This was my second visit to Wombat Hill House cafe among the Wombat Hill Botanical Gardens, and I was just as delighted as the very first time. The staff are bubbly and inviting; keen to welcome you in and tempt you with any number of sumptuous menu items to enjoy by the fire or out in the enclosed, heated 'glasshouse'.... More

Food was so fresh with a unique flavour and mixes of food which tasted great. The welcome we received was friendly and accommodating and in particular we took the pooch who was also welcome to sit in the outside dining area with us which was a great plus!

Our family headed out to Daylesford on a mission to go to Wombat Hill cafe and we loved it. Arrived around 1030hrs so not overly busy, it was spacious and a relaxed casual feel. The children were offered some colouring in by the friendly waiter which they enjoyed, who doesn't like colouring in a wombat with wings? The kids enjoyed... More

A small and cozy cafe that serves delicious pasta and light snacks. Situated at the Botanical Gardens, this cafe is surrounded by greenery. I can imagine what it looks like in spring!

We visited for lunch on a Sunday. Our group consisted of three adults, a four year old and a baby. The reception was very friendly and the service very good. The atmosphere is relaxed and we felt quite at home. A picture and pencils were provided for colouring by the child, this was a very nice touch. We had pizza,... More

we sat outside in the enclosed courtyard - could almost not hear each other for the shrieking laughter, screaming baby noises of other guests. I guess this is not the fault of the café. However, we ordered Devonshire tea, one pot of tea and three hot chocolates. The scones were delicious, the cream creamy and the jam very sweet but... More

Had this cafe recommended by the lake house but was very disappointed. Menus were not current & the chicken was so over cooked in the deep fryer that it was impossible to eat.

My sister and I took our parents to Wombat Hill House for high tea to celebrate Mother's Day early. It was well priced at $40 each and included a glass of champagne and tea and coffee as well as some delicious food. Would highly recommend it!
