This lace is a cool oasis after a very long walk in the garden. Healthy choices reasonably priced and delicious. Do stop if only to enjoy a cool drink and the shade with a nice view.

This little café is on the grounds of Bok Tower. I had a BLT and my wife had soup and a turkey and gouda sandwich. Both were very good and reasonably priced. There was a good selection on their menu.

This place is within the grounds of bok tower etc and is the only place to get food or a drink, so it's just as well it's good. We had sandwiches, all freshly made, but the other salads coming out looked fresh and well prepared. It's licensed so if beer or wine is your drink of choice your in luck.... More

Their menu is geared for healthy, but tasty eating with each dish prepared to order. It arrives rather quickly and always fresh. The staff is friendly, figure about $20 for lunch if you drink wine and/or beer.

Its been a while since I've been there. I think it was 2012 but it was truly great food at reasonable prices. I think I had a salad and it was delicious. If things haven't changed since 2012, I would have no qualms about going there again.

Had a wonderful fresh lunch at the Blue Palmetto Cafe today while visiting Bok Tower. I had homemade chicken soup and a turkey and Gouda sandwich on a whole wheat bun. Both were very good. We sat outside in the lovely courtyard. I recommend having lunch and then walking to the Tower. Such a nice day.

If you are spending the day at Bok Tower Gardens and touring Pinewood, this would be the logical pace to eat lunch. It is a small cafe on the grounds of the garden. It is by the gift shop. The food and prices are what you might expect. We have enjoyed their Easter breakfast buffet.
