Wow! A place to see every type of art, amazing pieces; statues in the garden, wood carvings, pottery, paintings, furniture, jewellery, clothing, just to name a few! We spent a nice hour just browsing, the cafe was not open yet which was disappointing but will return again.

Nice atmosphere. Good lunch food, coffee, and dessert. Have known about this location for decades, and this as the first time I ate here. The art gallery is a must see.

Well prepared Asian and non-Asian dishes in a nice space. Nice gardens and shop to wander around before or after dinner. Daily specials but otherwise menu pretty limited which is OK for occasional visit but not a place to go to regularly. Due to small size, reservations a good idea. Open seasonally.

Amazing pieces by local artists and international artists alike. Very neat setting and well worth the trip for any tourist. It's not cheap, so be prepared to spend big money on a lot of items here.

We took a turn on to route 15 at a small "Cafe" sign and by chance found the Dunes Gallery and Cafe. This was such a gem to visit. We spent over two hours having a delicious lunch and visiting the gallery and the grounds. There is a variety of all types of artwork and the outside gardens are a... More

The parking lot was full to overflowing the first time we stopped, but this place was worth coming back for. The setting is beautiful, and as you wander through inspiring natural artwork turned lawn furniture; and meander past the on-site garden, you can't help but stop to dream about how you could change your yard. The restaurant beckons from the... More

This is a real feast for your senses. Wonderful lunch menu with the best chowder I have ever tasted. The gallery is specular with works of art from all over the globe. Wander in the back yard amid statuary that transports you back in time. Wonderful experience.

In fact the cafe could easily be lost amid the garden and the galley shop. Both are a treat for your eyes with many interesting pieces to look at and wish for. Lovely ceramics and art as well as other decorating objects. The gardens are lush and full of surprises. The cafe is almost posh in the food it serves... More

The Dunes was a great surprise. We were biking by and went in for a quick look. We stayed for a long time. We had a delightful lunch in the cafe. I ordered lobster quiche and it was memorable. The sticky toffee dessert was delicious as well. Then we went out and looked at the gardens, statues, benches and other... More
