It was a rainy day when our group visited the Butchart Gardens. The cafeteria was quite charming in decor. Our lunch was served buffet style in the inner room. The vegetables were the best food served. The salad greens were excellent quality. The chicken they served was rather dry. But overall it was a pretty good meal.

Cafeteria style. I had spinach salad, my husband had pasta dish. Both were very fresh and good. Room suits the gardens with a lot of glass and plants.

This restaurant lives up to the quality of the gardens. The salads were so fresh and the homemade dressing awesome. The place is so clean. An awesome experience.

We dined at the Blue Poppy several nights in succession prior to enjoying the concerts.
The cafeteria style is convenient and fast. The food was surprisingly good and arrived quickly.
I enjoyed the half chicken (white meat) each time, my wife had the chicken and the salmon, all meals most satisfying and filling. The prices for the full dinners (excluding alcoholic beverage) is under $20 - good value. We will certainly return.

I remember the blue poppy room being mostly sandwiches and snacks but e recent visit pleasantly surprised me. Lots of gluten free options and hearty dinners are available. Set up like a cafeteria ,the staff are able to move large groups through with ease. The dining area is airy and carefully juxtaposed with plants to give the feeling of eating in a conservatory.
