Great place to eat while visiting the botanical garden. Light and airy atmosphere and great views of the flowers from the windows..Sandwiches and desserts are delicious and fresh; lobster salad or sandwich though fresh is expensive--typical for the area...Outside seating is also relaxing and serene...More

It started raining hard so we decided to eat lunch early. Most of us had soup and a sandwich and it was very good. The restaurant is bright and cheerful and the staff very friendly. A nice lunch menu.

An excellent lunch during our visit to the gardens. Wonderful sandwiches and salads, beautifully presented with fresh flowers at the table (even one on my salad), friendly service and a cheerful atmosphere, looking out at the gardens. Excellently done.

You can outside or in. I had a salad and it was fresh and well prepared. My husband had a lobster roll, also delicious. Prices are reasonable for salads, soups and sandwiches. Service was a bit slow. So relax and enjoy sitting in the garden.

Of course, because this cafe is adjacent to the botanical gardens, the food is exquisitely resented. Te offerings are typical cafe fare--quiche, salads, soups, wraps, etc. Prices are no bargain.

In our two visits here some years apart, we have enjoyed the food both times. The salads are brim full of fresh produce, probably local, including a generous serving of fresh Maine blueberries in mine. Service can be a little slow on busy days, but...More
