The Topiary Café is a lovely spot for coffee or food, in a garden centre. The food is great & they make a fabulous coffee - good flavour, good consistency & stretched just right - keep it up girls. Would CERTAINLY recommend.

Surprise to find a great cafe overlooking a stunning garden in a garden centre down a metal drive in Mosgiel. Food was excellent and service was speedy as we had asked so we could catch a plane. Highly recommended

Lovely setting, great food with good coffee and service. Hadn't expected this much from a garden centre cafe. One improvement. The road sign obstructs your view on exiting the driveway.

We had chips and they were great. I'd go back any day. Keep up the work guys and gals! It's a wonderful outlook, over a mini golf course with ducks and people. Very nice setting altogether. High ranking for the area, nice and friendly... See...More
