The lunch we had here was very good (soup and salad) and the tables were in an area with a view of Lake Huron. The menu is for a light lunch and the service is prompt.

This is a wonderful place to eat lunch and enjoy the view of the garden. Can't see much of it from the window but it's enough to enjoy while eating. Products for sale are reasonable and good quality.
