Critics say Big THUMBS up for Hanging Gardens Cafe at The Garden Centre

This is Courtney and John who are the owners of the cafe at The Cottage Garden Nursery which they have aptly called The Hanging Gardens Cafe. John and Courtney took over the cafe last year and recently it was reviewed by online site and no surprises to all of us who LOVE the cafe the reviews are wonderful.
I quote......."An oasis in the middle of Brisbane's city landscape, Hanging Gardens is a tranquil sanctuary to unwind and escape from the hustle and bustle. Offering sumptuous gourmet fare, not to mention vegetarian, vegan and gluten-free options, Hanging Gardens is a welcome addition to the East Brissie cafe scene. Sit back and relax with a cup of coffee and a freshly baked muffin or brownie (raspberry and dark choc is now a personal favourite) and enjoy the peaceful atmosphere of the Cottage Garden Nursery." 

                  The peaceful setting.
                             Some of the super yummy, moist and filling muffins in question. I had a bannana one  the other day and it was fantastic. A reminder the cafe is open 7 days from 7 am to 2 pm and take away is available. ALL food is made on the premises by head chef Mick.
Below is a few recent shots of my space at the Nursery. Sorry some of the pictures are blurry.

I spotted this guy at the Nursery. It almost didn't look real at first. Living proof of the no chemical philosopy of the Nursery. Hope you had a great day.


  1. Oh wow Katherine! Your space is so lovely with sooo many gorgeous things that I would love. Don't tell me I will have to come up your way again!!...any excuse of one of those homemade muffins.

  2. Oh next time I am definitely having a coffee and a muffin, hopefully you can join me too! ;-)

  3. Check out that green frog. How cool is that in the middle of East Brisbane! xx

  4. The green tree frog makes my heart sing - how gorgeous. All I see is cane toads - yuck.
    How funny, I remember buying a drink and saying to John what a cool place to work getting to be surrounded by beautiful gardens and listening to John Butler Trio, which was playing at the time. I didn't know his name was John though.

  5. I'll have to check this Nursery out one day, it looks fab!

  6. What a great place! I'd be in my element - yummy food, plants and treasures - all in the one spot!!

  7. Cute store! I love the look of that little cafe!

  8. That cafe looks great! Most people around here don't even know what vegan means.

  9. Great review and all so true, delightful corner to enjoy a quiet moment in the sun or poke around to see what fun new things are on display

  10. Hello. That looks like a lovely cafe. A nice place to meet maybe.

    Thank you. It was a pleasure seeing you today. Unfortunately, everyone was accounted for in the car, which means I forgot to leave one of them with you!

  11. It is so lovely to sit there and enjoy a coffee, especially after having a poke around at all the gorgeous things on display in your shop :)
    Thanks for visiting my new blog, (finally did it!) you are a gem, and your support means so much to me

  12. we visited for the first time on the weekend and have found a new favourite place. we'd just come from the WAC for coffee so didn't eat or drink but did buy some wonderful little collapsable tables for our new home (I think from your space) and we were wowed by the amazing collection of plants.

    thanks for the tip off :)

  13. Very good info. Lucky me I ran across your site by accident (stumbleupon).
    I have book-marked it for later!
