refreshing place to visit

Posted on 08 / 10 / 2015

We popped in to see if they had vegan options and they had several. The staff were super friendly and the "eggs" Benedict made with lentils was really fun and different. We'll be back.

Pros: nice atmosphere , friendly people, different food than the typical

beautiful location

The cafe is inside the beautiful horticultural gardens. Vegan options were light, pretty much fancy raw salads, but tasty and probably fine for lunch if you're not super hungry.

Eat well – eat here

Posted on 03 / 05 / 2014

This café deserves another review since the only other one was posted way back in 2012. We were there for lunch last weekend, after a tour of the Horticultural Centre of the Pacific, to which the café is attached. The menu takes its cue from the gardens as it carries out its vision of helping people ‘eat healthier’. Even though it was our first time there, it is obviously a popular spot since it was constantly full all the time we were there.
We shared “Beet around the bush”, which is sort of a sandwich, but that word doesn’t do it justice. It came with a bowl of leek and potato soup, which we were surprised to find was not creamy, just filled with lots of chopped leeks and big chunks of potato. Menu items are noted as being vegan, dairy free or gluten free, meaning we didn’t have to ask – how lovely. The menu is available on the café website, so check it out before you go – and then be prepared to have a delicious and healthy meal.

Pros: delicious healthy food, creative menu, horticultural centre views

Country Gem for Gluton Free

Posted on 09 / 30 / 2012

We didn't expect to eat on the patio on Sept 30, but there we were. The patio is positioned so that it takes advantage of the midday sun.
The food today was a choice of breakfast and lunch being Sunday. Eggs Benny was excellent and the chicken stew was amazing. The desserts were all tempting, but the ice cream sandwiches won out, and were a highlight (not your corner store ice cream sandwich!). Our daughter needs gluton free and she was catered to 100% with some of the best gluton free bread she had ever tasted. One of the ice cream sandwiches was gluton free (coconut) It was busy and the service was not as orderly and timely as one might normally demand, but we weren't in a rush and the afternoon was so nice, it wasn't a factor. Its year three of this establishments existence and this winter is the first time they will remain open for fall winter service. Breakfast and lunches only at the moment. Its now on our top ten list for weekend breakfast and lunch.
Gluton free no longer means comprised taste!

Pros: friendly staff, excellent food, close to city but very country
Cons: meals served 10 minutes apart, indoor dining area is limited, kitchen production rate is slow
