Great place to pick up a sandwich after a beautiful morning walk at the center. It mainly has sandwiches, salads and soups. I had a chicken salad sandwich with their pasta salad and it was fabulous.

If you are at the Ladybird Johnson Wildflower Gardens, this is a great place to have lunch. Since you must pay to get into the Gardens it's not really an option unless you are already there. The salads and sandwiches are excellent. The service was good. It's a really a cute place to have a relaxing lunch.

Family needed a bit of air conditioning and a bit of water, so we stopped in after our nice walk (shortish) from Visitor Center and back again.

This cafe not only has refreshing light sandwiches (served with a side of fresh fruit to keep it light) but the patio is delightfully situated in view of many of the closest, beautiful gardens near the main courtyard.

This cafe is inside the Lady Bird Johnson wildflower grounds. You must pay to get in. The cafe makes up for the rather dull grounds. Lots of bushes and trees and very few flowers. Boring. The cafe however was very good. I had the pimiento cheese on sourdough with pasta salad and it was real tasty and filling. The girls... More

A quaint little eating area with great coffee, cookies, ice cream, etc. Quiet, and you can watch the visitors go by. I have a family member who is a docent here, and it is fun to wait, work and enjoy a bit of quiet until the shift is over. The Cafe is right aside the inner courtyard, and you can... More
