Doesn't look like much on the outside, but gorgeous on inside. Definitely pop in and check it out. Even has an indoor courtyard with lots of light. Tasty ginger carrot soup of the day and Reuben sandwich. Coffee was delicious. The staff were friendly and helpful. I spilt my coffee and they gave me another on the house! Highly recommend

We both had the chicken and mushroom pie that the chef Gui makes, it comes dressed with seasonal vegetables and was absolutely brilliant. The filling was moist so it did not need any further sauce. The pastry was buttery and we thoroughly loved seeing it on the menu again, it came with the option of a glass of wine with... More

This cafe serves above average food, we had the chicken pie and soup. Both were excellent and good sized portions. It's a nice walk through the gardens to get to as well.

Casual cafe in the delightful setting of the Wombat Hill gardens was recommended to us by locals. I can see why. My bowl of roasted sweet potato & carrot soup served with toasted whole grain sourdough & garnished with shaved dried radish, chosen from the specials board, was a feast for the senses. It looked sensational, smelt wonderful & tasted... More

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!
