The real attraction to this restaurant is the restaurant itself. It's a beautiful old stone house with a history and set in a lovely garden on the main street of Belgrave. There's a nice verandah to enjoy your coffee on a sunny day. The food...More

Loved the food here, it's a little arty, has a large vegan selection, and a little quirky. But great home style food at good prices. Coffee is delish too. The building is stunning too as I think it's an old farmhouse.

Had a lovely lunch with 3 friends and despite the weather being very dull, we thoroughly enjoyed our lunch in this beautiful old house. The wood panelled ceiling soared above us and the lovely old brick walls gave the place such warmth and ambiance. The...More

Love this historic building with the beautiful log fire and their outdoor dining on the patio in summer. They have a great trance of vegetarian and vegan options and the specials are always mouthwatering and difficult to choose

Description
Earthly Pleasures Café is Belgrave's iconic gem, hidden by a lush garden, right in the middle of town. The building's impressive 20-foot high bluestone walls warrant a heritage listing, but today the café's mandate is modern. Earthly Pleasures has built its reputation on ethically sourced produce and small batch roasted artisan coffee that meets Melbourne's highest standards of coffee. The generously-portioned meals are made from scratch - everything from chutneys, pestos and homemade cakes. And the local craft beers and boutique wines impress the locals, while also drawing the inner city crowd to the hills. Built in the 1930s by the Jorgensen family (famous also for later building Montsalvat in Eltham) Earthly Pleasures moonlights as a function venue at night. If the walls could talk, they'd speak of bohemian parties starring the beatnik artistic community of mid-century Victoria. Whatever time of day you're in Belgrave, Earthly Pleasures is a must see It's the perfect place to dine or pop in for a drink before exploring the Belgrave streetscape, Puffing Billy, Trees Adventure or any of the beautiful national parks within a bluestone's throw.
