Mum and I enjoyed morning tea in the cafe, got to love the name “Bad Habits” We can highly recommend the scones and One serving between two is enough. Also a great coffee. Great customer service, very obligating to accommodate my mums special needs.

We recently had a fun and tasty family lunch at the Convent restaurant. Service was friendly and enthusiastic, but slightly haphazard. But overall a pleasant, interesting and relaxed place to eat when visiting DAYLESFORD.

Gorgeous place, inside and out, with a very cute little café! There was some cool art, a small museum and a bell tower. Entrance fee was only $5, definitely worth it !
