Quaint little cafe in the middle the botanical gardens. Nice variety of cakes and lunch options. Definitely worth a stop before or after a walk through the gardens!

Each time I've been here, the menu has been diverse and everything on offer is fresh, tasty and different. Prices are a little steep, but it is what you would expect when you see the menu. Would certainly come back. Yum !
