This is a delightful restaurant with linen table cloths, live plant centerpieces, a beautiful view of the gardens and delicious food. You definitely want to make a reservation to avoid any extensive waiting. We arrived at 11:00 am on Sunday and sat right down, but by the time we left, the after church crowd had arrived and it was packed.... More

A very special place! It's only open for lunch and reservations are recommended. First, this is five star dining at chain restaurant prices. Most meals run $9.95 to $12.95 with a few higher items. Lots of items on the menu and we have yet to be disappointed. The deserts are to die for! The chef is a graduate of the... More

My Mom had never been to Brookwood so we decided last minute to take her there. The food in the café is wonderful and we always make reservations...but not this time. It was about 12:20 and we were told that it would take 20 to 30 minutes to get a table even without reservations. That sounded satisfactory to us. We... More

The restaurant looks out over the nursery, which has a pretty water feature and is nice to stroll through after lunch. The food is always flavorful and tastes fresh. The restaurant also has... More

Excellent food and service! The atmosphere is serene and pleasant throughout the cafe. I'd go back in a heartbeat! The gift shop that is next door to the cafe is full of wonderful selections and surprises for the home and garden. We bought interesting plants, candles and a small bird feeder while there. We also enjoyed browsing the art shop... More

This restaurant is part of the Brookwood Community and doesn't disappoint. There is also a beautiful garden center with a wide variety of plants for sale and a lovely gift shop with something for everyone. We spent four hours there enjoying the wonderful food in the restaurant, the charming shop and choosing some lovingly grown plants to take home. I... More

I have been to lunch (only meal they serve) several times over the past 4 years and have never ever been disappointed. Eating lunch at the "Cafe" is not only a culinary delight with dishes that are unusual and varied, but the atmosphere of elegance and the wonderful view outside of the many windows in the dining room only add...
