Description

In the heart of the Royal Botanic Gardens, the Terrace is one of Melbourne's great treasures, set amid the gardens’ beautifully landscaped grounds.

Choose an outdoor table in the sunshine with spectacular views of the lake, or sit inside in the cafe and choose from the a la carte menu of snacks and light meals.

Afternoon tea with homemade scones with jam and cream is a popular choice year-round, or you can reserve a table for high tea with ribbon sandwiches, scones and delicate cakes.

Takeaway gourmet picnic boxes are available for adults and children, and music is sometimes provided by the gardens’ resident harpist, Michael Johnston.
