The Green Dream Café in the Botanic Garden offers
"a tranquil oasis for an al fresco vegetarian lunch"
and home baking with afternoon tea using the herbs and other products of the garden
So says the Vancouver Island Beyond Victoria magazine last July
"What started out as ‘just a lunch’ evolved into a delightful, relaxing occasion that made us eager to return. Great, healthy food, gorgeous environs, friendly conversation and a tranquil, calm pace – it doesn’t get any better than that on a lovely summer afternoon. If you go be sure to put aside enough time to enjoy the Botanic Garden and all it has to offer, and be prepared to be drawn in to the quiet, measured tempo that permeates this special place".
Lunch $ 15 herb crusted lentil flan with garlic aioli
zucchini bread and gathered greens
