Disappointing. Situated on the grounds at Longwood Gardens, next to DuPont's Conservatory, swimming in the extravagance of the early 1%, the Terrace looks the part until you pass the Hostess station. The service staff were dressed well, looked professional, but delivered like a good diner not even close to expectations at this price point. The restaurant opened in 1983 and... More

It is because they use a variety of mushrooms, including wild ones, that their soup is great. A bit overpriced but worth it as they use fresh ingredients and some imagination. I enjoy it most seating outside when the weather is good.

There were 8 of us including my 5 grandchildren all 8 and under. After having a wonderful time roaming around the grounds and conservatory we stopped to get something to eat.I will say the prices are a little high especially with 5 kids and the cost to get in. After ordering pizzas and a few other items we settled in... More

Lots of options are available from sandwich's to pizza to hot foods and salads. Good variety of deserts too. Large seating area indoors - great outdoor seating too if the weather is nice... Close to the observatory it is a good break after walking the gardens before heading inside. Always a good stop during our trips to Longwood..

Food is good, but not great. Remember, its still a cafeteria. The options are pretty good. They try to add some flair and use local ingredients. Is it overpriced? Yes. Meal deal of half a sandwich, salad/soup, fruit and drink for $12 is pretty good, but $1.50 for a bag of Herr's chips is way too much. You can get... More

We enjoyed selecting from a vast menu of options, and of course you must try the mushroom soup since the area is known as the mushroom capital of the world! Nice paninis and sandwiches and salads. We didn't sample the hot food entrees or the large number of dessert options. One of the dining rooms has a fireplace and the... More

Went to LG for the chrysanthemum festival, which was beautiful. The cafe is overpriced and nothing special but you are paying for location and convenience. It was pretty crowded. I purchased a bottled iced tea, full sandwich (you could get half), regular bag of chips and the small soup and that came up to over $20. Hey, I figured I... More

Good selection of food for lunch or snacks. Quite busy but lots of seating available. Cafeteria steel with servers giving you your choice.

Liked: it's clean and convenient, and sitting outside is pleasant. Disliked: no gluten free options, so one of us went hungry
