Kitchen Garden Café

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. 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.

New for 2014 – stop by the new walk-up window on the Kitchen Garden Terrace for quick dining service daily.

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

Catered lunches are available for groups year-round with advance reservations.

The Kitchen Garden Café is open from April 15 through October.
Hours are usually 9 a.m.-3 p.m.
