This is a charming spot for a break from walking the botanical gardens. My family has been there twice and both times we stopped in for coffee and pastries. The coffee is good, but the pastries are amazing. We had the most exquisite berry cheesecake...More

Sun-dappled tables fill a greenhouse in the Botanic Gardens and spill onto a flower-lined terrace at this lovely cafe that specializes in wholesome local ingredients - some grown in the gardens themselves! Soups come with fantastic sourdough bread, and the snacks range from cheese platters with nuts and honey to pulled-pork sandwiches. Coffee and homemade cakes round it all out.
