My husband and I really enjoyed our time here! The atmosphere alone is beautiful and inviting. Our server didn't speak much English but she did the best she could and it was enough to allow us to order something. My husband had a salmon salad...More

Lovely location inside the botanical gardens. Can sit "outside" within a green house. Nice coffee and cake. The trip adviser app incorrectly shows it as being closed. Popular with locals and also families. Nearby the petting zoo.

It was cool and drizzly day to visit the gardens and the cafe was a perfect refuge with great lunch and afternoon cake & coffee/tea.

Sun-dappled tables fill a greenhouse in the Botanic Gardens and spill onto a flower-lined terrace at this lovely cafe that specializes in wholesome local ingredients - some grown in the gardens themselves! Soups come with fantastic sourdough bread, and the snacks range from cheese platters with nuts and honey to pulled-pork sandwiches. Coffee and homemade cakes round it all out.
