Decent service, nice cabinet food. Coffee was ok. Handy stop when looking for plants. The lemon cake was pretty good.

Service was very good at botanix - it was a cold day with no available tables inside so we sat on the deck outside. There are heaters and they put the plastic screens down and got blankets for anyone who wants them. The food is good. They provide a good mix of cabinet and menu options. Coffee was good. It...

Free range eggs in my Eggs Bennie were divine, rich and perfectly cooked. Great bacon and spinach on a beautiful bread base. My dining companion had the Vegetarian Stack which included mushroom, tomato, butternut and pan fried haloumi with a poached egg stacked on top of a tasty quinoa and pumpkin risotto cake sprinkled with toasted pumpkin seeds and served...

Very good cafe right inside the garden store Palmers. Great food and beverages and the atmosphere is beautiful with all of the plants at Palmers and the birds chirping as you drink your coffee. Usually come here on a Sunday when other cafes are closed and we enjoy every visit. Car parking is never an issue and getting there is... More

We always make time to visit here when in NP. The food never fails to deliver, lots to choose from and utterly delicious! The staff are welcoming and attentive. We team it up with a wander around the garden centre which has really improved in the last year and looks fresh and inviting. Great place to spend some time!

A visit to Botanix Cafe. I was looking for an alternative to a hot coffee and I was so delighted with the ice coffee. It was so creamy and just the the best one I had sampled. It has set me on a mission to find other bests. I will report my journey :)

The garden centre and cafe are under new management since I was last in New Plymouth and what a vast difference I found. The centre was well tended and beautifully laid out and all the plants looked really healthy. Inside there was an excellent range of gifts for purchase too. The cafe had heaps of very tempting dishes, a good... More
