaxed café, food store and catering business, located in the picturesque town of Timboon. It has established itself as a meeting place for locals and tourists alike. The ethos of the food is simple – it’s wholesome, it’s fresh and it’s all made here!

We pride ourselves on only using quality ingredients and food items are cooked daily on the premises. Our breakfast and lunch menus list the favourites, such as the Fat Cow pies, vegie frittata and burgers, whilst our ever-changing specials board lists seasonal offerings and modern flavour combinations.

Timboon is a vibrant community with a diverse range of local producers. We do our best to support the regional suppliers by using their quality ingredients, and where possible, we offer our customers organic, free range and sustainable food products. Whilst exploring the region of Timboon and the 12 Apostles Gourmet Trail, be sure to pop in to the Fat Cow and say Hi!


We like to drink good coffee, so that's what we serve at the Fat Cow.

As well as the usual suspects, there’s freshly brewed Prana Chai and Tea & Scandal blends on the menu. We are pouring a selection of Victorian wines, beer and cider or there’s cold drinks, fresh juices and milkshakes.

The Fat Cow is open for breakfast, lunch, coffee & cake, Monday to Friday. Pull up a chair at the timber communal table, grab a stool at the window bench or fill a table with your family and friends. You’re welcome to join us anytime, but we encourage you to make a booking for large groups. Please contact us on 5598 3177.


All of our menu items are available to takeaway or take home. There are a range of options to heat and serve, such as arancini balls, curry and the famous Fat Cow family pies.

We also offer a range of take home goods from the quality producers that we feature on our menu, La Madre bread, Schultz Organic Dairy products, Prana Chai tea, Lana’s Garden Preserves, Mt Zero Olives and Timboon Honey. Other items from local craftspeople, second hand books and artworks are displayed and available to purchase.


The Fat Cow offers catering services in house and off site. Birthdays, weddings, corporate gatherings…give us a call to discuss availability and services.

For daytime, ranges of cold and hot options are available for morning tea, lunch and afternoon tea catering. Delivery to the site or local businesses is available. In the evening, we can cater for functions at your chosen venue or the Fat Cow venue is available for relaxed gatherings, of up to fifty guests. Call us for a listing of our current finger food and function menus, or allow us to tailor a menu to your requirements and budget.

Delicious, fresh and friendly

Next time we are visiting the 12 rocks we will make the detour for breakfast. This is probably the best place in the Timboon/Port Campbell area. We love what you are doing (cool retro high hair too). Thanks. - Grafton H

LOVEEEEEEEEE The big fat cow

An un-assuming place from the outside. We didn't expect much from a cafe in the middle nowhere. The motel we stayed at the night before recommend this place, and boy were they right. Probably the best pie I have ever eaten. Just so fresh. - Lewie P

Superb food!

It might be a little way off the beaten path, but we enjoyed lunch so much that we bought dinner as a take-away as well. Fantastic food, fresh and tasty. And the proprietors were friendly and welcoming as well. - WestAussie_54

An Asian twist for stopover lunch

Our party of 13 stopped over at The Fat Cow for lunch on our Great Ocean Road trip. A delightful place serving a mix of pies, burgers, pastries, and some Asian food. Overall, a great experiences when wrapped with the friendly service of the owner. - Phoon KH
