Welcome to Como House & Garden
Como re-opens its Gardens and a New Cafe - The Stables of Como
Como's Garden and a new cafe - The Stables of Como is open 7 days a week for breakfast, brunch, lunch and afternoon tea. The Stables and Como's Garden will be open to visitors from:

Sunday 10am to 5pm.
The café will also be available for private events and catering within Como House and the grounds. Bookings are available for the cafe during the week, but not on weekends
‘The Stables at Como’ will be run by renowned Hospitality Management Group ICKE & IGBY, the driving force behind a number of iconic Melbourne cafes including Porgie + Mr. Jones, Snow Pony and Friends of Mine.
“The group is extremely excited and honoured to have been chosen to launch and operate the cafe situated at the beautiful Como House and Gardens,” Jason Jones from ICKE & IGBY said. “We want the cafe to become the heart of the property, to make Como feel alive again, for people to wander, dream, love and live in the classic estate.” Encapsulating the inspiring and aristocratic history of the 160 year old Como property, the Stables is slated to become a much-needed refuge from the hectic Melbourne city lifestyle, without needing to travel outside of the city fringe.

A stone’s throw away from Melbourne’s shopping mecca and perched high above the Yarra River lies the sanctuary of Como.
Boasting one of Melbourne’s finest gardens, an inspiring historic mansion and an impressive collection of antique furniture, the property provides a glimpse into the privileged lifestyle of its former owners, one of Australia’s wealthiest pioneer families. Now 160 years old, a visit to Como reveals the life and times of Melbourne aristocracy and offers an insight to the transformation of the city through the Gold Rush, a Depression and two World Wars.
Wander the beautifully manicured gardens and immerse yourself in the history, luxury and inspiration that make Como Melbourne’s most glamorous location. You may even want to consider hosting your next party, luncheon, hen's, or wedding on the gorgeous grounds of this hidden gem in South Yarra.
Photography is not permitted inside the house at anytime. Photography is allowed in the garden for non-commercial purposes. For student and commercial filming and photography enquiries please phone (03) 9656 9815.
