A yummy array of baked goodies and drinks. Can especially recommend the lemon and mint drink which was simple but perfect. We were served by the artist herself which was exciting.

Hubby and I shared an Maple and Walnut Ice Cream Sundae here last week in order to extend our time in the beautiful garden setting. it came out in a traditional sundae bowl on a silver tray. Decorated with a flower and plenty of syrup...and cream it looked a delight. Plenty big enough for the two of us to share. It was delicious too! They have sandwiches and cakes too. Reasonable prices.More

The café is part of the Giants House garden so you only visit if you are already in the garden. Well worth taking some extra time to have lunch. The choice is minimal as all is freshly prepared while you wait in the amazing surroundings...of the garden. We had the lemon and mint drink, egg sandwiches and lavender shortbread - all tasty and prettily presented. We waited for about 30 min for our food and drink after ordering, but that is not a problem given the surroundings.More

When you visit the incredible 'Giant House', you'll see an incredible mosaic exhibit all about the property and if you want to enhance the experience then go to place your coffee or tea and snack order at The Artist's Palate (on site cafe) and enjoy...these in the garden patio that has an incredible view of the artwork and local landscape. Don't skip this or the decorative washrooms while you're here. Enjoy!More
