Let me be clear we haven't eaten at this place so far, but we have come back plenty of times (and we live an hour away!) for its beautiful cakes and gorgeous atmosphere. It is in an old european style house, tall ceilings and wonderful garden which you can sit in. It is not too noisy either and very family... More

We attended the Great Hall of Earthly Pleasures for the wedding reception of my niece. An interesting venue, raw brick, high ceiling, bluestones, old chapel and a heap of history. The reception was a cocktail party style with a variety of finger food dishes. All the food was great with more than enough to go around. All the staff were... More

Food on offer is a little off the norm. Waited ages to be served, the menu was very unappealing and when meal was finally delivered to the table it was awful. Will never go back there again. Prices were on the high side for what it was. Only sat there out of courtesy to other dinner companions.

We went here for lunch. I thought the building and the atmosphere was fantastic. The staff were excellent - helpful and professional while also being relaxed and welcoming. The menu was great, a good and had a lot of vegetarian options, I had the lentil burger which was delicious and was also HUGE, I couldn't finish it. I would definitely... More

A friend took me here and I had never heard of it before - what a Hidden Treasure. The ambiance was just lovely inside and outside. The food was lovely and the staff really sweet - nothing was too hard for them. And they SPLIT THE BILL - I'd go back just for this. But seriously it was a very... More

While the environment is pleasant, the food lets you down. An extremely small menu that is limited to focacias and wraps, with maybe two or three other choices off the "specials" board. All in all it was disappointing, especially when they kept coming back to light the fire again and again. There was nothing about our experience this time to... More

I had my last birthday here and have had many fantastic meals at Earthly Pleasures. The food is imaginative and the vibe unbeatable. Its also reasonably priced. In sunny weather its a great place to take kids- they can run around in the front garden without bothering other patrons. My favourite restaurant in Belgrave

On a recent visit from Tasmania, my son and his girlfriend took me to Earthly Pleasures for lunch. To say I was impressed is a huge understatement. Every single thing was fantastic - the beautiful stone exterior of the building, the stunning interior décor, the lovely atmosphere, the full and varied menu, the friendly staff and most of all the...

Serving fantastic coffee in a warm room decked out with local art, Earthly Pleasures is indeed a pleasure. Scrambled tofu with spinach, onions and herbs was a delicious blend of salty and sweet, while the fried eggs were declared PERFECT by my companion. Not cheap but very high quality, thoughtfully prepared produce.
