What an incredible place with fantasic food!

I just love the convent! The food in the cafe is mouth watering - scones with fresh cream and hearty country pies, some of my favourites. I got married at the convent and the venue, service and food was excepional.

Bad Habits Cafe at the Convent Daylesford Overview

A feast for the senses, Bad Habits Café on Daly Street in Daylesford feeds mind, body and soul. Nestled in The Convent Gallery on the crest of Wombat Hill Botanical Gardens, this haven of fine art in an historic 19th Century mansion, boasts expansive views over the countryside. Diners can relax in an atmosphere enhanced by a high atrium ceiling, peaceful palms and art-filled walls, while perusing a Mediterranean-inspired menu with repast choices such as mushroom croquettes with smoky chipotle aioli and truffled bitter green salad. Be enticed by nice not naughty temptations like slow cooked honey and spice lamb ribs with sumac and cucumber, or perhaps lemon and sage schnitzel, served with Sardinian coleslaw and lemon. For a divine end, try the lemon curd crepes with meringue and ice cream.

Best Known For

Braised beef, tomato and red wine pie, with rosemary and Parmesan chats, heirloom vegetables and Convent’s tomato relish.
