Warrandyte has so many treasures, including this one. Warran Glen ain't just a nursery. It has the most amazing shop, filled to the brim with gift ideas AND a darn fine cafe up on the hill. The cafe over looks the entire property and the creek that is home for the paddling of ducks. But Mamma's pick is it sit in the courtyard out the back with Thomas. Kids have full rein of the cubby-come-train and will be toot-tooting all morning - and car ride home if you're lucky! The cafe has and amazing menu and great options for the kids. Mamma can't go past the avocado bruschetta stack. There is heaps of space for prams and bigger groups. You will need to book as it is a popular spot!
Mamma's special mention: The nursery itself is a great place to explore and smell the roses, feed some ducks and go discover your green thumb.
