Time Out Melbourne

Play croquet and then have a picnic breakfast at the Stables

As your great great grandparents always said, there's nothing like a rousing game of croquet followed by crumpets and quiche Lorraine for brekkie. They were right. In the heart of South Yarra is Como House, one of Melbourne’s oldest colonial estates. Take a guided tour of the mansion, then hit the newly-opened Stables Café, brought to you by the same team behind Snow Pony, Friends of Mine and Porgie & Mr. Jones. Book ahead and these fine fellows will make you a picnic complete with croquet set, boules, or playing cards to help you embrace your inner aristocrat.
