I've eaten lunch at Seaboard Café several times. Recommend going in the fall or spring when the weather is really nice. I don't know if there is no air conditioning, but it's usually open to the outside, so the inside seating is a bit uncomfortable on a warm day. The food is very good. I do not recommend if you...

This is a pretty unique place. The café is inside the garden center. There are plants, pots, gardening supplies, a shop with goodies inside....what more could you ask for on a nice spring day?! We sat outside, a pretty large party, so we put tables together. We were in the shade, there was a nice breeze going, and it was... More

Located inside of Logan's Trading Post - this little restaurant/deli/cafe offers a little of everything. Wonderful burgers, salads, chicken salad and indoor/outdoor seating.

I've gone to Seaboard many times over the last decade, but I hadn't been in a few years because of all of the other restaurants to choose from that are near it. I took a newcomer to lunch after showing her Logan's and had the crab cake special. It was not seasoned well, too much breading and the side virtually... More

The lunch here is great. Only downside and reason it doesn't get 5 circles is because it's a bit of a wait and the ordering can be a bit confusing if you aren't used to the system. However, the food is great. The chicken salad sandwich is phenomenal. Perfect mayonnaise to chicken ratio. My wife loves the crab cakes, claims... More

The food was okay, but the service was REALLY slow. The shop is cute, but I wasn't interested in any garden stuff that day. Overall, this is a decent little cafe and a nice change of pace.

This little café offers great options for lunch. It is located in Logan's Trading Company -- a fabulous garden shop, so the setting of the inside "dining" area is basic but outside is beautiful in the garden area. And the food is fantastic. They offer salads, soups, burgers, sandwiches -- but all done really well with special touches. Be prepared... More

Located inside of Logan's Trading Center (plant nursery), this restaurant has been around for many many years. The owner still greets you at the door and takes your order. They have daily specials that are changed seasonally and the food is made to order so plan to enjoy your wait in the garden. Absolutely wonderful if you have kids with... More

Exceeded expectations. Exciting specialties; generous portions and exceptionally responsive service. The chef came out of his kitchen to explain some of the signature dishes. Bar service a bit slow but hefty wine pours. Make it a "must" when visiting Raleigh,
