St Erth's Fork to Fork cafe in Blackwood, near Daylesford, is one of the best locations for lunch in the local area.

The Garden of St Erth is the perfect destination for a day trip. Stroll through the gorgeous and inspirational gardens, stock up on rare heirloom plants then head to the café for a cuppa with scones or indulge in a leisurely lunch.

With a continued fresh food focus, our seasonal menu sources ingredients from local producers including Istra (sausages and smallgoods),Tuki (trout) & Meredith Dairy (specialty Cheeses), and of course freshly harvested vegetables, herbs & fruit from the garden. Dishes include a seasonal vegetable platter with hummus, beetroot labne & chevre, Pork and Fennel sausages with house made relish & coleslaw or a spicy Middle Eastern Tagine.

Freshly baked scones and cakes are always popular for morning and afternoon tea.

What's on the menu

The kitchen garden is productive over winter, with leeks, florence fennel, five colour silverbeet, Tuscan kale, rocket, green sprouting broccoli, hollow crown parsnip and herbs all being used in the cafe at the moment.
