The Terrace Café rests at the centre of the Royal Botanic Gardens, on the edge of one of the garden's many beautiful lakes. It offers a comfortable place to sit and enjoy the view over a sweet treat, brunch, or coffee, a refuge from the weather if it turns on you mid-walk, or a place to recover your energy if you're planning to explore the entirety of these enormous gardens.
It is, hands down, one of my favourite cafes in Melbourne. It easily has the best view and atmosphere of any place to enjoy your breakfast, and it offers healthy, delicious, well-priced food. It's a perfect place to take visitors to show off the gardens, one Melbourne's loveliest destinations. I bring myself here anytime I feel like a great feed and some tranquility.
I absolutely love this big brekky. It has plenty of bacon, and from a bacon-fiend like myself, that means something. It features broccolini to keep it fresh, fluffy eggs and bread, fresh cherry tomatoes, buttery mushrooms and tasty tomato bean relish. It leaves you feeling healthy and totally satisfied.
And you can enjoy it with this view from the outdoor seats.
