This coffee shop/restaurant is in the middle of a large nursery. Although it makes a nice stop while making garden purchases, it is worthy of a visit for its own sake or just to meet up with friends. Meals can be enjoyed inside or outside....More

Decided to try this place for breakfast, ended up having lunch instead at 11am. Food is nice for a nursery cafe and service is friendly!
