We took some friends from Perth here. The two Reubens we ordered lacked corn beef; for the price we paid, this was disappointing. The sandwich/roll menu had some nice suggestions and the menu stated, and "made or order" but when we attempted to order the Indian man taking the orders said they did not. His English was not very good... More

Visited for breakfast on the 21st and can only say that while the location is very special the food and menu were not. Poached eggs that were hard, muesli that was just a commercial granola - not impressed.

Our Lions Club ( about 16 people) came here for breakfast on Saturday and it was really good. I had the best crumpets ever with fruit and ricotta I think everyone enjoyed their breakfast. The cafe is well appointed in the botanical gardens and the menu is extensive. We will be back

Only stopped here for coffee whilst we were looking at the on site gift shop. Loved the décor and the trendy tables and chairs. I enjoyed the apple pie although was a little disappointed that the pastry was soft - would have been nice to have a bit of crunch. Flavour of the apple was great though and my husband... More

We came to the cafe on recommendation and were glad we did. The aesthetics are wonderful and the food was so very tasty. We enjoyed two breakfasts at mid morning. Being right in the gardens our two year old could run around when she wasn't eating the cake she choose from the glass display. I really enjoyed the wing backed... More
