Fresh at its best

Rhody's is CLOSED for the season... look for us again in April 2018!

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 
No admission fee to visit the Café located just inside the entrance of the Botanical Gardens!
