Small cafe inside the Norfolk Botanical Gardens. Light lunch options of sandwiches, wraps, soups, and beverages. Food is appealing and tasty. Rather pricey. A canned coke is 3.00 (I just bought a 12 pack for that!). Can get your entree to go, to eat inside...with the air conditioning or outside under the umbrella tables. Located next to the Japanese Gardens, which is one of the best areas in the whole gardens. Lotus were in bloom with frogs in the pond when I went in July. The Bonsai trees are awesome!More

We enjoyed the food. It was served quickly. There was a lot of food had to bring some back home. Great for a break while at the Botanical Gardens.

Decent food and a nice place to relax after spending half a day touring the Botanical Gardens. Food options were good and tasted very nice.

...food at this Botanical Gardens outlet. Right next to the beautiful Japanese garden, if you’re peckish, go here!

We stopped in here while spending the day at Azalea Gardens and this was a really nice surprise. I didn't expect they would actually have food other than snacks. They have sandwiches, salads, and flatbreads too. They do have cold drinks and snacks as well....This is not a large place but there were several tables inside and much more space outside on the patio for dining if the weather permits. I didn't know the gardens were so large and it was a delight to find this open, air conditioned, and with ice cold drinks to cool us off too. The line was long when we entered as we had the timing to enter just as a large tour group came in but it moved fairly quickly considering the amount of people they were trying to serve. There were multiple lines open for ordering. I got the peach tea and was a little disappointed in how it was prepared and presented. I thought it was going to be brewed tea. What they gave me was a plastic cup with a scoop of peach puree in the bottom and I had to fill it up myself with tea at the cannister and then stir it up. The puree did not mix well with the tea and was slightly chunky going through the straw. The flavor was fine, but I did not like that texture and would have preferred a real brewed peach tea instead without the chunks. Overall, this was a nice little place and a great break from the heat and it felt good to sit down in the air conditioning. I am glad it was there as we really needed the rest. I would not go out of my way to eat here, or plan a meal in the park on purpose, but it is a nice place to take a break and grab a quick bite if you need it. This was good planning on someone's part and I am grateful it was there when we needed it.More

Ate at Marigold and Honey with a friend while visiting Norfolk Botanical Gardens. Outdoor seating area is very nice and enjoyable. Food was good and prices were fair. A variety of wraps, salads, flatbreads are choices with beer, tea, sodas. I'm a local and garden...member, so it's nice to have an eatery in the Gardens when dropping to visit with friends.More

I was surprised by the food, normally I don’t enjoy the food on the grounds of an attraction. It tends to be frozen junk. Both my son and I had the flat breads. And I also had what was like a blueberry muffing but in...the shape of a bar. It was fresh and delicious. I would not hesitate to eat there again. The pricing is still like most on site restaurants.More

Good coffee, no especially noteworthy food choices. But its a nice resting point before continuing the visit.

A nice cafe in the Japanese garden next to the hot house (currently showing orchids). Sandwiches, salads, flat breads, & drinks (also beer and wine). Nice seating area once the weather warms up. Moderately priced.

If you walk over from the airport. It would be about a mile walk. Once you get in the garden, go right and the paved path will take you to the main street. Look across the road and you'll see a group of buildings. The... More
