Gardenway is a plant nursery that also offers café and shopping options for quality indoor and outdoor products. It is always such a peaceful setting, even on a rainy day, and the opportunity to eat, wander or buy is a thrill in itself. It never fails to please. I take friends here for all sorts of celebrations or merely to... More

Yes I agree this pic is not from here. Anyway moving on...food is not bad. Could have done with a slightly bigger portion for the price. Good friendly staff and service. Relaxing environment and good range of brekkie choices. Increase the portion sizes slightly more and would have increased the rating. Overall not bad but,but could do better.

The photo uploaded is most definitely NOT taken at Gardenway. It is an informal outdoor undercover area which in no way resembles this photo.

A group of us recently experienced a very disappointing overpriced lunch at Gardenway Monier, The consensus was not to return, better value elsewhere !

Firstly this is a lovely place to eat. The salad I ordered was fresh but small. At $20 it was way over priced even though enjoyable. My bill after coffee came to over $25 which I though a bit steep given what I was actually served. The service is exemplary and the fact that one is seated is very nice.... More

Breakfast menu is delicious! We done here regularly and it is a popular spot for weekend breakfast. It's lively sitting out in the garden and listening to the sound of water from the water feature. I hear the high tea's are great too.. Must try soon!

As the name suggests, the cafe opens onto a huge garden area, making it a lovely spot for locals to meet up for coffee or lunch. The service and food are both consistently great.

The cafe has a nice outlook over a small fountain and plants such as bougainvillea. The menu was a bit more expensive than we had expected. We both had one of the cheaper options, the spinach and ricotta pie with salad at $14.90. The serving of pie was in fact a small slice, really too small. They had run out... More

Set between the garden/household shop and the nursery, the cafe is a delightful place to have lunch or a coffee. It is a little haven away from the highway traffic and industrial surrounds with friendly staff, a good menu and reasonable prices. Not supposed to feed the birds but I did sneak a chip to them!
