We had a chicken curry wrap and seafood chowder. It was nice that there was a free dispenser for ice and water. It was cafeteria style eating which served the purpose just right!

Enjoy the Blue Poppy Restaurant with its conservatory atmosphere where light pours in through skylights and large windows facing the gardens. Our lunch and dinner menus change seasonally to take advantage of fresh local ingredients. For children, we have a menu with perennial favourites. See The Butchart Gardens website for menus and details. Consider the Coffee Shop or Dining Room Restaurant at The Butchart Gardens during this period.
