Tried to have a late lunch but unfortunately even though they are open until later only offer lunch to 2.30pm. Had nice cakes and scones in a beautiful setting.

This is a very welcoming cafe to visit, you can even bring your fur baby (outside), I'm so fussy I was beginning to think no one could make me a decent cup of coffee anywhere, but the Japanese Garden Cafe can.

Good honest country food with no Japanese Dishes. One wag remarked” You’d think that they would serve sushi here” but there was none, not even for ready money! None the less my smoked salmon on fresh bread roll plus salad was fresh & tasty.

What an amazing and wonderful place to visit with sad past history. The place was well maintained and had beautiful cherry blossoms, this being spring time. If you are planning to visit Cowra, make sure it is on your must list

Beautiful views and great tea and scones, the scones with jam & cream were absolutely yummy. You can go there just for coffee or a meal

We visited for breakfast on a Saturday morning before an amazing walk in the Japanese gardens. Order at the counter. Staff were polite and friendly. Meals were tasty and a good portion. Coffee was great. Nice outlook. Recommended even if you aren’t visiting the gardens.

An excellent Japanese garden in-line to reflect on the historical past. The cafe provides a point of relaxation with a coffee and small meal. A very pleasant place.
