Very nice and convenient cafe to take a break at Longwood Gardens! The peach blueberry crisp a la mode was out of this world! No better way to recharge batteries at the garden!!!

We stopped in to take a break while wandering around Longwood Gardens. While we didn't eat anything substantial, we did enjoy a couple of glasses of their strawberry lemonade and a yummy serving of passionfruit mousse. (I can't resist anything with passionfruit.) We had wanted a scoop of ice cream but the flavor offerings were a bit too bizarre. Cotton... More

A nice break from trekking all around Longwood Gardens. Food is served cafeteria style but many items are not cafeteria grade. There are many items to choose from: the sandwiches were very good ($9.75 whole $5.25 half). There are vegetarian sandwiches as well. There are many hot items: stuffed chicken and a fish(tilapia) dish. There were hot soups to choose... More

While visiting Longwood Gardens we stopped for lunch at the Terrace Restaurant. The food selections were typical of a cafereria style eatery, but the layout and selection process were confusing. When we arrived we found no way to determine the food offerings other than going through the serving line. We had no idea of the variety of food offered making... More

Their Home Made Soups-especially, the locally grown mushroom soup is to die for. Everything is perfect.

After a tour of the gardens we were ready for something to eat. We had taken some snacks, and water. But thought the idea of eating on the terrace looked inviting. My husband and I both had a sandwich ,drink and desert Which we split. The cost was around $20.00 . The table area was clean, the food was well... More

I went to the restaurant not realizing that I'd have an opportunity to sample so many different items. I had grilled vegetables, potatos and roasted cajun catfish. I also decided to have mac and cheese. i skipped the dessert but wanted it so bad. I also saw that they had gelato and ten different sorts of beverages. I had a... More

Located in Longwood Gardens, this is a restful place to stop for lunch or a snack in the midst of wandering thru the delightful garden exhibits. We found the food good and reasonably priced for the location. And it's air conditioned, which on a hot day can provide a cooling respite.

Best cafeteria food I have eaten. Try their house made cheesecake, you will be impressed! They have a wide variety of hot and cold choices, all reasonably priced.

There are two places to eat inside Longwood Gardens, both are at what they call “the terraces”. Once is a sit down, formal restaurant called “1906” and the other is the Café and is the one this review is about. The “Café” is a cafeteria style restaurant with both indoor and outdoor seating areas. The menu is a bit limited... More
