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

Such a gorgeous place to have a lazy breakfast and unwind. Crumpets were amazingly delicious. Friendly and welcoming staff and great coffee.

Visited for breakfast on the 21st and can only say that while the location is very special the food and menu were not. Poached eggs that were hard, muesli that was just a commercial granola - not impressed.

Our Lions Club ( about 16 people) came here for breakfast on Saturday and it was really good. I had the best crumpets ever with fruit and ricotta I think everyone enjoyed their breakfast. The cafe is well appointed in the botanical gardens and the menu is extensive. We will be back

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

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
