After spending 5 months in remote Yulara, this was the best lunch to come back into the world to. So super fresh and tasty, amazing flavours and a very nice setting in the botanical garden. I had the falafel sandwich... so good!!!!! Very happy costumer, so worth the visit!

Stopped here for a falafel sandwich and pancakes for the kids. Really nice change from the many burger and chips places in town. Quick services, nice food, good location.

I've had coffee and lunch here many times, as the ease of parking, and contact with nature really is special. It's a great location for friends or colleague meetings as a number of tables are far enough apart as to afford conversational privacy. A coffee, a stroll around the desert gardens, some bird spotting then wander back in for another... More

The misting around Verander was a welcome experience in 38 c heat. Beetroot crisps, walnut, leaves salad and juice was excellent. We had a different experience to previous reviewers. I guess down to who is on duty? I whole heartedly recommend the cafe.

We had the best breakfast here, and during the rest of the week we were in Alice Springs we returned for coffee and for lunch on different days. The cafe is in a great location in the middle of the Botanic Gardens. Plenty of disabled parking too, and easy walking distance.

Nice location in the (free entry) Botanic Gardens. Good breakfasts with the plant and wild life a bonus. Non-obtrusive gallahs and parakeets, plus a Rock Wallaby on the path behind the café.

I had a lovely breakfast here, followed by a quick trek up the hill to check out the plant life etc. Very enjoyable and I highly recommend you include in your stay.
