Love all of the food here. They do have a very large menu which can make it difficult to pick a dish. the dining experience was nice. I was with my husband and baby. Husband really liked the food too. the waitstaff was friendly and pleasant.

A great stop to sit, select from a wide variety on the menu, and enjoy lunch. Many tables with umbrellas to shade you from the hot sun.

It is ok to make a break during visiting the Botanic Garden. They have quite options to choose from.

Grab a table with an umbrella and go order your food. They will give you a number and deliver to your table. Nice variety of lunch offerings, kid friendly, culturally friendly, diet friendly. Pricey but not outrageous. Tables turn over quickly. If you didn't bring a picnic - this is a nice spot to grab a nibble.

The Garden deserves a better cafe with great specialty coffees. We have come to expect a certain level of excellence in coffee preparation, and this falls so far short of that. A great disappointment.

Not good food. Definitely not good service. It was crowded when we went but the staff could have been nicer. Maybe it was because it was crowded.

I had delivery to my room from this cafe almost every night I was in NY. Lots of fresh, filling, healthy options. Definitely recommend the wraps, as well as the fruit salad and spicy waffle fries. Great prices too.

We made a point to come back here a second time during our week in Brooklyn. The first was on our way back from visiting the Home of FDR. We were so hungry. We planned to stop further out of Brooklyn and ended up waiting until we were almost home. Good job we did. Our appetites were very much satisfied... More
