We could have stayed here for hours sitting amongst the natural surroundings, heirloom tomatoes, olive trees and herbs. Awesome service, delicious food and reasonable prices. Loved it!

A lovely setting for a lovely cafe. Lots of staff, very efficient and friendly. Food came out promptly and the many different sitting areas are lovely. Food was fresh and delicious. Well worth a visit and then a walk through the gardens to burn it...More

Located in the centre of the Wombat Botanic gardens, this cafe is classy with quality food, in beautiful surrounds. Coffee is at times the best in Daylesford...which is quite something given the stiff competition.

Lovely location with nice cafe menu choices. Coffee was good, as were the scones with jam and cream. A tad overpriced but on a par with most other options in Daylesford. Staff not overly friendly.
