Surprisingly nice restaurant on the grounds of Longwood

This is a very nice restaurant with lots of variety. It is a welcome rest and refreshment after walking through the gardens. I was surprised to find a full service restaurant on the grounds of Longwood. It is good for a quick lunch and/or a cold drink. The staff are friendly and helpful.

This was an okay place to eat while visiting Longwood Gardens. It was cafeteria style and very busy. We had sandwiches and salads. Pretty much what you would expect for an attraction restaurant. As expected the prices were a little high for the food served. But it was convenient and quick.

It is a "cafeteria style" place with a good variety of food and reasonable prices and it is conveniently located to the main Longwood Gardens conservatory. Don't expect a lot but it's OK.

The Terrace Restaurant at Longwood Gardens is always a good choice for a casual lunch, dinner or snack. The restaurant offers an array of choices including sandwiches, salads, pizza and other hot meal choices. Desserts are very appealing and there is an assortment of beverages available to meet everyone’s needs: water, tea, coffee, coda and beer. I like being able... More

My friend and I had an excellent dinner here. She ended the meal with a dessert that looked like a flower in a pot!! Make sure you make reservations. We did and still had to eat at 5 o'clock

This is not a fancy restaurant, but rather a family quick-lunch place. Everything is well organized there and optimized for quick selection. Multiple stalls with conveniently placed cash registers, variety of ready-made and cooked food for many different tastes. Usually I try not to use museum eateries. Longwood Terrace is a pleasant exception.

Food is tasty at this cafe and while a bit overpriced; the quality of the ingredients trumps what you'll find at a lot of other attractions. However when this place gets busy be prepared to wait as the layout to the registers does not allow a swift progression of traffic and even though it runs on two sides it will... More
