The Abbotsford Convent is an extraordinary place and is becoming an important arts, learning and cultural precinct in Melbourne.
Just four kilometres from Melbourne’s CBD, the Abbotsford Convent historic buildings and lush gardens are spread over 6.8 hectares in a sweeping bend of the Yarra River.
More than 1000 diverse members of the community come to Lentil Abbotsford everyday to share a meal, enjoy the atmosphere, listen to music and drink a coffee.
Opened in 2005 in the former dining hall of the nuns, Lentil Abbotsford is a vibrant and eclectic space to spend the day.
We have an open menu based on seasonal produce that changes daily.
