Cafe Jardin

All dining in the Gardens also requires an online Garden Admission Reservation.

The “coastal garden”  cuisine at Café Jardin  marries vibrantly fresh California produce with  a French pedigree. The restaurant is located in full view of the central flower gardens. Dining takes place outdoors for the most part, moving indoors in case of inclement weather – a rarity in Orange County.


Monday – Friday                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          11:30 am – 2:30 pm

There is a $5 Gardens admission charge at entry which supports the upkeep of the Gardens.
