A cafe with a view on an enchanting garden where local greens and flowers find their way into Cafe Flora meals. Fresh and delicious in every bite, we stopped here based on pure fresh local grown foodie reputation. Les trésors du Café Flora sont enchanteurs pour l’œil et les papilles gustatives. Là, vous dégusterez des plats santés composés de produits locaux ainsi que des herbes et fleurs comestibles fraichement cueillies dans Les Jardins Botaniques sur lequel le Café et sa grande terrasse ensoleillée donnent vue. Comme for thé garden or the food but enjoy both! Stop here on your way East off the trans-Canadian highway!

We chose the cafe — which I think of as Cafe Failure — because we were visiting the gardens so we had no alternatives when it took more than an hour for us to get our food. First, we stood by the “please wait to be seated sign” for more than five minutes as waitresses scurried in every direction but ours. Finally my husband walked over to a counter to get someone’s attention and ask how long we’d have to wait before being seated. The waitress was annoyed. A few minutes later another waitress seated us. It took maybe seven minutes for a waitress to ask if we wanted drinks, and we ordered soft drinks. We asked if she could also take our food orders, as we worried we might not see her again. They were out of chicken paninis and something else, she said. Fifteen minutes later she brought us cans with straws, saying they’d run out of glasses. Maybe 50 minutes later we had our burger and grilled ham and cheese. In the meantime, other dinners who were near us and were leaving had noticed how long we’d waited and told us they hoped we’d eat soon. The food was tasty, but by then we were famished and couldn’t really appreciate the quality. The outside deck is pleasant and the waterfall sounds in the background were soothing, which is what we needed!

This colourful and vibrant restaurant is located in the Botanic Gardens in Edmunston with the terrace overlooking the waterfall and gardens. A paradise.
The menu is as fresh and exciting as the food. The fish tacos and burger are exceptional. Fantastic fresh deserts and try the homemade lemonade.
Service from the young and enthusiastic team is great.
This is a rare and unusual gem in this part of the world. Worth a big detour.
Don't forget to look round the beautiful gardens too!

My partner and I visited Canada from Ireland to do a cross country driving tour between Halifax and Toronto. We needed a break from long driving and pulled off of the highway thinking the gardens would have a large parking lot and a place to walk and stretch the legs. We were pleasantly surprised to find Café Flora. At first we thought it looked a bit pricey but after a very delicious meal we left feeling that the meal was amazing value. We both had fish tacos because we are obsessed with them in general and have tried them in around 20 cities in Europe, East Coast USA and Canada. These tacos were fresh and delicious!! I highly recommend them. We had fried ice cream for dessert. I’ve had it before but I found it especially tasty here. I couldn’t stop eating it even though I was full. The staff were a delight and could speak English - so for those who cannot speak French don’t be afraid to stop here. Bottom lines: friendly staff, fresh seasonal and delicious food. I suggest getting off the highway at the botanical garden here and having a bite to eat.
