If you're planning a daytime garden-themed event and want all the greenery possible, why not hold it in one of Melbourne's many garden nursery cafes? They'll have the catering on hand to make it easy for you. Here's seven of our favourites!
If you're seeking a rustic bush settingfor your corporate event, consider booking it at the Warran Glen Cafe in Warrandyte, nestled on the banks of Jumping Creek.
If your event focuses on sustainable, eco-friendly products and services, you might want to book it at the Merri Cafe at Ceres Environment Park.
A non-profit centre offering an organic grocery and cafe, nursery and environmental education, this is ideal for guests who are mostly vegetarian, vegan and/or on a gluten-free diet.
However, in keeping with its earth-friendly ethos, all meat and dairy products on the Merri Cafe menu are organic, free range and cruelty free.
The Merri Cafe is best to book for smaller weekday functions of 15-30 people and for Saturday to Tuesday nights with a minimum of 30 people and a maximum of 80 people.
Another rooftop garden in the heart of the CBD is on level 6 of Curtin House which surely must be Melbourne's cornucopia of function spaces, blessed as it is with venue options on every single floor!
You can book the charming Mesa Verde for garden-themed events for as exclusive as 12 people or for up to 30 guests.
The venue is perfect for spring and summer time events.
Your guests can sip their cocktails and enjoy a modern take on classic Mexican flavours amongst lush green surroundings whilst enjoying panoramic views of the Melbourne city skyline.
Bay Road Nursery & Cafe, Sandringham
The quaint weatherboard Bay Road Cafe (almost Hamptons-esque in style) is connected by an undercover walkway to the nursery shop (just try and stop yourself from buying some gorgeous homewares) and has a paved courtyard, naturally lush with greenery and plants for purchase.
The licensed cafe is open seven days a week from 9am-4pm including most public holidays, offering capacity for around 50 seated or 80 guests standing during normal business hours.
For out of hours events the cafe can obtain an extended license for its outside courtyard can hold around 100 guests.
The Bay Road Nursery & Cafe prefers to use its own chefs wherever possible, but are happy to work with outside catering as required. See some other Melbourne venues which also allows external caterers.
