Found this great little spot in Anglesea when we were driving down to the Great Ocean Road. Beautiful food and stunning scenery. Friendly staff and well priced. Great little cafe that feels like you are dining in another world.

Most beautiful little cafe tucked away in a beautiful little nursery in Anglesea. Such a gorgeous and unique place. The food is absolutely delicious, everything from the meals, desserts, snacks and coffee. All so delicious! Great little spot and a MUST GO if you're ever in Anglesea!

McGain's Nursery is so much more than just a fab nursery! The cafe had a wide variety on offer including great coffee & a great assortment of teas. Gluten free & vegetarian meals also available. As well as the cafe they have a local produce store that was out of this world! If you follow Paleo or are just looking... More

Oh for a glass of local wine to go with the predictable Frittata and salad fare. Menu is tired; gluten free options scare among the many variations of egg/vegatable bake. Environment is relaxing, staff polite, but limiting beverages to teas, coffee and juices truly misses the significant opportunities to showcase local vineyards and to provide a more contemporary dining experience...

The food and atmosphere is really something. Beautiful food presented well. Who doesn't love eating in amongst plants and flowers. The thing that really lets it down is the lack of friendly staff. It seems there is a reliance on the atmosphere, and not much, if any importance is placed on a customer feeling welcome and loved. It has been... More

Healthful food inside a nursery. Food was great, including coffee, with an amazing selection of gluten-free desserts.

I'd been to Anglesea a lot through the years but had totally missed McGain's Nursery and Cafe. This quirky nursery/cafe combo is perfect for a leisurely breakfast or lunch or a coffee and muffin as you browse through the plants on offer. The menu, though not extensive, has a good variety of choices with a bent to the healthy and... More

I had a delicious lunch with friends here. It had a good selection. The fruit and vegetable shop was also very good.

This is a very eclectic cafe, with rustic tables & chairs dotted amongst plants & water features. The food was very tasty and healthy,with a good choice, but the carrot & other vegetables sliced into long shoestring pieces made it hard to pick up & eat. I could see other people struggling as well. The staff weren't particularly cheerful. Even... More
