The Café is a delightful oasis within Longwood Gardens. Food selections are interesting, good tasting and competitively priced. We especially enjoy the restaurant when Longwood is open late. My wife loves the vegetarian selections and I like their creative sandwiches. I especially like being able to mix and match two different sandwich halves. As members of Longwood we receive a...

Quiet, warm atmosphere to enjoy beautiful prepared food. And it was so nice to see that they are supporting and using local farm products in the area. They are using Black Garlic products from ObisOne, llc from Pennsville New Jersey. I was not disappointed as a guest of my cousins who took me there for the day.

Food was prepared from locally sourced farm fresh vegetables and fruits. Some unique dishes as well as some traditional items including sandwiches, hot food, and home made ice tea!

Have eaten here many times over the past few years and have never been disappointed. The food is surprisingly good for a cafeteria. A little pricey, but not outrageous. The sandwiches are fresh and tasty and not skimpy. My son always gets a salad which he likes. And, you can be in and out quickly if you wish. Even when... More

While a little expensive, go for it!!!! So fresh and delicious. Servers know what's in it for those with food allergies (soy and cilantro are out for me!). Everything I get is so yum. As a member, I go here 5-6 times per year. Today they had a tomato featured plate. Freshly mixed heirloom tomato salad, tomato bisque, and grilled... More

We had lunch here while visiting Longwood Gardens. A nice variety of hot foods, sandwiches, wraps, salads, and drinks. We enjoyed the view and it was nice to just relax for a while.
