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

Longwood gardens is a great place to relax and spend the day. We got to the restaurant a little late and were greated with rudeness. The lady who let us in rolled her eyes. The server was curt and the lady checking us out had no idea what "thank you" ment. What a shame we had such a good time... More

If you plan on spending most of the day at Longwood Gardens the Terrace Restaurant is a great option for a meal. We usually get to Longwood early so we usually eat at the Terrace Restaurant for lunch. There is usually something for everyone the menu. The food is served cafeteria style. Lunch choices range from salads and sandwiches to... More

Dining formal at the restaurant is expensive but oh so good. Great for special occasions. Reservations are recommended The café has a great variety of food, salads, kids fare, hot and cold choices, and great deserts. Crowded in peak times, but the line moves well. Can eat outside in good weather

Went to view the wonderful gardens and conservatory and decided to pass up the cafeteria style lunch and go for the finer dining. What a wonderful surprise to find that whoever the chef is puts a lot of careful thought and great execution into his meals. Both of us loved our entrees, the setting was outside for us....quiet and lovely... More

Yes, it's a little pricey. Getting 10% off with my membership card helps a tiny bit. But in the realm of "cafeterias", the food offered is quite good. There are some much-better versions of cafeteria food like burgers, roast chicken/pasta or whatever the entree of the day is... great paninis and GOOD salads (not just cheap iceberg mix - real...

It was great...surprisingly so, we were expecting cafeteria food at ripoff prices, but it was a great place. Fresh taking food, nice breads and wonderful array of desserts. Only drawback was that a chicken sandwich on croissant was $9.50...I thought that was a little much, but they do sell half sandwiches and the chix salad was very tasty!

If you don't have much time to eat this is an ideal place which is cafeteria style and is children friendly. Of course we had to have their famous mushroom soup, and other items. We had room for dessert which was great and also their hot apple cider.

The restaurant is inside the Garden. The Terraces Restaurant is an informal cafeteria style with both indoor and outdoor seating. They have a good children's menu including pizza, hot dogs, mac and cheese and chicken tenders. There is beer and wine for adults. The mushroom soup is amazing. Their chili is very good. On a cold winters day it is... More
