I had an awesome visit at The Rose Garden. Served with delicious food while enjoying the colourful gardens. The staff is very attentive and service was excellent. I will defenitely recommend this as a - not to be missed - venue if you are visiting PE.

In the last 2 months, I have visited The Rose Garden (at Floradale Nursery) three times for breakfast. Once for a business meeting, once with friends and today, with family. I've had the same breakfast each time I've been - a latte and omelette, adding bacon on the side each time. It was busy inside today (it's a Saturday) but... More

Today i revisited the Rose Garden and the flowers looked so pretty. The place is looking much nicer now that all the plants are becoming established - my friend and i enjoyed the creamy scrambled eggs which were cooked to perfection with a great cup of coffee next to a lovely warm fire .

We had a very pleasant breakfast during the week. The setting is great and almost feels outside of town ... always fun walking through a nursery before/after a meal. The menu is compact, but each meal seems to have attention and effort put in. The portion of salmon was quite generous, and I really enjoyed my coffee. We'll definitely return... More

I'm sure lunch is just as good, but their Eggs Benedict are my favourite. And if you get a chance, sample the Orange cake. Child friendly, with a play place, and the service is fantastic.
