Menu - Villa Bambini Essendon & Templestowe

Centre Menu

Our delicious menu has been specially designed to ensure even the fussiest eaters grow to love food. We have a 6 week rotating menu to offer variety and balance and can cater for any special requirements your child may have. Lunch is always a hot meal eaten together at the communal dining tables and takes advantage of the best seasonal produce.


We understand that mornings can be a busy time for many families, so we offer children a choice of cornflakes, rice bubbles or weetbix with milk for breakfast. So you can drop off your child and get on with your day, knowing that they are well cared for with a full tummy.
