Experienced a delightful champagne lunch outside in the garden among 8 yoga friends. Enjoyed a salmon salad among an array of flowers, sun and chirping birds. Very relaxing and stress less. I found this menagerie of decor Very unusual but tastefully done. A unique experience that I would visit again

Antiques, flowers, interesting plants in wonderful containers stuck all over the place makes this a one of a kind, European flair, experience. We really enjoyed the homemade mushroom and squash soups, crepe, quiche and salads. Lunch was $16/person and made a VERY pleasant day in a secret garden!

A very warm welcome to this beautiful cafe and gardens was very much appreciated. Outstanding food choices which were absolutely delectable. The art photography, ambiance and music took me away to another place and time. Most of all was how we were embraced as though we we were long lost family !

What a wonderful surprise to find this charming French inspired cafe/gallery in the Towles Court area! Everything about Shoogie Boogie is delightful: the charming owner, the relaxing garden setting, the innovative, though limited, menu. We were a party of six and were made to feel that we were guests at a friend's home. The various quiches, salads, soups and sandwiches... More

This is one of the loveliest places for lunch. The ambiance is very special and very relaxing. The service is gracious. The food was delicious and made from very fresh ingredients. Menu is limited and pricey but salads, soups and sandwiches are all unusual and special. Looking forward to returning.
