Lovely cafe in a great setting in a beautifully maintained botanical gardens right in the centre of town. My latte was hot (not always the case) and we shared a croissant from Dairy Flat Farm bakery that would pass muster in Paris as part of a classic petit dejeurner. Another great reason to visit DAYLESFORD.

We drove to Daylesford to meet friends for lunch. The location of the cafe is lovely in the middle of the gardens. Our meals were really poor. The lamb dish was the worst, dry, fatty, bland. My wife has come home sick after the food. It was really bad. The chick pea curry had no chick peas, was cold, with bad re heated rice. The fish and chips was ok. Overall we cannot, unfortunately recommend this cafe

Wombat Hill, erstwhile volcano, is topped today by a splendid exotic botanic garden, and of late, a cafe. This is very tastefully furnished and welcoming, and offers wholesome lunch options. I had but two quibbles: 1. The coffee was not hot enough - perhaps in keeping with the old volcano’s extinct status), and 2 (and less importantly) if one wanted to read the paper, one had to purchase it.

Wombat Hill House never disappoints. The food is always delicious, well prepared and interesting too. Grab a seat by the fire if you can. It's beautiful.

Excellent food and setting! Friendly staff. Had a fish and chips (excellent) fresh juice and wine in the garden. So relaxing and dog friendly. Only grip is the counter service. A regular go to place in Daylesford. Quirky concept in the old gardens house set in the Botanical Gardens. Great little nursery next door with all founds going back to the gardens.
