Mendocino Coast Botanical Gardens, Where nature is elemental


Rhody's Garden Café

Fresh at its Best!

Rhody's is open for the season!

Rhody's Garden Café is open seasonally, with the same level of high-quality ingredients from regional providers including fresh-picked produce from our own organic Vegetable Garden. Made-to-order sandwiches on organic Fort Bragg Bakery and Roland's Bakery breads (including gluten-free), housemade soups, and beautiful organic salads with housemade dressings. Daily lunch specials include grilled gourmet Panini sandwiches, and there is always a vegan option.

Have lunch on The Plaza, overlooking the Perennial Garden or take your food out for a picnic at your favorite picnic bench or in the Cliff House. There's no admission fee to come eat at the Café. 

Great desserts are back—enjoy a cup of Thanksgiving Coffee with a daily treat from Bolliver’s Fine Foods, Costeaux Bakery or one of Marie's fresh-baked cookies. Gluten-free desserts available. Avoid the after-school crowds in town and purchase your Cowlick’s Ice Cream cone here. Did you know that with a minimum purchase, your favorite canine can enjoy a "doggy ice cream"? Drinks at the Café include made-to-order fruit smoothies, hot, iced, or blended coffee, Chai and other teas, and Marie's Fresh Organic Strawberry Lemonade.

Open daily (April–Sept) from 11:00am to 3:00pm
Lunch served until 3:00pm, ice cream until 4:30pm
