The Kitchen Garden Café in the Coastal Maine Botanical Gardens Visitor Center offers fresh and delicious fare, whether for lunch or a snack. Whenever possible, we use local and organic ingredients. We even include herbs, fruits, veggies, and edible flowers from our own Burpee Kitchen Garden – right outside the café’s doors.  Because we use only the best available ingredients, our menu changes frequently based on availability and season. Packaged snacks are also available in the Gardens Gift Shop.

With its broad curve of window wall, bamboo floors and handmade furniture with elements of recycled materials, the café itself is welcoming and attractive; the views from every window are spectacular.

Kitchen Garden Series dinners featuring Maine’s top chefs, spring and late-summer teas, and other events provide more opportunities for visitors to enjoy our beautiful café. Please stop in soon.

Catered lunches are available for groups year-round with advance reservations. We also offer rental opportunities for parties, weddings, meetings, and other get-togethers.

The Kitchen Garden Cafe is open from spring into autumn. Hours are usually 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
