Luther Restaurant Opens Second Location at Oklahoma History Center

OKLAHOMA CITY — The Oklahoma History Center (OHC) is pleased to announce the opening of its new in-house restaurant, Farmstead Cafe at OHC. Patrons may be familiar with its parent restaurant in Luther, Farmstead Cafe at 116 S. Main, which is a Made in Oklahoma location that features locally sourced products and scratch-made menu favorites like biscuits and gravy for breakfast, house-made chicken salad for lunch and more.

Matthew Winton tells the board of the Oklahoma Historical Society about the restaurant and building in Luther.

Located on the third floor of the OHC with a stunning view of the Oklahoma State Capitol, Farmstead Cafe at OHC draws its baked goods from the Luther location and staff including gluten-friendly items. In addition, soups, salads, sandwiches and daily specials will be featured. Farmstead also highlights local coffee roasters including Eote, Leap and Flatlander. The museum cafe is open from 10 am – 2 pm, Monday–Saturday.

The cafe is accessible to the public as well as museum guests and has ample parking, making it a great choice for lunch with a view. Similar to the original location in Luther, the space at Farmstead Cafe is available for events, and catering.  

Bakery items are prepared from Farmstead’s Luther bakery.

“We thank our new friends at the Oklahoma History Center for this great opportunity. Our business has been built on a foundation of how we approach work, treat our staff and give our loyalty to our local producers. Our growing list of guests come from all across the Oklahoma City metroplex, and we are grateful and excited to extend that model to our new location,” said Matthew Winton, owner of Farmstead Cafe and All Hat Cattle Company.

The original Farmstead Cafe opened in Luther in 2016 in a completely restored two-story building constructed in 1897 on Luther’s Main Street. In addition to the restaurant, the Luther building also has office space and studio space for private gatherings and catering.

Opening day at the Farmstead Cafe at OHC featured a visit from State Rep. Mike Osburn. (Pictured Winton, Chris Adair, Oklahoma Christian University, Dawn Shelton and Rep. Osburn).

Both locations are located close to Route 66 in Luther and the Oklahoma History Center, making the Mother Road a natural talking point with travelers and explorers who visit. Both locations feature art from local artists, on display or for sale, including Luther’s Lindy Jerlow.

Luther fans of the restaurant will note the slight name change to Farmstead Cafe that works for both locations. The new name also includes a new logo that highlights “Star 46,” Oklahoma’s first flag when it became the 46th state in the union. The Luther location’s menu and hours remain the same, Tuesday – Saturday from 7 am – 2 pm; and also dinner hours on Thursday and Friday from 5 – 8 pm. Cooking demonstrations and other specials events are being planned for both locations.
