I have passed by High Hand Nursery and the Conservatory on several occasions, but decided to give it a try for lunch with a friend. First, it is not required, but you really need to make reservations because the restaurant is very busy-even during the week for lunch. We sat inside the Conservatory and although I wanted to sit outside, it was absolutely beautiful inside. The tables have quite a bit of space between them so you don't feel like you are sitting right next to other diners. It is a very relaxing atmosphere nestled inside the actual nursery. The setting is beautiful and either while waiting for lunch or after, you can stroll through all of the plants. My favorite thing about High Hand is that they observe the "farm to fork" idea of serving local produce. It is a great restaurant that still has a small town feel. Service was excellent and portions large.

This restaurant is cradled in a beautiful nursery surrounded by Japanese Maples. It is a conservatory with high ceilings and natural light. It is generally open for lunch; however, once a year during the winter holidays, it opens for dinner. Their food is locally grown, fresh, beautifully prepared and served. Two of my 'go tos' are the homemade potato chips and artichoke dip and the lavender lemonade. Vegetarian and gluten free choices are available. As soon as you enter, you breathe more deeply. We love taking out of towners here for the outstanding menu and the unique atmosphere.

After three visits to Loomis I finally had the chance to eat at the High Hand and it’s something I will do again next visit. I’d love to try everything because the one thing I did try was delicious and served by a charming wait staff.
The earlier you can get here on a weekend, the better. Although the parking lot is large it fills up fast around lunch time. This business is a busy plant nursery/gift shop as well as a restaurant.
Reservations on a weekend are necessary but reaching them by phone is difficult,
I ordered the classic Eggs Benedict. This was a full plate! Next time I think I’ll order a half serving. Everything on their menu looks so good!
