The choices at this café are plenty and we have sampled the menu on several visits. It is set in beautiful gardens and you can walk off your lunch/meal through the gardens which is a bonus

This cafe ,in the botanic gardens, is a delightful venue. The menu is small but good. There are some gluten free choices. Can sit inside or out on the deck. Kids are welcome.

The Lagoons Cafe makes an ideal stopping point when exploring the Botanic Gardens for a coffee or a cold drink. Overlooking the gardens themselves with great covered outdoor seating, the service was good and the coffee nice and strong.
