Enjoyed brunch at the cafe followed by a wonder thru the gorgeous gardens and new nursery being developed by the owners. This site is a jewel in the Hutt Valley Crown. Do visit you won't be disappointed.

Been quite a few times to this cafe and continue to return. Lovely food, friendly staff, and nice atmosphere. Very good variety of food to suit any taste and age. Even the background music fits the style and scene and makes for a nice experience overall. Gardens utterly charming!A bit of a drive for us to get there, but it's always worth it. Thumbs up from us!

This was our third visit to the gardens. The cherry blossoms were beautiful as always. The staff were friendly even though the place was packed with visitors. You could join the club and become a life member at a very reasonable price if you wish and you could visit as many times as you want there for the rest of your life.

Visited the gardens for a picnic and a wander. I had never been so wasn’t sure what to expect.

The gardens were lovely, partly due to it being spring and the cherry blossoms were out but I think it would be equally as beautiful summer and autumn.

While there were a few people we managed to find moments of solitude and a quiet place to eat our picnic.

The entry fee was only $5 well worth it.
