Cute little cafe, but clearly too busy to cope with a wedding brunch, and the kitchen was open and very loud.

Thanks for visiting our Wombat Hill House cafe. Weekends do get busy in our neck of the woods; however we hope that the lovely gardens are an opportunity to escape the crowds and find a private spot. Thursday, Friday and Monday are always a little quieter. More

My hubby and I visited wombat hill house for a late lunch and it was a treat. Their corned beef Ruben was delicious and so too was the pumpkin pizza special. We then took in the beautiful grounds as we went for a stroll after lunch. Great way to spend some time.

Love fresh, creative food sourced from local environment. Like so many food outlets in Daylesford the Wombat Hill Cafe set in same name Botanical Gardens produces the goods. Featuring a blackboard menu of specials plus display of homemade bakery treats, fresh juices this gorgeous cafe really delivers.

It is hard to tell that this cafe is anything to bother with from the outside. It almost looks like garden maintenance buildings until you walk in. We were taken by pleasant surprise by the large cafe and two lovely outside eating areas. It is a great spot for breakfast / brunch surrounded by the Wombat Hill Botanical Gardens. We... More

This is a nice spot to visit after walking around the botanic gardens. Mostly lunch, afternoon tea and breakfast but also stays open until dusk on Friday nights for dinner. Friendly staff, quirky layout and fun decor - a great spot for a quick bite.

We just enjoyed a lovely breakfast here this morning. Staff were nice and the bacon was yum. It was lovely sitting in the outside area and the walk to and from through the garden was very relaxing.

Great place to have a very good meal in tranquil surroundings, whilst the menu may be limited but the food on offer is of a high standard. The service is excellent.
