Despite my better judgement, I decided to give the Dragonfly Cafe at Eden Gardens one last try, mainly because I was meeting a friend at the nursery. This time we were served by a friendly young woman, which was much better than the very rude experience last time. BUT the food was awful. The menu had so little choice it... More

We had breakfast on a Sunday in March for four people. We arrived around 9.45am and we were seated within 10 minutes. It took at least 30 minutes before our waitress took our order. After waiting another 30minutes after ordering we were told that one of the meals was not available. 15 minutes after that the first of the four... More

We love the atmosphere and the nursery so have been regular customers. However, there have been far too many situations of staff being rude and perhaps racists. This is not limited to one particular staff but the entire crew in general. We thought we'd give one more try today but the situation has not changed. The management needs to replace... More

Located in Eden Gardens nursery, North Ryde. Inside and outside under umbrellas.Service was good and ensured we were located under ceiling fan on a very hot day. We enjoyed lunch but cost we would have expected better for the price.

Food was tasty, but expensive. Good arrived 40 minutes after ordering and the restaurant wasn't too busy. We had to cancel a side dish as it didnt arrive by the time we finished our mains even after a follow up. The $6 surcharge on weekends is unwarranted.

We have been going to Eden Gardens for over 10 years for coffee. It has been a central meeting place for us to meet friends and family for coffee for years. This all changed the last visit when we arrived and took a seat for coffee we were told that we weren't allowed to sit there if having coffee. There... More

Came here for a birthday lunch with a large group of people (made a booking). The food and the price were ok but the service we received was excellent. They were very attentive, food and drinks came out at a reasonable time, made sure everything was ok and they took care or the cake we brought. Took it to the... More

Thank you to Nico and his team for our fantastic Assistants Christmas lunch. The food was fantastic, the service excellent and the ambiance was outstanding. I would thoroughly recommend Dragonfly Café to anyone looking for a local venue that serves great food.

This place should be great, as it is located in the beautiful Eden Gardens Centre, but unfortunately, due to the extremely poor service, it is not somewhere I would recommend to anyone. I recently went there for breakfast with some friends, and although the place was nearly empty, it was as if we were invisible. It's as if the staff... More
