Love this place and the food is great. They have vegetarian option and soy base cappuccino too! Is a great place to stop by for breakfast and lunch and is near airport. Love the sense of humor in their decoration too, nice place!

The cafe furnishings are nothing special but coffee is good quality and the cake range, especially in gluten free is impressive for a garden cafe.

Absolutely beautiful breakfast and reasonably priced! Was a little noisy and crammed in but the breakfast was worth it. Great coffee too!

We go here frequently for lunch or coffee. Food is excellent, and the staff friendly and helpful. I look forward to one day attempting one of their gigantic meringues! Great coffee, and the setting beside the garden centre is very pleasant, indoor or outdoor seating. Excellent garden centre and gift shop on the premises.

Has changed hands several times since we have been going there which is more years than I care to remember but the high standard of their delicious meals and great service never changes. Surroundings are lovely being in a garden centre, always something delightful to look at all year round.

Really enjoyed our visit. The food was fab and cannot knock it. The only disappointment was the service , had to wait a long time to order and when ordered a long time to get our drink but the time of ordering food to table was spot on. Once you got a member of staff they were very very polite... More
