Great place for breakfast or lunch. The food is great and the coffee good too. You can sit outside and there is lots of shade and the outlook to the garden is very pleasant

Tucked away in the botanical gardens this is a really nice cafe. The food was tasy and well priced and their smoothies and milkshakes are amazing. My favourite was the honey and wattleseed smoothie - so delicious.

A short walk from the Hilton Doubletree where the mediocre breakfasts are ruined by the masses of tour groups that descend at all hours. Beautiful setting, tables in sun and shade. Nice menu to choose from complimented by great coffee. Loved the mushroom mania dish!...More

After a hot morning of walking, we stopped by for lunch. Cold Thai Beef Salad was beautiful and the Cajun Chicken Burger hit the spot! Washed down by fridge cooled tap water, milkshake and a freezing mango frappe. We were hot but content!

Make this a destination for breakfast or lunch and explore the Botanical Garden. We went for breakfast...the Eggs Benedict was delicious. There are lots of choices and they even offered a gluten free dessert.
