The parking lot was full to overflowing the first time we stopped, but this place was worth coming back for. The setting is beautiful, and as you wander through inspiring natural artwork turned lawn furniture; and meander past the on-site garden, you can't help but stop to dream about how you could change your yard. The restaurant beckons from the... More

This is a real feast for your senses. Wonderful lunch menu with the best chowder I have ever tasted. The gallery is specular with works of art from all over the globe. Wander in the back yard amid statuary that transports you back in time. Wonderful experience.

In fact the cafe could easily be lost amid the garden and the galley shop. Both are a treat for your eyes with many interesting pieces to look at and wish for. Lovely ceramics and art as well as other decorating objects. The gardens are lush and full of surprises. The cafe is almost posh in the food it serves... More

The Dunes was a great surprise. We were biking by and went in for a quick look. We stayed for a long time. We had a delightful lunch in the cafe. I ordered lobster quiche and it was memorable. The sticky toffee dessert was delicious as well. Then we went out and looked at the gardens, statues, benches and other... More

Met a group of friends for lunch. It felt like we were in a rainforest. Beautiful setting looking out at the grounds. I had the chicken bacon wrapped and salad. Delicious!! You could easily spend an hour or so after lunch exploring the grounds and gallery. It should definitely be on everyone's top ten list of places to see when... More

Always love having lunch here as well as touring the gardens and shopping in the craft and gift shop. This was a friends birthday lunch, So was enjoyed by all. One had mussels which she loved, two had the lamb burger- the salad that accompanied it was delicious.

What a great place to visit. Lots of neat items in the gallery and fantastic food. We decided to stay for dinner and it was one of the best dinners we have had so far. That staff is very friendly and you have to spend at least two hours to see all the displays. Beautiful garden also.

Certainly did not expect this culinary delight which is tucked into the lower floor of an eclectic gift shop with its collection of unique offerings. Beautiful grounds to stroll also. Must stop, must eat, must shop. Recommend the Chefs Chowder.

I was very impressed. I travel a lot and I am lucky to eat at some fantastic places. My dinner here was one of the best meals I've had. Ordered the... More
