Very tasty carrot cake (be warned.....huge serving); moist and delicious pear & pecan friand and 2 excellent coffees. This is a comfortable cafe to be in; nicely dressed and inviting. Has courtyard seating available as well. Quick service too.

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...More
