I enjoyed the apple pie although was a little disappointed that the pastry was soft - would have been nice to have a bit of crunch. Flavour of the apple was great... read more

We came to the cafe on recommendation and were glad we did. The aesthetics are wonderful and the food was so very tasty. We enjoyed two breakfasts at mid morning. Being right in the gardens our two year old could run around when she wasn't eating the cake she choose from the glass display. I really enjoyed the wing backed... More

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.
