Strolling through the George Brown Botanical Gardens can be very thirsty work, so Eva's cafe was a welcome sight. Lovely to sit in the cool and relax for a while. Knowing that the building was once a church is an added reason to enter it....More

A beautiful vintage style cafe situated in the George Brown Darwin Botanic Gardens. Open 7 days a week serving freshly made food and a perfect spot for a good catch up over brekkie or a lunch with friends and family! Now available for high tea's and open and licenced for private functions - Eva's is just as beautiful in the evening.
