Small menu but makes it easy to choose. Nice food. A bit expensive but good as a fancy once off treat. Lovely place though!

I love the ambience of this place and have many a good dish here over the years but the warm vegetable salad was not what I expected at all. A plate full of lettuce and 3 or 4 pieces of vegetable is not my idea of a warm vegetable salad, raw zucchini piece was cold and overall the plate was... More

I love love love this restaurant. The staff are so friendly and accommodating and the food is always fresh and delicious. The menu specials are great value for money and you can easily lose a few hours here chatting, eating and catching up with friends. Lovey relaxing restaurant.

I recently had lunch at Earthly Pleasures café with both my vegan daughter and her grandmother (a non-vegan). We were all able to order wonderful dishes which we enjoyed very much and found the service excellent. My only concern was with a walking frame, the access was a little difficult, but certainly worth it.

Lovely food & good Service we had a great time located in Belgrave Vic on Burwood Hwy. The heritage listed building is a great setting and the open fire is cosy on a cold day.

Dropped in on Father's Day without a booking (travelling through from Geelong) staff were amazing and managed to get us a lovely table inside (as we had a young baby and it was quite chilly outside). Highly recommend!! Food and drink = amazing!!

Great variety of meals and several milk choices to suit dietary needs. Delicious, creative food in a beautiful setting. One downside is that coffees and hot drinks tend to be quite slow, though it's worth it if the if the idea of a rice milk chai latte excites you.

Description
Earthly Pleasures Café is Belgrave's iconic gem, hidden by a lush garden, right in the middle of town. The building's impressive 20-foot high bluestone walls warrant a heritage listing, but today the café's mandate is modern. Earthly Pleasures has built its reputation on ethically sourced produce and small batch roasted artisan coffee that meets Melbourne's highest standards of coffee. The generously-portioned meals are made from scratch - everything from chutneys, pestos and homemade cakes. And the local craft beers and boutique wines impress the locals, while also drawing the inner city crowd to the hills. Built in the 1930s by the Jorgensen family (famous also for later building Montsalvat in Eltham) Earthly Pleasures moonlights as a function venue at night. If the walls could talk, they'd speak of bohemian parties starring the beatnik artistic community of mid-century Victoria. Whatever time of day you're in Belgrave, Earthly Pleasures is a must see It's the perfect place to dine or pop in for a drink before exploring the Belgrave streetscape, Puffing Billy, Trees Adventure or any of the beautiful national parks within a bluestone's throw.
