Dine & Shop with Us

Enjoy a fabulous dining experience at one of Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden’s two restaurants — the Garden Cafe or the Robins Tea House. Both venues offer stunning settings and a menu inspired by the season’s freshest flavors and ingredients. Turn your Garden visit into a memorable occasion with Garden-inspired culinary creations.

Savor the experience by bringing a piece of Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden home with you with a memento from the Garden Shop. We offer a bit of everything to satisfy your garden fancy — from home decor and gardening books, educational toys to jewelry, and from our favorite seeds to our staff’s favorite gardening tools.
