Picnic Cafe at the rose gardens and begonia house is another of those places I leave thinking I should visit more often.
Despite general kid and cafe hustle and bustle there’s something kinda peaceful about being among all those beautiful flowers and people cruising about at leisure.
And the food’s pretty tasty too.
This time I had warm apple and rhubarb crumble with muesli topping since it was morningtime. I particularly appreciated it wasn’t so hot that I burnt my mouth, and wasn’t so sweet that I needed to drown it in cream (but I defy you to have it without some of that delish cream).
Last time I had a cabinet chicken almond croissant which I still have fond memories of, and the moroccan potato feta hash has my name on for next time methinks.
Coffee is by Supreme, and there’s plenty of staff clearing tables and keeping things moving.
Open everyday from 8.30 am to 4.00 pm, and available for private evening functions by arrangement.
