Food was good, but prices were a little high, staff was pleasant. The tables were clean as was the silverware. A pleasant dining experience.

We stopped at the cafe for lunch after a 2 hour meander through the gardens. It was clean and spacious, and the staff were business-like but friendly. The food was pretty basic but good-tasting: sandwiches, soups, a salad bar, and desserts...with Coka-Cola products, of course, since Mr. Bellingrath was the first CC bottler in Mobile! The cafe is a nice... More

Sandwich bar available. Each order has large portions and yummy bread. Large atrium area to eat in. I was there at the wrong time of year to be able to eat outside, but it was still very nice.

We each get the salad trio: shrimp salad, broccoli salad, and ambrosia. Service was very friendly. Good food for a decent price, and the view out the window was outstanding.

The café’s chicken wrap and chicken gumbo were both well-flavored and reasonably priced. We had decent food quickly from the cafeteria line, saving us just that much more time to tour the delightful gardens. The café and gift shop are located in a separate building adjacent to the entry building where you pay admission to go in the gardens. The... More

The food, a chicken salad sandwich with chips, is adequate for two people. A very clean Café. It is next to the Great Gift Shop and restrooms.

Was very surprised.. We were thinking hambergers or hot dogs, instead we had a very good salad and wrap. Service was good and price was not bad..

Quick service, very comfortable seating, nice ambiance, and fair prices. The chicken salad sandwiches come with potato chips and are good and filling. A place like this - that is the only food available on site - could be a big rip-off but it's not. Every simgle employee we encountered was polite, helpful, and cheerful Recommended.
