  • Had brunch with the family here and definitely decent choices on the menu! I would highly recommend the cakes that they have on the shelves... it was all yum!!!
  • Great food and place for a relax day. Plenty to choose from menu. Drinks are well sorted. Beautiful garden surround and lots to dig in Daylesford. Very busy and popular thus Can be a little hard to get a table sometimes. So better book before show up.
  • Nice place. cool drive.. lot of animals and old.. big trees..oak trees are out of this world. Scenic place with the convent by the side. Art gallery has a $5 entrance fee. Need to enter through the cafe. All in all nice calm place to spend at least 5 hrs anyone who visits Daylsford/ Hepburn. Tower is a great tour too..
  • Very nice and calm. Loved the atmosphere. The look out tower is fascinating and latte at the coffee shop was excellent.
  • Lovely quite place to reflect, the pioneer tower is a good look out over the area & kids will love it being like a exploring a castle (it may not be suitable to let young children climb alone as it is quite a drop form the the top) ...
