“Dining in the gardens”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

If you out walking the tan or seeing the beautiful gardens or just meeting a few friends for lunch, then you might need a little break and the cafe on observatory square is well worth a visit, the coffee is quick, nice sandwiches and even a few good cakes......value is okay, but its all about where you are and the beautiful gardens that Melbourne can offer......

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 23, 2013

A really great way to spend a free afternoon in Melbourne. Stunning gardens, with a huge variety of plants and wildlife. Don't forget the sun cream you can spend hours in the sun just strolling round it's huge. The cafe was very tasty but very expensive I'd recommend something picked up on the way .
