We had a quick lunch at this cafe during our visit to the gardens. We had a fairly good lunch for a very reasonable price. We thought it was a place worth going for lunch.

The cafe produces from scratch soups on a daily basis. They are flavorful and a welcome lunch under the colorful glass bouquets created by Chihuly. Salads and sandwiches are also usually tasty.

I didn't expect I would find healthy choice here, But I like the sandwich I ordered. They're fresh and tasty. The setting of this cafe was wonderful with fresh flowers and display arts.We felt we're seating in the garden. It's true to the name!

I tried the Michigan Cherry salad here and it was delicious :) I would recommend the cafe for adults; there were choices but they were limited for Children. They did have a variety of beverages which I found good.

Yes, this is a cafeteria-style restaurant. Yes, it is located within a public attraction. But don't let these things deter you. This is a very nice place to have lunch. The setting is beautiful. There is outdoor seating next to a water feature, while the...More
