After many visits to Daylesford, I was introduced to this lovely cafe set amongst the botanical gardens in Daylesford. There is indoor and outdoor seating and the menu caters for all tastes. We did lunch and afternoon tea and were very impressed with the quality of the food and the service. I will definitely return on my next visit and... More

Beautiful setting in the midst of the Daylesford Botanical gardens, this cafe is a must for breakfast (they also do lunch and dinner) when visiting Daylesford . Lots of choice on the menu everything is fresh and beautifully presented. Outside and inside seating options better than eating in town. Recommended.

On a wild and rainy day we left Melbourne to take overseas visitors to somewhere enjoyable out of the wind and wet. Having been to Wombat Hill House once before and thoroughly enjoyed our meal on that occasion we had no hesitation in heading there again. We were fortunate enough to arrive as other groups were leaving so despite being... More

Thoroughly enjoyed our lunch - especially so on a lovely day sitting outside amongst the herb and vegetable gardens. Staff were great and meals delicious.

A great place for lunch or just an afternoon coffee, amazing food at a very reasonable price. Fresh decor and trendy furnishings. Perfect place for young and old.

On a sunny Spring day, protected from the chilly breeze by the semi-outdoor glass-house like structure, we had a simple but fresh and tasty lunch. Everything was pleasant: the food, the surrounds in the middle of Daylesford's Botanical Gardens, the service, the slightly quaint piped music.

We were staying at Wombat Hill Cottage so were able to walk through our back gate to this little gem. We had a great breakfast meal, with beautiful fresh ingredients, something we had come to expect from all the eateries we tried in Daylesford. Service was quick and friendly.

Great walk through the gardens to reach the cute cottage styled restaurant. The wait staff were incredibly friendly as soon as you walk in the door. With a menu that changes day to day with local produce, there is always something different to try. The food was amazing and we enjoyed every bite!

After hearing so much about the house I was pleasantly surprised to receive great food, matching wine, matching service and a cosy vibe to suit. Another great eatery for family and friends to try!

Went with a friend for coffee and cake on a glorious Saturday afternoon. Sign on the door announced full house and to come back at 2.00pm. It was 2.30pm, and a chap also going in told us there were plenty of tables out back. On entering, the supervisor told us to go away, as people were still finishing lunch. My... More
