The lovely garden restaurant is such a hidden gem. Beautifully manicured grounds. The food was good, and the little shop has amazing stuff - bought lovely art pieces and will be back for more.

Nice selection of bags, jewelry and stationery. Reasonable prices. No pressure to buy anything. There's also a small cafe next to the shop.
