“A good place to eat at Buchart gardens”

Blue Poppy Restaurant
Description: Enjoy the Blue Poppy Restaurant with its conservatory atmosphere where light pours in through skylights and large windows facing the gardens. Our lunch and dinner menus change seasonally to take advantage of fresh local ingredients. For children, we have a menu with perennial favourites. See The Butchart Gardens website for menus and details. Consider the Coffee Shop or Dining Room Restaurant at The Butchart Gardens during this period.

We had a chicken curry wrap and seafood chowder. It was nice that there was a free dispenser for ice and water. It was cafeteria style eating which served the purpose just right!

Despite my title this was a great place to eat and the food was well presented, a great chowder and a variety of other foods available.

You probably come to Butchart Gardens to admire the flowers and the landscape, not for dining. But we all do need to eat. And Blue Poppy provides a convenient means of having lunch while at the Gardens, without a huge time commitment. Come in, get some chow, sit down, eat, and be out in 25 minutes.

It's cafeteria style . . .grab a tray and go through the line, and take what you want.
Don't set your expectations too high. The food is not particularly impressive, and the hot items (e.g., spaghetti) look kind of gloppy and "food-service-y". The sandwiches are prepackaged and cold. I had the pork sandwich, which actually wasn't too bad.

Also . . . the fountain sodas are NOT self-service, implying no free refills.

I'd advise timing your visit to the Gardens to that you can eat off-site beforehand or afterwards. Or, consider the more formal "The Dining Room" at Butchart Gardens, though that will be pricey and is not a good environment for kids.
