An ideal stop in the center of the botanic garden, for a refreshment or a quick one-dish meals, an excellent espresso with a snack, nice terrace in the sun, good atmosphere in the open air.

Not far from downtown and right along the water. Easy to get to and free. Many greenhouses to see and wide open tranquil spaces. Use it to get to the UN. Well worth a visit. Catch all the Pikachu's!

Located in the heart of the Botanic Gardem, this restaurant offers both menu and plat du jour. Nice terrasse where to have lung during the summer period. Plat du jour is good, and price is fair.

We stopped here for afternoon tea after a very pleasant stroll through the gardens. The chocolate muffin was fine but the coffee was terrible. After spending a few weeks travelling through France and Switzerland we've experienced very good coffee at most Cafes. Sadly this Cafe...More
