We stopped for lunch here, and I must say I was totally dissapointed in the lack of choice and variety of food! Very expensive for average sandwiches/baguettes. I have never felt so ripped off in all my life.

The snacks and cakes here were very tasty, and a pleasant surprise after the Orangery (also in Kew Gardens).

Had tea and scone while visiting Kew Gardens. The food was ok and the prices not too bad for a captive audience.

Undoubtably it is outside which is significant here, with views over the gardens. We visited on a cold breezy day. It is a coffee shop with a garden centre attached. Service was relatively quick and efficient.

If the weather permits, I try to sit down just outside the building. Bit busy, but one can still feel the special atmosphere of the Kew Gardens. They provide good drinks and foods although bit pricey.
