  • It was a bit difficult to find at first since our GPS took us to the main building across the street. Thankfully, we read a review here that advised this and we found it right away. A lovely oasis in the cities center and so many gorgeous new blooms! Definitely a must stop if you are in the area! Staff was friendly and very helpful.
  • Beautiful place to read, eat lunch, and stroll. Plus, they have experts there to answer questions and show you around. Would definitely recommend! They're only open for a couple of hours on Fridays (12-2) in the summer but it's well worth the trip over!
