In the heart of the Royal Botanic Gardens, The Terrace is one of Melbourne's great treasures.
Amid the gardens’ beautifully landscaped grounds, you can choose an outdoor table in the sunshine with spectacular views of the lake or sit inside in the cafe and choose from the à la carte menu or cabinet of snacks and light meals.
Led by the Darling Group, The Terrace's menu champions the best of seasonal produce, matched with an impressive drinks list. Visitors can expect high-quality ingredients with modern Australian cooking techniques and approachable dishes. Some crowd favourites include their famous scones with jam and cream or blueberry and ricotta hotcakes. With outdoor and indoor seating there are options to dine in or get takeaway, with choices of fresh pastries and sandwiches in their cabinet.
Picnic-goers can also get a Terrace-To-Go box which includes a sandwich or salad, juice and a choice of a sweet treat, for your picnic inside the gardens.
