Cold Sunday morning and we appreciated the roaring log fire. Eggs and toast for both of us. Ordered home made baked beans, bacon, mushrooms, grilled tomatoes, and spinach as sides to boost up the mains. Washed down with chai lattes and flat whites. Oh and...More

Hadn't been here for quite awhile, since they stopped doing evening meals. I went for lunch with a friend who is a vegetarian. This restaurant always has some good vegetarian choices. I enjoyed one of the specials which was a falafel salad. It was very...More

We had a very good lunch at Earthly Pleasures Cafe and highly recommend you stop there for a meal when visiting the area, especially the Puffing Billy tourist attraction. Great food and nice atmosphere.

After going and watching Puffing Billy, we wandered through lovely Belgrave, nipped into a couple of the fantastic vintage stores and then happened upon the Earthly Pleasures Cafe. We sat outdoors and were quickly served by a friendly and efficient waiter. We (4) all chose...More

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.
