The Governor's Cafe Overview

After taking a tour around the Old Castlemaine Gaol, head next door and grab a bite to eat at The Governor’s Cafe. With views overlooking Castlemaine, this rustic style cafe offers guests a warm and welcoming setting to enjoy either outside in the Governor’s yard or relaxing on lounges by a toasty fire left to crackle away on cold days. The Gov’s menu changes regularly, and is accommodating to vegans, vegetarians and those that are gluten free, with options such as espresso and brown butter banana bread with maple butter and lemon balm as well as housemade potato and herb gnocchi with roasted tomatoes and pinenuts. Book in for a Friday or Saturday night dinner of poached Atlantic salmon with crisp skin atop of a sweet potato cake with golden raisin puree, pickled radish and salmon roe.

Best Known For

“Busta Shroom” herb and garlic roasted mushrooms with Meredith goats feta and toasted hazelnuts on rye.
