Family needed a bit of air conditioning and a bit of water, so we stopped in after our nice walk (shortish) from Visitor Center and back again.

This cafe not only has refreshing light sandwiches (served with a side of fresh fruit to keep it light) but the patio is delightfully situated in view of many of the closest, beautiful gardens near the main courtyard.

I have a family member who is a docent here, and it is fun to wait, work and enjoy a bit of quiet until the shift is over. The Cafe is right aside the inner courtyard, and you can... More

We had a wonderful lunch here after enjoying a spa visit nearby. I love the pumpkin soup and the aquaduct salad. The Mediterranean vinaigrette dressing was delicious and light. Hibiscus tea was good too. Nice place to relax and enjoy the scenery.

We had a delightful lunch here. Great food and a beautiful setting. Later in the day I met a person who had had their wedding there and loved it.
