Quirky

Don't be fooled by the boring exterior to this cafe. Inside it is quirky and very pleasant. There is an outdoor eating area with views of the Botanical Gardens. Enjoyed a lovely coffee here and shared a yummy raspberry clafoutis. Well worth a visit if you're in the gardens of Wombat Hill.

We came for brunch after a session at the bath house. It was highly recommended and had great reviews. Unfortunately our coffee was cold, and our breakfast pizza covered in a sweet smokey BBQ sauce which left a soggy pizza that tasted of nothing except BBQ sauce, not at all what I anticipated from the menu. The BLT was also... More

Oh Alla. You have done it again. We had the braised beans and chicken sausage. So flavour packed with fresh herbs and great oil and the salsa verde was so balanced. Loved the allpress coffee too. Staff and service fantastic.

Went there today (Boxing Day) - staff were very friendly and helpful, atmosphere was great. I had the salmon pizza - excellent and Zach had the breakfast pizza, which the chef was more than happy to do even though it was well after 12. The banana bread and little lemon meringue tarts were great. Always worth a short drive up... More

Arrived for a relaxing Monday lunch, found a seat in the courtyard and read the menu which suggested sandwiches, rolls and baguettes were in the display inside. I went in and saw two small items in the display so asked the girl behind the counter if there was anything else and was rudely asked 'what were you expecting?' And I... More

We like to sit out in the rear garden on a fine day. Under an umbrella, surrounded by fruits and vegetables. There's always something light and tasty on the menu...good coffee, too, and freshly squeezed juices. Good selection of sweets. Closed Tuesday & Wednesday. Breakfast & lunch only. Amex not accepted.

Was my first visit to Daylesford & this was by far one of my favourite spots. Lovely ambience, wonderful service, awesome food. Rest' design & food presentation's beautiful. They even sell cute wombat plush toys and I love how they have a corner with colouring pencils and papers for kids ( and adults ) to play around with. Definitely coming... More

My partner and I were in Daylesford recently and had the pleasure of being recommended this little gem. Great coffee they said and great coffee they were right. Probably one of the best coffee's I've had in a long time. This place is dog friendly as they allow your little loved ones access through a gate into the outside area.... More
