I love going to Brookwood Community & eating in the Brookwood Cafe. Everything about the place is right - the food is great, the purpose is great, the garden & plant area is great. I have eaten there many times and have never been disappointed. The "special" staff of residents, which are supervised by others, are well trained & helpful.... More

Brookwood Cafe is a 75 minute drive for us, but well worth every minute. The menu is varied and the food is ALWAYS wonderfully delicious. We always bring friends and visiting family here for a delightful experience and they never leave disappointed. The gift shop is also a special treat because the shop offers an extensive supply of tempting purchases.... More

My wife and I dine here at least twice annually. We are never disappointed either with the food or the staff. The food is always prepared very well and the portion size is ample. By the time for dessert arrives, it is a small taste and a to-go box, Always. This time I had roast pork and I found it... More

The Cafe at Brookwood is operated by the Brookwood Community and is partially staffed by those with special needs. The chef is wonderful and the food is always delicious. Take the time to drive there and then enjoy your meal. Leave enough time to go to the greenhouse and gardens, and support the community by buying some plants to bring... More

Everything I have ordered has been great. Recently I ordered their specialty salad and squash soup and they are both equally delicious.

A group of 70+ had lunch there today. I had lemon chicken and it was served hot and delicious. The ice tea was plentiful. A great experience. I highly recommend going there.

Heading into Christmas, Brookwood gets busy so reservations are always a must. As many have mentioned, the large tea-room type setting (white table cloths, napkins, etc.) with a large wall of windows overlooking the garden makes for a very pleasant atmosphere. The attention to detail (fresh warm bread, orange butter, carafes of water.tea) and personal service (we were attended by... More
